The 2018/19 French Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff quarterfinalists Poitiers are close to completely assemble their roster for the next season.


Poitiers gained one of the biggest world volleyball prospects at the moment, Micah Ma’a. A 22-year-old American player, currently competing in the 2019 FIVB Nations League with his country’s national team, has chosen the French Championship side to be the first club in his professional career. Ma’a, who can cover two positions that have nothing in common – setter’s and outside hitter’s – competed in the NCAA for the UCLA Bruins, a team at whose helm is the USA Men head coach John Speraw.

Earlier, Poitiers signed outside hitters - Florian Lacassie (SWD Powervolleys Düren, Germany) and Brazilian Chizoba Neves Atu (Pärnu VK, Estonia), and middle blockers - Iranian Ali Shafiei (Saipa Tehran, Iran) and Brazilian Gladstone Magalhães (G.A.S. Pamvochaikos, Greece).

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Whether Leal deserved MVP award or not that is a different discussion. Don't take me wrong, he is a great player. But I am not sure how Bruno got the idea that he has the right to bypass the FIVB process and voting committee and give award he was given to someone else. This is a scandal and he should be punished for this behavior. Reply

CWCH 2019 M: Bruninho refuses to receive MVP award and hands it to Leal (VIDEO)!

Perhaps what will most be remembered is how Leal was snubbed of an award he rightly deserved. That was shameful. No idea why the prejudice against such a deserving player. Lube would not have w on this without Leal. Reply
