The reigning Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship titleholders EMS Taubaté Funvic signed two Rio Olympics champions!

 

After three years, the outside hitter Felipe Fonteles “Lipe“ is back to Taubaté. A 34-year-old player left SESI-SP and closed a one-year contract with the current Superliga champions to replace the Argentinean Facundo Conte (left to Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei). He will have fierce competition for the Taubaté line-up next season knowing that two starters from the 2018/19 remained in the club – Ricardo Lucarelli and Douglas Souza. Last time he defended the colors of Taubaté, Lipe won the two São Paulo state titles (2014 and 2015) and one in the Brazilian Cup (2015).

Another Rio Olympics champion strengthened Taubaté - Maurício Souza. A 30-year-old middle blocker also returned to the club whose jersey he has worn in the 2014/15 season and won the 2014 Paulista Championship. He came to replace Otávio Pinto who moved to Sada Cruzeiro Vôlei.

Earlier, Taubaté extended with outside hitters Douglas Souza and Ricardo Lucarelli and libero Thales Hoss. They signed Moroccan opposite hitter Mohamed Al Hachdadi (Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia, Italy), setter Eduardo Carísio and libero Rogério Filho “Rogerinho“ (both from Fiat/Minas), outside hitter Renan Bonora (Vôlei Renata), and middle blocker Pétrus Silva (São Francisco Saúde/Vôlei Ribeirão).

Leandro Vissotto and Aboubacar Neto “Abouba“ are close to leaving the club, while these players already left: Argentinean Nicolás Uriarte, Robson Augusto “Robinho“, and Aldren Brand.

TUR W: Guidetti addresses managers and families of EuroVolley U16 winners with request

I am not sure why coach Guidetti would say that. That's their livelihood they are playing at. National pride only lasts a short time then it's back to work playing for a living. Vakifbank is a perfect example of paying big $$ for top players. Do they play for pride? Get real. Motivation is always money. Reply

ECH U16 W: Turkey outplay defending champions Italy to win gold medal

RUS W: Despite renewing with Dinamo Moscow, Ognjenović will join VakıfBank

Wow! Ognjenović had some heated clashes with the Vakifbank coach on court while she was playing for EcZ. I have seen in one video that she was screaming at him. Ognjenović is fiery and the captain of the National Serbia team and is considered one of the best setters (and smart) in the world. I like this move. The current setter for Vakifbank makes bad decisions(and poor sets) at bad times that caused them. Reply
