Andrea Gardini will serve as the head coach of the Italian Men’s Volleyball team Gas Sales Piacenza next season.


 

Gas Sales Piacenza have returned to the Italian top division after one season and it seems they will have high ambitions next season. A new head coach of the one-time national champions, Cup and Super Cup winners, and CEV Cup winners is Andrea Gardini. A 53-year-old expert had a great season in Poland, winning the championship with ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle.

Thus, Gardini will return to the club in which he finished his active career (2003/04) that was more than successful: as the middle blocker of Italy national team he was a winner of the FIVB World Championship three times, CEV EuroVolley one time and FIVB World League six times.

Piacenza were promoted to SuperLega after beating Olimpia Bergamo in the series of the 2018/19 Division 2 (Serie A2 Credem Banca) playoff finals by a 3-0. A head coach that led the club last season, Massimo Botti, will become Gardini's assistant in the 2019/20.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
