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.

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...
