Five-year domination of Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei over the Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship came to an end last week when they lost the playoff semifinal series to EMS Taubaté Funvic. Besides losing the national title, Cruzeiro will stay without a foreign duo from this season.


Cruzeiro will have to seek new foreign duo for the next season as both internationals decided not to extend their contracts with the powerhouse.

At the post-season ceremony of Cruzeiro, the American outside hitter Taylor Sander said that he will once return to the Contagem team but for now he will play elsewhere. More precisely – in Russia! At least that is what Cruzeiro reported on their website. Furthermore, the Russian media tied Sander to Dinamo Moscow.

As for the other foreigner, the French middle blocker Kévin Le Roux, neither the name of the club nor the country in which he will continue his career is not known at this point. Both Cruzeiro and himself posted a farewell message on their social media profiles, letting everybody know that their mutual collaboration will not be continued.

Uriarte is coming to Sada and Otavio too, so they will need probably a new libero and a very good player to replace Sander, Sergio is 40 years old and Sada tried Thiago Brendle but he will be on Sesc next year, so theres a one place for a foreigner player

Sada Cruzeiro não quis renovar o contrato do Kevin Le Roux porque precisa de ponteiros estrangeiros.

Re: @Anon - Zhu Ting is not gonna go anywhere till Olympic is over. Wrist injury gonna take sometime to heal and recover. Hopefully She will fully fit before Olympic. Otherwise defending the title is almost impossible for China without Zhu Ting.

If Zhu Ting is still hurt or injured during the tournament, the coach can use her as a middle blocker. I feel she is the best blocker on the team. She has great instincts of where the hitter will hit to, she is tall and her hang time is very good. She is one of the more effective blockers against Egonu.

The different in strength and overall qualities of the team between Thai and the rest are just too great . Thai can still win even with their reserve members. Reply

CL M: Benfica shock Warszawa to record first-ever triumph in pool stage

VERVA Warszawa's defeat was due to Anastasi who too underestimated his opponent.
Starting lineup of VERVA in the match included 4 players who rarely played in the domestic league.

In order to make it to the playoffs, VERVA had to win this match against the weaker team but lost.
Therefore, it became very difficult for VERVA to pass through the group.
