The 2017/18 CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League silver medalists Cucine Lube Civitanova made another transfer hit. Actually, they just made it official.


Current SuperLega and CEV Champions League runners-up Cucine Lube Civitanova contracted Cuban-born superstar Yoandy Leal for two seasons, making the transfer official.

The recent statement of the sporting director Giuseppe Cormio that the Lube did not close the deal with an outside hitter brought discomfort among the fans of an Italian club. Fortunately for them, a 29-year-old Leal became the third reinforcement of Lube after Balaso and Bruninho. The SuperLega side also renewed with Sokolov.

Leal spent the last six seasons playing in Sada Cruzeiro, Brazil, becoming the FIVB Club World Championship winner three times and Brazilian Superliga winner five times. In addition, the player who gained the right to compete for Brazil national team, won South American Club Championship four times, Brazilian cup three times and Brazilian Supercup two times. Individually, he was named MVP of the FIVB Club World Championship once, and Brazilian Superliga and South American Club Championship twice each. This is just a part of individual recognitions which Leal got himself, so far.

„I cannot wait to start playing in the Italian league. I am very happy to be part of a great club like Lube, who is forming a strong team. It will be my first time in Europe and I have chosen Civitanova for my new adventure. I hope to adapt easily, I am charged and motivated, convinced that a great group will be formed together with all my new teammates,“ Leal stated for Lube website.

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
