At the end of the 2019 FIVB Men’s Volleyball Nations League final in Chicago, Illinois, USA, the International Volleyball Federation voted the Dream Team of the Final Six.

 

The FIVB has chosen USA’s Matthew Anderson Most Valuable Player of the Final Six, despite his team lost to Russia in the final. This was his second MVP award in the competition under the FIVB. The first one came in the 2015 World Cup. Anderson also earned the Best Opposite award.

“It’s tough to be happy with losing a gold medal match. I am happy with the way that I played but I can play a lot better. I’m going to work really hard these next two weeks before we take off for the qualification as I’m sure all of us are,” Anderson said for the website of the USA Volleyball Federation (USAV).

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.
Milan????
Things are getting interesting. Reply
