Miguel Angel Falasca, his coach, decided to protect him and accepted the times of the rehabilitation. In that position he played the first matches of the season, in the period of preparation for Plusliga and European competitions.
The wait was over on the 6th round of Plusliga (18/11), but the magic had a delay until the last days of the month, when Belchatow visited the same rival of Conte’s first match after the injury: Lotos Trefl. The outside hitter was in the initial line up and scored 11 points that rounded a great performance. After the match he was going to express: “After so much time, effort and patience it’s time to be happy again”.
On his second game he was highlighted on reception and his performances where ascending as the matches went by. On his fourth game, only a month before his return, he was awarded as Most Valuable Player and with his presence on the court, Skra didn’t lose any more game.
