Serbian middle blocker Aleksandar Okolić is a new player of an Italian men’s volleyball team Allianz Milano.


Although the official announcement on the transfer is still missing, Milano head coach Roberto Piazza has confirmed it – Serbian middle blocker Okolić has strengthened the team.

“The arrival of Okolić will allow me to facilitate the work of some players like Clévenot and even Kozamernik, who have taken on heavier tasks and begin to feel some physical consequences,” Piazza stated.

However, the 26-year-old player will only compete in the CEV Challenge Cup because his presence in SuperLega would make rotation options to Piazza very difficult knowing the regulation of a limited number of foreigners in the lineup. The arrival of one-time European champion (2019) and World League winner (2016) Okolić coincided with the cardiac problems that middle blocker Aimone Alletti has and due to which will be sidelined for a while. Okolić wore the jersey of the Greek side P.A.O.K. last season.

By Mark Lebedew: The Best Player You Might Have Heard Of...but have probably forgotten

Older video, records and analyses, editing, research by Mark Lebedew are very interesting. I take his work as priceless.. No one else do such a work...He provides us with many volleyball jewels, observations.. In past we often could not see many top tournaments, or matches on TV ….There was no Internet, no YT. Only very limited TV ... We often did not know the background, problems on some tournaments - see e.g. what happened during Italy vs Netherlands OG 1992, on M.L. YT channel, and how it had influenced a final with Brazil..
In time of pandemic, we can take a lesson from some former activities on courts . In past there was a much more decent behaviour during matches, avoiding useless personal contacts , no so and such intimacy as nowadays, no expressive shouting as is a current rule after killing spike or blocks, ourts... Only at the end of the match, tournaments emotions were same as now... (Now we see on 75 and more the useless, risky, ritual teamś hugging per a match) .. Moreover until 1998, volleyball was for TV fans very friendly - due to of a perfect visible. recognizable white ball. Since this time, the screen fans eyes suffer - volleyball has become a pantomime on screens.
Moreover the game was much more smoothly - no so many and so long interruptions as nowadays.. Majority of referees had a respect..
I suppose, if volleyball wants to survive this pandemic crisis, it will have to return to some above mentioned procedures.. Systematically...
