The multiple Brazilian Men’s Volleyball champions Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei announced the contract renewal with the head coach Marcelo Méndez.

 

A 54-year-old Méndez, who started to work with Cruzeiro in 2009, will coach the team for the 11th season as he renewed the contract until 2021. The Argentinean expert, who has one of the longest-running jobs in the professional volleyball worldwide, won all major titles with Cruzeiro, such as the FIVB Club World Championship three times, Brazilian Championship and South American Championship six times each, Brazilian Cup four times, Brazilian Super Cup three times and many more. In total - 34 trophies!

Cruzeiro also contracted Canada national team captain John Gordon Perrin. A 29-year-old outside hitter came to the club after a season with Belogorie Belgorod in Russia. Perrin was a one-time Olympian (2016 Rio de Janeiro) and a two-time Turkish Championship winner (Arkas Spor).

In addition to Perrin, Cruzeiro brought in a 39-year-old setter Rodrigo Leme “Rodriguinho” from Vôlei UM Itapetininga and confirmed a stay of seven players from the 2018/19 roster: Isac Santos, Evandro Guerra, Filipe Ferraz, Rodrigo Leão “Rodriguinho”, Fernando Kreling “Cachopa”, Luan Weber and Lucas Bauer.

After nine years, Cruzeiro parted ways with libero Sérgio Nogueira “Serginho”. Since he came to the Contagem team practically at the same time as Méndez, a 40-year-old player won the exact number of trophies with Cruzeiro as his head coach - 34. The name of a new club of Serginho is still unknown.

Earlier, Cruzeiro said goodbye to a foreign duo Sander – Le Roux.

FIVB, change the rule, please!

Re: @Sorah
That is very stupid too, indeed. If we do a simple analysis we can find a lot of other very stupid things. Another one is uselessly continuing the set when the score difference is 10 points. Who has recovered from that? (I mean in the senior games, not in the underage games.)

Re: @Sorin Acela
The most stupid rule is each set has 25 points and teams only play serious game from point 15-16.
If sets had 15 or 11 points, they cared from first point, and didn't cause spectators to sleep. Reply

Volleyball has gathered stupid aspects because it is ruled by stupid people like Oldman Graca and Oldman Boričić! Then you have other silly people like this guy. By far the most stupid thing in volleyball is hugging twice a minute. That has to change, that has to be forbidden. Multiple other aspects have to change, but no one is interested in improving volleyball. I sent much more interesting proposals to people in the high hierarchy of volleyball, but no one cared. Some of those morons can't even read an email! While world volleyball is ruled by stupid careless morons, it continue the road towards dying, with most games having 100-300 spectators. This blog is also uninterested in the improvement of volleyball. Reply
