EMS Taubaté Funvic have prepared several significant changes in the roster for the next season, according to the latest news from Brazil.

 

As Bruno Voloch reported in his blog, the Brazilian men’s volleyball championship Superliga side Taubaté will not be able to keep country’s national team opposite Wallace Souza after two seasons which he spent in the club.

One-time FIVB World Championship and two-time FIVB World League winner Leandro Vissotto, currently a member of Vôlei Renata (Campinas), is projected to replace Wallace in the next season. A 34-year-old player is the best scorer of 2017/18 Superliga regular season with 394 points.

In addition, Taubaté offered a two-year deal to Sesi-SP middle blocker Lucas Saatkamp „Lucão“ and aim to hire the highlight of Lebes Canoas this season, the opposite Aboubacar Neto „Abouba“.

POL M: Heynen criticizes EuroVolley format – “It’s not good for Volleyball”

WC 2019 W: Netherlands surprisingly sweep Brazil on Balkestein’s birthday, China wreck Russia

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply
