Alexey Spiridonov, the European champion from 2013 with Russia, has commented on the big success of the national team at the recent EuroVolley.

 

They won the European Championship and that means they played well. We proved once again that we are the best team in Europe. We had a lot of young players but who will win, if not the young once? Old players, or what? I talked to the head coach and refused to join the national team. He wanted to see me in the squad but I have a pregnant wife, she needed help. I congratulate Sergey Shlyapnikov, who achieved a great victory. As for me, they won everything without me, why should we change that?” asks Spiridonov.

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
