The Israeli men’s volleyball side Hapoel Kfar Saba announced a big signing - Ernardo „Harry“ Gómez!


Ernardo Gómez, a player that collected more than 300 caps for Venezuela national team, strengthened last season’s Israeli Premier League playoff semifinalists Hapoel Kfar Saba. A 35-year-old opposite spent the last season with the Greek club Iraklis Chalkidas.

Greece was Gómez’s favorite destination for playing volleyball as he competed there, on and off, for nine seasons and won five championship titles (two with Olympiacos S.F.P., one with Panathinaikos A.O., and two with P.A.O.K.) and three national cups. He also clinched a championship title and national cup with Fenerbahçe, Turkey.

Gómez’s biggest success with Venezuela national team was conquering the 2003 Pan American Games. He took part in the 2008 Beijing Olympics in which he was the best scorer in the group stage.

Individually, he was named MVP of the Pan American Games once, Best Scorer and MVP of the Turkish league once, MVP of the Greek league three times, MVP of the Japanese league once, Best Scorer of the Japanese league three times, and Best Server of the Japanese league once. Gómez finished the best scorer of the FIVB World League International Round five times.

ITA M: Trentino to hire bombastic duo for next season – Lucarelli and Abdel Aziz!

Re: @former_player
Those are excellent points. I feel for Kovacevic and admire him as a player, but he disappointed in big matches in the playoffs last year and has been struggling with injuries and motivation this year it seems. Russell has become a leading force for this Trentino team this year.
The Perugia - Russell return is an interesting thought if Perugia has enough foreigner room. I am curious who will set that team.
What is going on in Milan? Very quiet

Re: @Suisse It would be interesting to see how would Nimir play in a team where he is not getting the majority of balls. Your comment assumes that Trentino will get rid of MVP of last Europian championship and best outside hitter of Italian league last season, Kovacevic.
Lanza is definitely the weak spot, Perugia needs 1st class outside hitter. Maybe Russell will go back

If these rumors are true then Trentino HAS to do everything to keep Lisinac and Russell. Having top 3 level players in middle (Lisinac), opposite (Nimir) and outside hitter (Russell) positions would be enough to push past Lube. Lucarelli is very very good still not the player he was before the Achilles injury. His experience is top notch.
Perugia has to make a play to get another top outside hitter to replace Lanza who is a weakspot.
Modena may not be as complete.
Things are getting interesting. Reply
