The Brazilian men’s volleyball side EMS Taubaté Funvic confirmed that Ricardo Lucarelli agreed to the transfer to Itas Trentino from Italy.

 

The rumor is confirmed - the 2016 Rio Olympics winner Lucarelli officially left Taubaté. As the supervisor of the Brazilian team, Ricardo Navajas, said for Globo Esporte, the outside hitter agreed to go to Trentino. Lucarelli must report to the Italian team when they resume activities, which is yet unknown given that a decision of the continuation of the SuperLega is on hold due to coronavirus pandemic. In case of the season restart, he’ll help his new team in the playoffs.

“He wanted to go to Europe. He didn’t even want to negotiate to stay. As it was his desire to go to play in Italy, we accepted. He should report there when the crisis ends and the club’s activities resume,” said Navajas, adding that Taubaté haven’t yet started to seek for Lucarelli’s replacement.

The 28-year-old Brazil National Team member Lucarelli was one of the idols of the Taubaté fans. He was hired in 2015 and won several titles with the team, such as the Paulista Championship, the Brazilian Cup, the Super Cup, and most importantly – the 2018/19 Superliga when he was elected the MVP.

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
