The roster of the Brazilian Men’s Volleyball giants Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei for the 2019/20 season is taking shape with the arrival of a new middle blocker.

 

The middle blocker Otávio Pinto, one of the highlights of the 2018/19 Brazilian Championship, will wear the jersey of Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei next season, coming to play for the club based in the city where he was born – Contagem. A 28-year-old player has just won Superliga with EMS Taubaté Funvic, eliminating Cruzeiro in the playoff semifinals. Two years ago, he won the Brazilian Cup with Taubaté and FIVB U23 World Championship with Brazil national team.

Earlier, Cruzeiro confirmed signing Lucas Provenzano “Lukinha” from Vôlei Renata. A 32-year-old player was named Best Libero of the Austrian Championship twice while defending the colors of Hypo Tirol AlpenVolleys Haching (won three national titles with the club).

Recall other transfer activities of Cruzeiro so far.

I don't like the comment that Balkestein-Grothues underperformed! We all know she is there to receive and defend. As you said: 0 aces for Brazil, so she did a great job! Aswell did Schoot, who was almost perfect in receive and defence! Reply

Because the VNL consists of teams that have been invited by the FIVB, rather than have truly qualified for it based on competitive criteria. These teams (e.g. Belgium & Slovenia with the men) would unjustifiedly lose a lot of points on the ranking because they didn't pay the FIVB enough to participate. on the other hand weak teams like South Korea would see their ranking go up just purely by participating.

In its current format the VNL is nothing but a worthless demonstration tournament of friendly games... :-(
