For the former captain of Italian national team this is not going to be the first experience abroad because in the past she had played in France (Cannes) and Poland (Sopot).

Rinieri has spent last season in Modena and Rovigo and decided to reinforce the team who was relegated from Russian B League and will try to return to the same division in the next season.

Currently, Leningradka is preparing in Italy, in Liguria where they will be next three weeks. The team from Saint Petersburg brought four new players and also the new coach.

Alexandra Polikarpova, Alyona Azarova, Anastasia Burdyukova and Karina Bilalova are newcomers together with the coach Elena Bulgakova who previously coached Stroitel Irkutsk.
