The French men’s volleyball club champions Cannes remained without one of their key players already at the very beginning of the season.
Even before playing their inaugural match in 2021/22, the French Super Cup (which they lost to Chaumont), Cannes remained without one of their key players. Italian international Gabriele Nelli got a herniated disc and is likely to miss a large part of the season.
The Ligue A champions took advantage of the possibility of hiring a medical joker and replaced a 27-year-old opposite hitter with American Jeffrey Menzel. An experienced player came to Cannes from the polish second division club eWinner Gwardia Wrocław. His natural position is the outside hitter.
