The 2018/19 Italian Men’s Volleyball Championship playoff semifinalists Itas Trentino made huge transfer success – the contract extension with their captain Simone Giannelli!

 

Trentino have reached an agreement for the contract extension with their captain and setter Giannelli. Probably the greatest talent that was produced in Trentino youth sector will wear their jersey, at least, until 2023, continuing his already extraordinary career in the club that has discovered him and made him its own symbol.

A 22-year-old Giannelli is the only player in Trentino to win eight league titles between the youth sector and the first team and, in fact, the youngest player ever who made SuperLega debut and has worn the captain’s armband as a member of Trentino. So far, Giannelli made 243 appearances for the club from the Alto Adige region.

In addition to winning two national championship titles with Trentino, Giannelli claimed the 2018 FIVB Club World Championship and was named MVP of SuperLega and Best Setter of the CEV Champions League one time each, and Best Setter of the FIVB Club World Championship two times. While defending the colors of Italy national team, Giannelli was named Best Setter of the CEV European Championship, FIVB World League, and FIVB World Grand Champions Cup one time each.

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Many Strength and Conditioning Coaches/Scoutman are trying to get into coaching. Due to their lack of experience and knowledge, at first, they take a major pay cut in comparison to actual volleyball coaches. Currently, coaching jobs are paying very little, even in the top leagues, and some of the experienced coaches are not taking jobs for 25.000-40.000 EUR, knowing that demands are just as high as before when they were making double of this salary. Unfortunately, club leaderships see coaches as a disposable matter and therefore keep dropping salaries because there are candidates that will take these jobs. I am not here to judge, just to describe some of the dynamics around this profession. Reply

POL M: Young Australian coach Reynolds will command Jastrzębski next season

Interesting trend, that some coaches who specialised on physical training, some who never played volleyball on top level, became pretty successful volleyball coaches. It can be observed in some menś and women teams. It reflects a situation that volleyball has become a very physical sport. Even the world champion country, which in past had taught others, needs coaches from abroad who come into this category. Reply
