Legendary Cuban player Leonel Marshall signed with the Turkish Men’s Volleyball Championship side Bursa Büyükşehir Belediyesi.


The 40-year-old outside hitter Marshall strengthened the squad of Bursa for the ongoing season in the AXA Sigorta Efeler Ligi. Thus, he returned to play in Turkey after four seasons. Marshall’s last team in this country prior to Bursa was Arkas Spor in the 2014/15 season.

Cuban is well-known for his outstanding vertical jump of 3.83m, which is considered the No.1 of all time and which still doesn’t fade. Marshall, who applied for changing the sports nationality to Italian in 2017, spent the last season in Portugal, playing for Sporting Clube Portugal. Bursa are currently fifth in the Efeler Ligi regular season charts with 5-3 and 14 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
