No matter the outcome of the 2017/18 Brazilian men’s volleyball championship Superliga playoff semifinals against EMS Taubaté Funvic, and the season in general, Sada Cruzeiro roster will undergo heavy changes for the 2018/19.

 

Three players will most likely stay in Cruzeiro for one more season: middle blockers Robertlandy Simón (will occupy one of the two places for foreigners) and Isac Santos, and the opposite Rodrigo Leão „Rodriguinho“.

What is nearly 100% certain, Yoandy Leal will leave for Cucine Lube Civitanova, Italy.  Also, it seems Cruzeiro did not reach an agreement on the contract extension with the opposite Evandro Guerra. Now, who might replace them?

The option No.1 one is that Evandro could be replaced with the German Georg Grozer from Belogorie Belgorod, Russia. This means that Leal would be replaced with a domestic player. The option No.2 for Cruzeiro is to move Simón to the opposite position (which he successfully played in Korea) and to hire American Taylor Sander from Lube instead of Leal.

No matter if Grozer or Sander arrive, there will be no more room in the squad the Argentinean setter Nicolás Uriarte due to a maximum number of foreign players. Cruzeiro management, allegedly, projected Fernando Kreling „Cachopa“ to be a starting setter (a backup for Uriarte at the moment), while the experienced Sandro Carvalho from Montes Claros Vôlei would be his backup.

Let’s not forget that Cruzeiro aim to hire Diatec Trentino (Italy) middle blocker Éder Carbonera!

It is going to be a hot summer for Cruzeiro fans...

Will Lube win battle for Simón? Cruzeiro refuse high-priced offer from SupeLega runners-up!

Re: @Axe
I disagree. These players are worth it and the league may well become the strongest again in the world as it should be. The men's game is so much better than the women's game today and people need to respect that. Reply

ITA M: Perugia find replacement for Zaytsev – Trentino icon Lanza signs!

So Wrong. Trentino will compete for the top 3 spots in A1. Russell is a massive pickup for them. Very smart and consistent organization.

All the pressure is on Perugia with its investments. Reply
