Valentina Diouf became a victim of the vision of Italy Women’s National Team head coach Marco Bonitta but she did not give up on wearing the blue jersey.

Two times in the same year, a 23-year-old the opposite hitter was crossed out from Italy NT roster at the last moment so it was not a surprise when Diouf refused to return to the national team for the Qualifications for the 2017 CEV European Championship.

But, she does not leave room for speculations on her future in Italy NT. Especially because Bonitta’s days on Italy’s bench are numbered.

“I write in capital letters, so that those who use their ‘imagination’ to create non-existent case can understand: I WILL NEVER GIVE UP ON THE BLUE JERSEY! As the current head coach of the national team said, this time I simply preferred to focus on the preparation for the new season. After all, the memory of what I suffered would not ensure the necessary tranquility to face new challenges in the best way. Under my dark skin, there is a royal blue. You must know this…” Diouf wrote on Instagram.
