As newly elected President of the Italian Volleyball Federation (FIPAV) Bruno Cattaneo stated a few days ago, Blengini enjoys his trust and only details separate young expert from signing new deal. But, as Gian Luca Pasini wrote in his Blog, the situation had complicated a bit and Blengini probably won’t extend with FIPAV!

The reason might be the lucrative new three-year contract that Blengini’s current club Cucine Lube Civitanova offered him, which FIPAV cannot level. FIPAV proposed Blengini a 2+2 deal which is actually a two-year contract. Another important thing is that new FIPAV establishment will no longer allow dual role.
