ITA M: Alessandro Farina selling cheese!

7830 0

Six-time champion of Italy, Alessandro Farina now sells salami and cheese.

 

This summer Farina retired at age of 38, after two seasons spent in Vibo Valentia. With his wife Elena he opened the store on wheels:

It was a life choice. I do not regret at all because volleyball gave me so much but now I have a family and I wanted to spend more time with them

Until a few months ago Farina was one of the strongest “defenders”in the Italian volleyball. He won six titles in Serie A1 with Sisley Treviso, four Italian Cup, three Champions League and many other CEV trophies. He played 609 matches for Sisley in 14th seasons.

CEV awards unprecedented prize money for 2019 Champions League winners

Re: @Youshen
Probably because the final consisted of only two teams, so a dream team wouldn't really be representative of the champions league and a bit unnecessary, but that's just my opinion :) Reply
