The project of Brazilian women’s volleyball club São Paulo FC/Barueri is at risk for the next season.


Legendary José Roberto Guimarães ‘Zé Roberto’, who occupies posts of the head coach and financier of the club competing in Brazil’s Superliga, São Paulo FC/Barueri, expressed his doubts about the existence of the project at the end of the ongoing season.

A 3-time Olympic champion, on whose initiative Barueri got women’s volleyball club in 2016, is the main sponsor of the team at the moment. Zé Roberto paid all costs of the functioning of the club this season given that sponsor money didn’t come to the club box office at all.

“I can’t take it. I can’t do it. I can’t afford it again. I can’t do this to my family. I can work for free, but I can’t be playing the team. I don’t have the head for it anymore,” said the Brazil Women’s National Team head coach about the next season.

ITA M: Perugia focused on bringing Grbić

He signed a 2-years contract with Zaksa last year. He won Polish Cup with them, not sure what happened so Zaksa lost the championship. They kicked out Lube and Zenit from the Champions League and have a good chance of becoming European champion although Trentino didn't win anything this year so this is their last chance.
He started his coaching career with Perugia so everything is possible... Reply

USA M: Russell undergoes surgery in US, will miss Tokyo Olympics

Russell had one of the best sports surgeons in the world work on him so I expect he will be in great hands. While devastating for any athlete Russell is young enough to have both Paris and Los Angeles in his Olympic future at very high level.
Piacenza is building something very special there and Russell is a perfect type of player and professional to attract others to come there and build around.
Wishing him a full and speedy recovery. Reply
