Roberto Piazza (coach Sisley Belluno): “First of all I’d like to say a word on Vigor Bovolenta, who gave everything for volleyball. It’s a huge loss for all of us. As for the game, we proved the Trento loss was just a one off and that we’re well alive and kicking. I said to the boys I’d love to earn this fourth place ourselves without waiting for the results of the other courts. They did a great job against one of the top teams of this league. Now with the help of the great Belluno fans, we can do well in the playoffs quarter-finals. We are hungry for more”.
Jean Francois Exiga (Lube Banca Marche Macerata): “We did not play our best volleyball, Belluno was better than us today. We only did well in flashes and they deservedly won. We struggled against their good dig-block organization. In the last two weeks we increased the load of work in the gym to be at our best for the playoffs and we might have paid the price today. Now we have to focus on defending the second position but to do so we’ll have to play better than that”.
