Valentina Diouf has definitely become the “ugly duckling“ of Italian volleyball. For the second time in one year, she was crossed out at the last moment from the Italy women’s volleyball National Team roster by the head coach Marco Bonitta.



This time it was even more painful for her as she was on the list of 12 players for the Olympic Games sent to the FIVB before the last-minute cut.

Diouf has spoken to her fans on this via social media.

I thank everyone who has always supported me and I love you guys, you give me strength. But I thank even more those who try to make this situation, that is already plenty difficult enough, even worse. Youre motivation for me. Every time you say that I’m ’muddled’, slow, backward, falling down (you don’t lack imagination, you’ll think of more adjectives) youre only feeding my desire to get back up,“ Diouf wrote.

Shes angry with Bonitta because of the way she was informed on being erased from the Rio Olympics list.

I received a text message at 8:30 AM yesterday (on the day of leaving for Rio). He (Bonitta) destroyed the great dream of a person playing sports, the dream of a life, with a message. He didn’t have the courage to tell me in person… I was hurt by the way I was left at home. A coach’s duty is to choose who he wants for the good of the team. It’s obvious that not everyone will be happy. But there are different ways to communicate upon making the choice,“ the opposite hitter explained to oasport.it.

Will she turn from an ugly duckling“ into a beautiful swan“ after this as it happened in the fairy tale of Hans Christian Andersen?
