Sir Safety Conad Perugia secured two signings for the next season, both coming from the players who are already the part of the roster.




Aleksandar Atanasijević and Marko Podraščanin, the Serbia men’s volleyball national team duo, extended their contracts with Perugia for two more seasons each, Sportski žurnal reported.

A 26-year-old opposite Aleksandar Atanasijević is the member of Perugia for the fourth straight year. He is the best scorer of his team this season and also the fourth best scorer in an Italian championship SuperLega UnipolSai (392 points). He scored most points in average per game in December.

As for a 30-year-old middle blocker Marko Podraščanin, the club’s best blocker in 2017/18 and No.7 in the league in this segment (49 kill blocks), this is his second season in Perugia. His best performances in blocking in SuperLega this season were against Vibo Valentia and Monza.

Both players confirmed extending contracts with an Italian side.

“When it comes to the contract extension, it’s true. Both Atanasijević and I will stay in Perugia for, at least, two more seasons each. Since the moment I came here, everything has been working in the best possible way. The club is on the rise in terms of organization and results, with great players and fans around us,” Podraščanin stated for Sportski žurnal.

“I already feel like a local player and I’m glad the club decided to offer me a new two-year contract. The ambitions grow, so does the pressure, but you can’t play at a high level without having that. So, I’m looking forward to the finish of the season and, if we win the title, everything will be much easier in the next two seasons,” Atanasijević said.

The fans of Perugia now eagerly wait for the news regarding the arrival of the Cuban superstar Wilfredo León.
