Italy were so close to win their first ever gold medal at the Olympic Games but Brazil got in their way in Rio finals. Nevertheless, Italian Volleyball Federation considers this a huge success.



Thus, Italian VF has plans to keep head coach Gianlorenzo Blengini at helm of the Men’s national team although Blengini himself still did not say yes on the proposal.

“Blengini said it is not yet the time to talk about it, but I say there are all conditions for Blengini to remain the head coach,” said Italian VF President Carlo Magri.

As it is known, Blengini already has one job as a coach – in Cucine Lube Banca Marche Civitanova.

“Dual role? Sooner or later, his contract will end. We’ll see,” added Magri.
