One of the top scorers of the French volleyball league Nimir Abdelaziz has confirmed for a Poitiers' website that he is going to play in Italy next season.
“Without Poitiers, I would still be an ordinary player. They believed in me, without them, I would not have been able to return to Italy. There I played two years as the second setter in a team. I will go back now much stronger and I'll be playing as an attacker. Milan is an ambitious club. Andrea Giani is a coach and I can’t wait to be there,” says Abdelaziz.
Poitiers now has to find a replacement for Dutch attacker. The first signing of the team would be a receiver, Baptiste Geiler. The official website of the team also adds that Jan Zimmerman, a setter of United Volleys Rhein/Main, is close to sign a contract.
Three out of six players from the starting line-up are probably going to stay. Frederic Barais and Novica Bjelica are going to extend the contracts. Andri Aganits is still considering the contract renewal offer.
