For the first time in history - two players receive "Trofeo Gazzetta"

1849 2

A reward for the best player of the regular season of the Italian men's Serie A1 will have two owners for the first time in the history!


The Italian newspaper “La Gazzetta dello Sport” has been rewarding players in the Italian league since 1976 and it’s the first time that two players will receive it.

Uros Kovacevic (Trentino) and Wilfredo Leon (Perugia) are the winners of Trofeo Gazzetta for the season 2018/2019.

The Serbian and Cuban-born player had great performances in the regular season and we can say that they deserved it.

Uros Kovacevic is amazing hitter. His trajectory is so strange, never know where will ball land.

Uros Kovacevic has had a tremendous year and really has become quite a polished and confident player. He has lost weight (it seems) and his fitness level looks great.
To me, the most valuable player this year has been Gianelli. He has really gone up a level of play in his service, blocking and decision making.
The MIP (Most Important Player) in their run for the title will be Russell as he can put them over the top once he finds his groove, like in the World Club Championships.
The Most Underappreciated Player (MUP) perhaps in the league is clearly Luca Vettori. He has been quietly excellent all year.
Once Lisinac is back in , this is a very difficult team to take down. So many weapons that play so well and fight together.
