The two-time CEV Men’s Volleyball Challenge Cup winners Fakel have completed composing the roster for the next season by signing a son of one of the world’s best opposite hitters in the 21st century.


The 22-year-old opposite hitter Dimitriy Yakovlev occupied the last vacant spot in the 2020/21 roster of Russia’s Fakel. He’s a son of a renowned Russian volleyball player Roman Yakovlev (one-time FIVB World League and two-time FIVB World Cup winner), who’s now the assistant coach in Fakel.

Dmitriy is on a good way of building his own successful career given that he was named Best Opposite Hitter of the 2015 FIVB U19 World Championship. He came to the Novy Urengoy team from Dinamo-LO.

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.
