The Italian Men’s Volleyball League imposed penalties to four players involved in an incident at the end of Game 3 of the playoff quarterfinals, two days ago.

 

At the end of Game 3 of the 2018/19 SuperLega Credem Banca playoff quarterfinals between Sir Safety Conad Perugia and Vero Volley Monza, the incident occurred while players shook hands at the net.

Santiago Orduna, the Argentine setter from Monza, spit Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević from Perugia. The opposite hitter than tried to physically attack Orduna but was held back by his teammates. For this, Orduna earned an eight-game suspension from SuperLega, which he will do next season, while Atanasijević was suspended for two matches, which means that he will miss Game 1 and Game 2 of the semifinals against Azimut Leo Shoes Modena.

Also, Perugia middle blocker Fabio Ricci got a one-game suspension while another Monza player, the Czech Donovan Džavoronok, earned a two-game ban. Both were punished for involvement in the same incident (video).

NO!!! This is awful news for Perugia!
I wonder what Atanasijevic did to make Orduna spit on him. Modena is in a really good place to take 2 matches.
Bata and Rici are monumental losses. wow

whatever might have happened, Orduna shouldn't have done that. Unless he did intend to provoke Atanasijevic in order to make Perugia weaker. Very unprofessional from both sides

Perugia paid a fine for Ricci, so he's going to be on court, and Atanasijević's suspension has been reduced to one match.

the situation is very similar to zidane in football in the final of the world cup 2006. for me orduna was the worst attitude, you shouldnt provoke the way he did. but Bata has been doing this for years and nothing happened to him. he is one of the players that celebrate in front of the other teams, even sometimes doing very rude manners and nothing happened to him, it was going to come a red card or some suspension. the serbian players has this problems: lisinac is extremely agressive and often gets yellow or red card, both podrastamin and bata keeps making rude gestures to the players on the other side...

They should just make the continental championships this year the Olympic Qualification to reduce the number of useless tournaments. Otherwise, the continental championships are useless because they no longer give world ranking points. Particularly for Asia, where Iran has not finished well since 2013 because they do not care about the tournament and send a weaker team instead of their main team. Reply
