Dutch National Team player and one of the best middle blockers in the world, Robin de Kruijf, joined preparations of Italian side Imoco Volley Conegliano. When she left Turkish Vakıfbank İstanbul, many clubs wanted to sign her. Among them, Fenerbahçe Grundig İstanbul. But, De Kruijf has chosen Serie A1 champions. This is why…

“I have been to Palaverde two years ago with Piacenza and I liked the gym very much. The atmosphere, the audience, all was very nice, and now I’m very happy to be here in this jersey. When the club contacted me, I checked a bit on its goals, the roster that was forming and I agreed enthusiastically. Conegliano is a very organized club and with serious targets, ideal for me. And then, coming back to Italy is very exciting. I like the league which is, unlike the Turkish league where there are three or four good teams, much more balanced. I like the warmth of the audience on and off the court,” De Kruijf said.
