Blengini sent the 26-man list of Italy to the FIVB for the inaugural edition of the Nations League that will be reduced to 21 names on May 15.

He didn’t play in the regular season, so this is not a surprise decision.

@brazilvolleygirl Vettori played in the regular season, supercoppa, champions league, italian cup and the playoffs. He just had a bad season in Trentino. Please stop spreading fake news!

Re: @rivers it seems Vettori himself asked not to be called this time.

Vetori did not have a good season. He looks very weak. Italy does not need him as they have the beast called Zaytsev. And they have Sabbi and the promising Nelli.
