Italy Men’s Volleyball National Team might get reinforcement for the 2020 Olympic Games in Tokyo.


Gian Luca Pasini wrote in his blog that Jiří Kovář might return to Italy National Team after nearly five years.

The Czech-born has been having many problems regarding his career since 2018 that included a doping affair and injury and hasn’t been summoned to play for the “Azzurri“ since the 2014 FIVB World Championship. However, the head coach of Italy Men, Gianlorenzo Blengini, plans to call Kovář for the preparations for the Tokyo Olympics next year. After all, Blengini is well-acquainted with the abilities of the 30-year-old outside hitter knowing that he worked with him in Cucine Lube Civitanova, for which Kovář is still playing, from 2015 to 2017.

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
