The Portuguese men’s volleyball championship I Divisão winners Sporting CP extended the deal with the Cuban veteran Ángel Dennis.


A 41-year-old Ángel Dennis decided to commit himself to Sporting CP for one more season.

The Cuban-born opposite, who won titles in Italy more than two decades ago, was one of the most deserving players for the championship trophy which Sporting lifted in the 2017/18 after 24 years!

After winning the 1998 FIVB World League, two NORCECA Championships and one FIVB Grand Champions Cup with Cuba national team, Dennis defected from his home country in 2001 and continued competing two years later in Italy. His biggest club successes were made with Cucine Lube Civitanova – SuperLega title, national Super cup and CEV Cup, all in the 2005/06. Dennis obtained Italian citizenship in the following years and briefly played for Italy national team.

In addition to Cuban veteran, Sporting hired Canadian middle blocker Andre Brown. A 27-year-old player came to Lisbon club from the German Bundesliga side WWK Volleys Herrsching.

Re: @Trem
'I do not know any Italian volleyball athlete that came to Turkey at her peak.'

ok let me give u one example: lucia bosetti,ITA national.most paid player in italian league in 2017-2018.

she played in fener betw 2014-2016 at her peak (at the age of 24)


'Egonu will never ever play in Turkey...2 reasons she is great athlete and she is interesting and provocative'

salaries offered by. istanbul clubs are also interesting and provocative. :D italian clubs are like grocery shops when campared to them. :D

have u ever wondered why superstars like KimYK,Zting,boskovic never ever played in Italy?

while egonu earned 150K in novara, zhu earned 10 X 150K (1,5 M)

btw, turkish people hasnt got any LGBT-hatred , but on the other hand no club manager want any girl in the team to be raped by our interesting and provocative star. :D (just joking) :D Reply

Re: @just thinking

Oh no, poor Poland. I bet everyone is thrilled to play against Leon in their national team. Or against Leal or Juantorena. All much better than Vargas, who doesn't even seem to have a proper spot in Serbian team.

I'm against all that crap, but if everyone else is already doing it... Reply
