He is one of the synonyms for loyalty in the French men’s volleyball, but his professional career came to an end.



After a decade of competing for Spacer’s Toulouse, their captain Diógenes Zagonel “Zago” decided to retire.

A 36-year-old Brazilian outside hitter played his last match in the professional career against Nice Volley in the 2017/18 French men’s championship Ligue A, last weekend, his club published.

“I mostly thank Spacer’s Toulouse volleyball club who welcomed me. I had the honor and pride to defend the colors of this club for 10 years of my life, more than half of my professional career. From the bottom of my heart, I thank all the officials, partners, coaches, medical staff, employees, players, volunteers, the supporters… Thank you, I lived the best moments of my life here, unforgettable moments… A big thank to everyone who contributed to my career, who made me the player that I am and the man I became,” Zago said.

Next season, the Brazilian will assist the head coach Stéphane Sapinart.
