The Italian women’s volleyball side Golden Tulip VolAlto 2.0 Caserta engaged the China National Team player.


Zheng Yixin came to the club fighting to avoid relegation in Serie A directly from China.

The middle blocker spent the first part of the season in Guangdong, finishing 4th in the Chinese Championship. The 24-year-old player won the gold medal with the country’s U20 national team in the 2013 FIVB World Championship. Two years later, Yixin took the gold medal in the Asian U23 Championship. With the senior national team, she claimed the title in the Asian Volleyball Cup twice (2016, 2018) and in the 2017 FIVB World Grand Champions Cup.

Caserta found themselves in the middle of a scandal for letting go of nearly half of the squad, mostly foreigners, and played the first couple of matches in 2020 with several youth team members instead of them.

ITALIAN CUP M: Verona and Piacenza disappoint once again

Piacenza will not have a good year with Hierrezuelo setting. He arrived unprepared and cannot set the front pin hitters and bic at all. Cleverly and Russell have no idea where those sets are going to be. The libero Scanferla is young and the staff is asking him to pass too much of the court.
Gardini is not leading this team in the right direction. Look for another setter quickly. Heck try Shaw there at this point.
Talent is wasting here.
