Italian women’s volleyball club Saugella Monza won the 2nd-ever European trophy in its history.


Italy’s Saugella Monza conquered the 2021 Women’s CEV Cup, downing Turkey’s Galatasaray HDI İstanbul in the rematch of the final, too. Thus, they won the 2nd European title in the club history (2019 CEV Challenge Cup).

The team coached by Marco Gaspari needed to take 2 sets (3-0 in the 1st leg at home) to win the trophy in the European club competition’s second-tier and they did it in just 45 minutes of play, reaching 2-0 with a great demonstration of quality and strength. Even though Gaspari sent the lineup composed of backups on the court in the continuation of the match, Monza took the next set as well: 3-0 (25-17, 25-19, 25-19).

Belgian Lise van Hecke top-scored the winning side with 10 points, while Anna Danesi set up 4 blocks. Monza setter Alessia Orro was awarded MVP of the final.

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
