The manager of the Cuban-Polish men’s volleyball superstar Wilfredo León revealed some interesting facts regarding his protégé that preceded renewing the contract with Sir Safety Conad Perugia.

 

The Italian vice-champions Perugia recently announced the extension of the contract with León for the next 2 seasons. However, his manager Andrzej Grzyb revealed in an interview for Super Express that it, actually, wasn’t a 2-year deal but 1 + 1 and can be interrupted after the first season under some conditions. He didn’t specify under what conditions, though.

Before signing the new contract with the “Block Devils”, León had offers from 3 Polish clubs and from the Russian Zenit Saint-Petersburg who were ready to provide Cuban-born outside hitter with incomes by a 40% larger than Perugia. Grzyb stated that the choice of León wasn’t determined by money. “Wilfredo made the decision he considered best for himself and his family.” However, the exact sum that Perugia offered to volleyball isn’t known but according to Italian media, he got 1.1 million euros for the year (some published it was up to 1.5 million euros). Grzyb didn’t give the official confirmation on this. “I’m not talking about financial issues.”

IRN M: Iranian federation wants Alekno at helm of men's national team!

'The IRIVF has unofficially set the goal of winning a medal in the next year’s Tokyo Olympics'
It sounds unreal or at least very hard to set as a main target keeping in mind there are teams like Brazil, Poland, USA, Russia or France that are considered better and more entitled than Iran. Just my opinion. Reply

POL M: Wilfredo Leon – “It would be dangerous to play in front of the fans…”

Wilfredo Leon - a big respect for such a statement... Very rare, reasonable and sober opinion in this complicated, pandemic situation.. He thinks on older, and vulnarable persons.... I expect that also other top world athletes, coaches, officials will join such a proclamation... But it is not enough without specifying and keeping complex, preventive, epidemiological measures on volleyball courts, halls ... Better not comment what we could still observe on them.. Reply
