Argentine national team libero will have his first experience outside his country after playing for Boca Juniors for more than six years. Facundo signed a two year contract with TOULOUSE. WorldofVolley brings you the latest volleyball news.


Facundo Santucci

In the last Argentine Serie A1 season, Santucci was the best in defence and 2nd best receiver with a 60,76% efficiency. Also, he has been called again by Javier Weber to be a part of the World League´s  roster. The 25 years-old player has had a lot of success in the last seasons and now he received the opportunity from Spacers TOULOUSE. Facundo appreciates it, and shares his feelings with us:
How did Spacers TOULOUSE chose you?

They were looking for a libero and my manager Marcus Eloe, negotiated my transfer. They had to talk to other players too, but the coach wanted me to sign as soon as possible..
You had the chance to leave Boca before, why did you do it now?

Yes, there were other opportunities, but they weren’t like this one. I think I’m in my best moment now, mature and experience enough to face the challenge. I Hope I can give back the confidence they gave me.
It’s hard to say goodbye?

It really is, I didn’t realize it at first; but when Boca plays its first match without me, then I’ll understand and that’s gonna hurt. But I’m not saying goodbye, cause I started in Boca and I’m also a big fan. I have the chance to improve my career now but I will miss the squad a lot. I spent many years there, but I’m sure I’ll be back to represent the team because I love winning.
What do you know about TOULOUSE?

I know the goal is to get in the Ligue AM play-offs, and that Andre Radtke is going to be there too. Also Marcus Eloe’s brother is there. Everything is going to be new for me, but I have lot of expectations and hope of this project.
What do you expect?

I want to play a good season, have the confidence of my teammates, improve myself and to be known in Europe; the outside market is important, so I have to do my best.
