Despite the salary cut, the reigning CEV Men’s Volleyball Champions League and FIVB Club World Championship winners, Cucine Lube Civitanova, won’t lose their biggest stars.


Precisely one year after winning the last Italian Championship title, Lube announced that two major stars of the club, Yoandy Leal and Robertlandy Simón, will stay with them despite the salary cut that was imposed by the management of the Civitanova team. Lube Sporting Director Giuseppe Cormio was the one to deliver this great news to the fans of the reigning European and world champions. He confirmed that the contract renewals Lube made with Cuba-Brazilian Leal and his fellow countryman Simón are still valid.

“Above all, I want to say my thanks to Leal, because his situation was very particular. It was difficult and complicated to think about what he could have done: he did this for us, for Lube. He sent us a very strong signal, I have to thank him. His agents who worked with us. Robertlandy Simón and Yoandy Leal will still be with us next year. We’ll see them on the court in red and white. I hope the matches will be open to the audience again,” Cormio stated.

Recall that recently rumors appeared regarding Leal’s departure from Lube.

ITA M: Serbian Stanković in Modena, won’t compete as foreigner

This is just the proof how long are promises honored in professional volleyball. Last year Lube said that Stankovic, belowed El Capetano, will be coming back next year when he obtain Italian citizenship, he's been with Lube for 10 years, and we want him back. Reply

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply

Sport Bond in Italian Volleyball (Part 1)

This is very similar to 'foundation rights' for football clubs around the world, well except for the US. In football, Jimmy plays for Club X from age 14 to 17. Then he jumps to SuperClub Y for free. Two years at Super Club Y, Giant Massive Club AA comes in and buys his contract from Super Club Y for $10,000,000!

Super Club Y would have to give a portion of the fee to Club X because of Foundation Rights. These rights stay with the player till age 23 (if I remember correctly from my days working in football).

Volleyball has enough issues with budgets and players making money, that there should be hinderance to player movement after age 18 or maybe 21. Just pay the club $10k per season trained or something like that. (Note- this is top of my head thinking and I am not privy to budgets for players).
