The Bulgarian outside hitter Elitsa Vasileva will wear the jersey of the current CEV Women’s Volleyball Champions League winners Igor Gorgonzola Novara in the 2019/20 season.

 

The Bulgarian outside hitter, who turned 29 a few days ago, Vasileva is the first arrival to the reigning European champions Novara for the next season. Last season, she spent playing for Savino Del Bene Scandicci, Novara’s rivals in the Italian league. Actually, the season with Scandicci marked Vasileva’s return to competing in Italy, to which she came a first time when she was 17, after six seasons. Bulgaria national team captain won the Italian Championship and Super Cup once (all with Zanetti Bergamo), Turkish Super Cup once (VakıfBank), and CEV Cup once and Russian Championship twice (all with Dinamo Kazan).

A few days earlier, Novara extended the deal with Italy national team captain Cristina Chirichella. An important link in Novara’s road to win the Champions League, a week ago, will stay in the club until 2022 just like the head coach Massimo Barbolini and libero Stefania Sansonna, who renewed prior to Chirichella.

ITA M: Trentino secure signature of 3-time consecutive SuperLega top scorer Abdel-Aziz!

One of the best opposite hitters in the world right now. Trentino will have a hell of the power when it comes to finish the ball but will definetely struggle to receive it. Both Lucarelli and Kooy are easy targets to aim and were usually hidden behind a libero. Still seems like there will be top 3 clubs in Italy next season: Lube, Perugia, Trentino. Modena will be weaker for sure and will struggle to be in the top 6 and Piacenza may make a surprise. Reply

ITA M: Trentino sign newly proclaimed Italy National Team member Kooy

Dick Kooy is a really solid player who has been very consistent in his pro career. Gaining him and Rossini are very very good Italian additions. That being said the loss of Grebennikov, Russell and Kovacevic will be significant.
Ultimately I will cheer for a healthy uninterrupted A1 season....fans or no fans....We need to play volleyball!!! Reply
