The President of Italian Volleyball Federation, Carlo Magri, has proposed a rather strange solution in the case of Cuban Leonel Marshall. Magri said he will declare LPR Piacenza player Italian, but only for the competitions in Italy. In European competitions, Marshall would play as Cuban.

Of course, if it becomes official, Magri’s decision would have a huge impact on similar cases in Italy and might cause a real volleyball earthquake in the future.
