The Italian Volleyball Championship side Calzedonia Verona announced that they have reached an agreement with the U.S. Men’s National Team member Garrett Muagututia for the current season.

 

This summer, the 31-year-old Muagututia competed in the FIVB Volleyball Nations League, in which he won the silver medal, and in the FIVB Intercontinental Qualifier, in which he helped his team earn a promotion to the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo. The outside hitter came to Verona from the Greek vice-champions P.A.O.K. 

Muagututia came as a replacement for his compatriot Thomas Jaeschke who dislocated his right shoulder in the 2019 FIVB World Cup match between the USA and Poland and will be sidelined for a long time. This will be the second season in a row which Jaeschke will not start from the beginning. Actually, he missed out entire last season after injuring his left knee in the 2018 FIVB Nations League.

Verona will not be Muagututia’s first experience in Italy, but will be his first experience in the Italian top division. He played in Sieco Service Ortona in the 2012/13 season, in which the club competed in the second division.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

has serbia ever had a 3rd team?:D
serbia began all vnl and former grand prix tournaments with a-teams. they have 3 recent g. prix bronzes. In 2018 vnl, again they began with boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic, popovic, rasic etc. went to finals in china but lost against turkey and usa and went home.In 2019 vnl again they began with top guns boskovic, mikailovic,veljkovic etc. in 1st week. actually their rivals, the turks again,came with their 2nd team ie. without veterans but with youngsters ozbay,karakurt, gunes,baladin etc. and swept serbs by 3-0 and this match had to disappoint terzic too much and he continued vnl with bench players and lost almost all remaining games. videos are everywhere in youtube, just watch them.

for better rankings, you need to compete in all tournaments, but unfortunately only great countries like china, usa with great human resources, great capacities can afford it.

or despite winning 'big' tournaments,you must be contented with your 6th position, because only the points you won do matter. Reply

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.
