Serbian middle blocker Aleksandar Okolić is a new player of an Italian men’s volleyball team Allianz Milano.


Although the official announcement on the transfer is still missing, Milano head coach Roberto Piazza has confirmed it – Serbian middle blocker Okolić has strengthened the team.

“The arrival of Okolić will allow me to facilitate the work of some players like Clévenot and even Kozamernik, who have taken on heavier tasks and begin to feel some physical consequences,” Piazza stated.

However, the 26-year-old player will only compete in the CEV Challenge Cup because his presence in SuperLega would make rotation options to Piazza very difficult knowing the regulation of a limited number of foreigners in the lineup. The arrival of one-time European champion (2019) and World League winner (2016) Okolić coincided with the cardiac problems that middle blocker Aimone Alletti has and due to which will be sidelined for a while. Okolić wore the jersey of the Greek side P.A.O.K. last season.

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

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

Not sure this is a smart move on Lube's part. De Cocco is not the level of Bruno, Christenson and Giannelli. Maybe they should outside of Italy for great setter since they forced Christenson out who just signed a 3-year extension with Modena, and Giannelly is not leaving Trentino. Reply
