When he openly expressed a desire to sign Wilfredo León, a year ago, many were sceptical in Italy that Sir Safety Conad Perugia President Gino Sirco will accomplish to do so knowing that Cuban-born is already a well-paid volleyball player who already established himself a star in one of the best clubs in the world – Zenit Kazan. But...


 

Gino Sirci was successful in persuading Wilfredo León, who previously won CEV Champions League four times with Zenit, that the outside hitter can find new challenges in the Italian club. In an interview for Fakt, Sirci explained how he did it.

“Playing for Zenit Kazan, León prevented Perugia twice to win the Champions League. I had to have him. We thought that he would agree to a lower offer than he had in Russia, but we had to offer him the same amount. He told us that it can’t be otherwise. We pay him a lot, but we don’t regret because he is one-third of our team’s strength,“ Perugia President said.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
