Current champions of the South Korean Men’s Volleyball Championship, Cheonan Hyundai Capital Skywalkers, changed a foreign player after nine games in the new season.

 

The V-League champions Skywalkers will no longer count on Cuban outside hitter Yosvany Hernández. He injured his ankle one week upon the start of the 2019/20 season and did not return to the court afterward. The team from Cheonan did not play well without him, suffering four defeats in nine games.

The Skywalkers’ management decided to react and hired Ugandan sensation Daudi Okello, who has been standing out in the Turkish league since the beginning of the season, leading Spor Toto to the surprising No.1 in the charts of the 2019/20 AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi regular season. The 24-year-old opposite hitter is the top-scorer in points per set (6.29) and third-best scorer overall (107 points).

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
