After the early elimination in the 2020/21 Brazilian Men’s Volleyball Championship, Sada Cruzeiro started to make moves to assemble the squad for the next season.


Cruzeiro announced on social media that they have signed famous opposite hitter Wallace Souza, who has just won the Turkish Cup with Spor Toto and was MVP of the competition.

A 33-year-old player, one of the greatest idols of the fans of the Belo Horizonte club, has returned to it after 5 years. Wallace arrived in Cruzeiro in 2009 and spent the next 7 years there, accumulating numerous collective (2 FIVB Club World Championships, 4 Brazilian leagues, 3 Brazilian Cups, 3 South American Club Championship, and 6 Mineiro Championships) and individual (one-time FIVB Club World Championship MVP and Best Opposite Spiker and one-time South American Club Championship MVP and Best Opposite Spiker) achievements.

In 2016, Wallace left Cruzeiro due to the ranking of athletes for Superliga that the Brazilian Volleyball Confederation (CBV) introduced for that 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

Unfortunately there is no future for Russell. He is old and after this operation, he cannot recover and remain the same level before :( 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
