This was the long-term goal set by the local management but it was achieved two years ahead of their plans. Though the players have to be given much credit for this, there is a man who also heavily contributed to that success story: Marco Bonitta.
The Italian head coach who was at the helm of the women’s national team when they won gold at the 2002 World Championship in Germany seems to have some special connection with that kind of sensations. Two years ago he steered Italy’s U20 men’s national team to a European title in Gdynia, Poland and now is about to embark on another adventure, leading the women’s senior squad at the upcoming home World Championship.
“I am really happy with leaving the team by the time it returns to compete in the European Cups,” said Bonitta after the 3-2 victory over CUNEO. “We did something really big in these Playoffs which compensates for the ups and downs we have gone through during the regular season.”
