ITA M: Alessandro Farina selling cheese!

7322 0

Six-time champion of Italy, Alessandro Farina now sells salami and cheese.

 

This summer Farina retired at age of 38, after two seasons spent in Vibo Valentia. With his wife Elena he opened the store on wheels:

It was a life choice. I do not regret at all because volleyball gave me so much but now I have a family and I wanted to spend more time with them

Until a few months ago Farina was one of the strongest “defenders”in the Italian volleyball. He won six titles in Serie A1 with Sisley Treviso, four Italian Cup, three Champions League and many other CEV trophies. He played 609 matches for Sisley in 14th seasons.

ITA M: Lube stay without a head coach – Medei resigns!

Unfortunately, this was expected. I was surprised this hasn't happened after last season and 5 lost finals. It's always a coach that pays the price since it is easier to fire a coach vs the whole team.

It was the same in Perugia at the beginning of last season, when Atanasijevic was injured and didn't play so Perugia lost few games in the row. Sirci immediately fired Kovac, who made that team and save them previous season and brought Bernardi. Coincidentally Atanasijevic recovered at the same time and Perugia started winning. And glory goes to Bernardi :)

I love Lube but they simply have too many good players on the team and they need a coach who is a good psychologist. After losing 6 finals, they have a serious problem.

After their game vs Zenit, when they saved 8 match points, I expected them to walk over Trentino in finals. But they were nowhere to be found.
Lubre fired Christensen to bring Bruno, which was the mistake in my opinion. Christensen was the soul of that team after playing so many years for Lube.

They did an unfair thing to Sada by bringing Simon who was under contract with Sada. They brought Leal as well. He is a great player but he doesn't fit into already established attack formation with Sokolov as 1st attack option and Juantorena as 2nd.

Juantorena is 33 so he should have been replaced with Leal who is 29 if that is a long-term strategy.

But what hurt Lube the most is the fact they lost Grebennikov, who is the best libero in the world. Not sure what happened here, but Lube couldn't find a proper replacement and that is where their defense has a problem.
