Italian volleyball expert Roberto Piazza will have hard task in Azimut Modena after historic previous season of the club in which they took “triple crown” but most importantly men’s national championship title after 14 years. The appetite of Modena fans has certainly increased and most likely, they will not satisfy with less in the 2016/2017.


 

Piazza was away from Italian volleyball in the past two years and then returned to homeland neither more nor less in the best team - Modena. We wondered if he missed Italian volleyball?

 

“I feel very well because I returned in the most important league in the world. I certainly have not forgotten the Italian league because, thanks to the media, I have followed several matches from abroad,” Piazza said after coaching in Poland, Greece and Qatar in last two years.

Modena fans want the club to repeat last season’s stunt when it took three trophies – League, Cup and Super Cup. And Super Cup is the first trophy which you will have to defend after being appointed as the coach. How did you prepare your team for the semifinal match against Diatec Trentino?

“We will immediately play against Trentino, the new team of former coach (Lorenzetti)...Life is strange (laughs). But our focus is on ourselves. Luckily, I have strong players and they will know how to behave at the beginning of important challenges,” Modena coach stated.

You seem to be an expert in winning the Super Cup since you won it seven times before with Sisley Treviso as an assistant coach. What is the key of playing good volleyball and winning trophies in early stage of the season like now?

“Daniele Bagnoli is really the expert with whom I won several times in Treviso... In this kind of competition, as head coach, I’m a rookie. There are no special keys to win...only one thing: to play to the best of your current possibilities,” Piazza added.

European League Pools determined, prize money increased

Re: @Axe The decision who will be a member of World League should be based on quality and results, not a subjective invitation for reasons that have nothing to do with sports. Unfortunately, FIVB completely lost compass with their desire to experiment without any reason.

Tours player Wounembaina victim of racial insults from Olympiacos fans, French VF urges CEV to react! (VIDEO)

I was in the stadium right were the supposed racist screams took place. We just booed before the service just like we always do, maybe a little bit louder since it was the end of the set. The player must have misunderstoond the sound or he is not used to play in this atmoshere. The refferies were closer to the fans than the player so they would have heard. Now the Tours just trying to avoid their players punishment and get more fans for the rematch or even get Olympiakos disqualified as they cant do this in court. Accusing someone as a racist is a great deal and i dont accept to be called one. Reply
