Sir Safety Conad Perugia secured two signings for the next season, both coming from the players who are already the part of the roster.


 

Aleksandar Atanasijević and Marko Podraščanin, the Serbia men’s volleyball national team duo, extended their contracts with Perugia for two more seasons each, Sportski žurnal reported.

A 26-year-old opposite Aleksandar Atanasijević is the member of Perugia for the fourth straight year. He is the best scorer of his team this season and also the fourth best scorer in an Italian championship SuperLega UnipolSai (392 points). He scored most points in average per game in December.

As for a 30-year-old middle blocker Marko Podraščanin, the club’s best blocker in 2017/18 and No.7 in the league in this segment (49 kill blocks), this is his second season in Perugia. His best performances in blocking in SuperLega this season were against Vibo Valentia and Monza.

Both players confirmed extending contracts with an Italian side.

“When it comes to the contract extension, it’s true. Both Atanasijević and I will stay in Perugia for, at least, two more seasons each. Since the moment I came here, everything has been working in the best possible way. The club is on the rise in terms of organization and results, with great players and fans around us,” Podraščanin stated for Sportski žurnal.

“I already feel like a local player and I’m glad the club decided to offer me a new two-year contract. The ambitions grow, so does the pressure, but you can’t play at a high level without having that. So, I’m looking forward to the finish of the season and, if we win the title, everything will be much easier in the next two seasons,” Atanasijević said.

The fans of Perugia now eagerly wait for the news regarding the arrival of the Cuban superstar Wilfredo León.

VNL M: Italy get rude awakening from Australia, Brazil and Poland suffer 3 defeats in a row!

I dont think people understand how affected this Brazilian team was affected by the negative news from their Government on pulling funding from sports teams and athletics in the country. it was a punch in the gut from a country that already is reeling with issues. Bruno was the one who publicly called the government out. Clearly he is affected. Its a darn shame. Reply

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
