The 2018/19 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Itas Trentino made huge transfer success – the contract extension with their captain Simone Giannelli!

 

Trentino have reached an agreement for the contract extension with their captain and setter Giannelli. Probably the greatest talent that was produced in Trentino youth sector will wear their jersey, at least, until 2023, continuing his already extraordinary career in the club that has discovered him and made him its own symbol.

A 22-year-old Giannelli is the only player in Trentino to win eight league titles between the youth sector and the first team and, in fact, the youngest player ever who made SuperLega debut and has worn the captain’s armband as a member of Trentino. So far, Giannelli made 243 appearances for the club from the Alto Adige region.

In addition to winning two national championship titles with Trentino, Giannelli claimed the 2018 FIVB Club World Championship and was named MVP of SuperLega and Best Setter of the CEV Champions League one time each, and Best Setter of the FIVB Club World Championship two times. While defending the colors of Italy national team, Giannelli was named Best Setter of the CEV European Championship, FIVB World League, and FIVB World Grand Champions Cup one time each.

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

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
