Dick Kooy has officially become the Italian citizen and now he has Dutch and Italian citizenship. We have already written about his case.

A member of Halkbank has confirmed that he won’t be playing for Dutch national volleyball team as he wants to change sport nationality.

In general, it is good for my life to have Italian sport nationality. One day I will come back to play in italy and If I get Italian sport nationality, I will be able to play as the Italian player in Serie A1” said Kooy for our website a few days ago.

If i good remember, in Italian league it isn’t necessary to leave nt to play as italian player in serie A. Only in Russia is that rule- Zaytsev play as italian, not as russian player.

In the National team there can be only ONE naturalized player! For now that is Juantorena. If he decides to leave the national team after Rio there will be place for another one, there comes Kooy…
