The multiple Brazilian Men’s Volleyball champions Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei announced the contract renewal with the head coach Marcelo Méndez.

 

A 54-year-old Méndez, who started to work with Cruzeiro in 2009, will coach the team for the 11th season as he renewed the contract until 2021. The Argentinean expert, who has one of the longest-running jobs in the professional volleyball worldwide, won all major titles with Cruzeiro, such as the FIVB Club World Championship three times, Brazilian Championship and South American Championship six times each, Brazilian Cup four times, Brazilian Super Cup three times and many more. In total - 34 trophies!

Cruzeiro also contracted Canada national team captain John Gordon Perrin. A 29-year-old outside hitter came to the club after a season with Belogorie Belgorod in Russia. Perrin was a one-time Olympian (2016 Rio de Janeiro) and a two-time Turkish Championship winner (Arkas Spor).

In addition to Perrin, Cruzeiro brought in a 39-year-old setter Rodrigo Leme “Rodriguinho” from Vôlei UM Itapetininga and confirmed a stay of seven players from the 2018/19 roster: Isac Santos, Evandro Guerra, Filipe Ferraz, Rodrigo Leão “Rodriguinho”, Fernando Kreling “Cachopa”, Luan Weber and Lucas Bauer.

After nine years, Cruzeiro parted ways with libero Sérgio Nogueira “Serginho”. Since he came to the Contagem team practically at the same time as Méndez, a 40-year-old player won the exact number of trophies with Cruzeiro as his head coach - 34. The name of a new club of Serginho is still unknown.

Earlier, Cruzeiro said goodbye to a foreign duo Sander – Le Roux.

This is probably record win in Volleyball: Vietnam give away only 5 points to rivals in entire match!

I have seen taller Indian women (Maldives). I guess none of them showed up at the court. You know you are in trouble when you are spiking up instead of down. Reply

VNL F6 M: With 5 players in double digits, Brazil down Iran to clinch last semifinal berth

It was a fantastic game. Brazil won previous game 3-2 and most of spectators were predicting that this match is as easy as previous but Iranian players show that anything is possible if you work hard and believe that you can! Brazilian players were stronger and highly skilled but in volleyball, no one can say win is absolute. Reply
