Last year was like a dream come true for an Italian men’s volleyball side of Cucine Lube Civitanova knowing it won several major trophies such as the CEV Champions League, the FIVB Club World Championship, and the national championship.


In an interview for Corriere dello Sport, Lube head coach Ferdinando De Giorgi summarized his team’s ambitions for 2020 and spoke of, practically, the only setback Lube faced in the first half of an ongoing season – the injury of an Iranian international Amir Ghafour who was projected to be the starting opposite hitter. Thus, De Giorgi admitted that the leaders of the 2019/20 SuperLega Credem Banca regular season are looking at the transfer market to solve the problem.

“Objectively, there’s a problem, we can’t pretend there isn’t, and his (Ghafour’s) prolonged absence obliges us to keep the eyes open on the market. But this doesn’t mean taking whatever there is just to plug the hole: what’s obvious is that we are looking around,“ Lube head coach said.

I think this was the best decision for the club. With only having 2 foreigner spots, the setter position was the easier position to let go. I think Lokomotiv will transfer a foreign OPP in place. Reply
