Sir Safety Conad Perugia seem unstoppable in the 2019/20 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship regular season.


Sir Safety Conad Perugia scored the sixth consecutive victory in the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season. The last one, for now, came in the big derby against Itas Trentino in and advanced match of Round 13: 3-1 (25-21, 20-25, 25-19, 25-23). The game has heated up in the fourth set when there were a couple of potentially exploding situations on the court. First, León and Vettori stared down at each other and then the same situation happened between León and Čebulj after Trentino’s block on the Cuban-born player.

Lorenzetti’s guys are really struggling lately as they suffered as many as the third defeat in the last four matches. Perugia came in second with 9-2 and 25 points. Serbian Aleksandar Atanasijević and Wilfredo León led Perugia with 26 and 23 points, respectively. Atanasijević’s compatriot Uroš Kovačević tallied 15 points for Trentino, while Slovenian Klemen Čebulj made 81% reception (16 digs, 44% perfect).

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
