The Portuguese men’s volleyball championship I Divisão runners-up SL Benfica secured the signing of Brazilian international Théo Lopes.


An experienced Brazilian opposite, a former national team member of his country, Théo Lopes, accepted a proposal of the Portuguese side SL Benfica.

A 34-year-payer brings in an enormous international experience to the Lisbon.

He was Brazilian Superliga champion with Cimed/Florianópolis in 2008/09, making his debut for the „Seleçao“ the same year. In the 2009/10, Théo helped Japanese side Suntory Sunbirds win Emperor’s Cup. That’s the year when he conquered the FIVB World League and the FIVB World Championship with Brazil.

In 2011 he was named Best Attacker in the FIVB World League and won the title in the South American Championship. In 2012/2013, Théo took a leading role in Brazilian Superliga championship title of RJX Rio de Janeiro.

Then, he went to Argentina to win three trophies for UPCN San Juan Vóley Club: in the championship, Copa Master, and ACLAV Cup. He returned to his country to defend the colors of Sesi-SP during the next three seasons before returning to Argentina to play for Bolívar Vóley in the 2017/18.

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
