The 16-time Slovenian men’s volleyball Championship winners, ACH Volley Ljubljana, hired former Cuba National Team member Ricardo Calvo.


The 23-year-old Calvo will command the attack of Slovenia’s ACH Volley next season.

He was supposed to have a promising career given that he was the starting setter of the Cuba National Team already as a teenager. Calvo was projected to direct their play of the national team at the 2016 Rio Olympics but a month prior to the event, he was arrested for rape in Finland along with several more teammates during the 2016 FIVB Volleyball Nations League.

Due to that, he missed out on seasons 2016/17 and 2017/18. In 2018/19, he wore the jersey of Lebanon’s Zahra. He didn’t compete last season.

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.
