The icon of the Italian women’s volleyball, Francesca Piccinini, ended her professional career.


The legendary Italian outside hitter Piccinini, who has 503 appearances for the national team, decided to retire. She returned to the court in January 2020 after announcing her first retirement from volleyball. Now, at the age of 42, Piccinini decided that’s it when it comes to professional playing, meaning Unet E-Work Busto Arsizio was her last club.

In her career, she has won 5 Serie A titles, 4 Italian Cups, 7 CEV Champions Leagues (2-time MVP), the historic world gold with the national team (in Berlin in 2002), and 2 titles of European champion.

TUR W: Thai star Ajcharaporn continues career in Turkey

Re: @Nobody Cares She's 26 and her dream to come play in Europe stopped in a 12-placed team??? Ajcharaporn could have had many other better choices, even to play in a European Cup in a Romanian team. Her agency is so incompetent! Now she'll play against relegation :( So sad!
