The Portuguese men’s volleyball championship I Divisão winners Sporting CP extended the deal with the Cuban veteran Ángel Dennis.


A 41-year-old Ángel Dennis decided to commit himself to Sporting CP for one more season.

The Cuban-born opposite, who won titles in Italy more than two decades ago, was one of the most deserving players for the championship trophy which Sporting lifted in the 2017/18 after 24 years!

After winning the 1998 FIVB World League, two NORCECA Championships and one FIVB Grand Champions Cup with Cuba national team, Dennis defected from his home country in 2001 and continued competing two years later in Italy. His biggest club successes were made with Cucine Lube Civitanova – SuperLega title, national Super cup and CEV Cup, all in the 2005/06. Dennis obtained Italian citizenship in the following years and briefly played for Italy national team.

In addition to Cuban veteran, Sporting hired Canadian middle blocker Andre Brown. A 27-year-old player came to Lisbon club from the German Bundesliga side WWK Volleys Herrsching.

TUR W: VakıfBank and Eczacıbaşı extend their brutal winning streaks

Sonja Newcombe's transfer to Eczacibasi was hopeless. She is very ineffective in attack. In the match against PTT Spor didn't finish 6 balls in attack. For 2 sets she didn't score any points.

ITA M: De Cecco has contract with Lube in his hands, Bruno going in opposite direction?

Re: @Direktor De Cecco doesn't have hitters like Juantorean, Leal, Simon. Leon and Atanasijevic are not enough. Rychlicki is already a good opposite, will only grow in the next few years to become 1st class.
I am not sure if you noticed that two Perugia starters (Lanza and Podrascanin) were benched in the 4th set. Lube is just too good, they are the best in the world right now.

Re: @former_player
Agree on that, they could try getting Toniutti or Marouf, better choices in my opinion that De Cecco. Lube won a few days ago because of De Cecco's bad decisions, Perugia attackers were in much better mood that Lube's. Reply
