Funvic/Taubaté took 1-0 lead against Juiz de Fora in the playoff quarter-finals of the Brazilian men’s volleyball Superliga.
Wallace did not know that Argentine expert came to watch this game. Of course, Méndez came to observe Cruzeiro’s potential opponents in the playoff finals, but also to cheer for his son Juan, libero of Juiz de Fora, and scan the players of this club since the most of its squad consists of players under contract with Cruzeiro.
„Of course, he’s not stupid,“ Wallace jokingly commented on Méndez’s presence in the game.
„We will not meet in the next phase. Possibly in a final. That’s what we crave. I have a great respect for him, everyone knows. And I wish him ’good luck’ because you have to do that, right? (laughs). To face them (Cruzeiro) is not good,“ Taubaté opposite said.
