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.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

VNL must be an event that helps new players gain experience so that they can later join their country's first team. Serbia has always participated with its 2nd or 3rd team. The big tournaments are the Olympics Games, the World Championships and the continental championships. No one remembers who won the vnl. Ask a player to answer please. All for money fivb!!! Reply

Serbian women had poor results in 2019 vnl (5W-10L) which has cost them to drop the 6th place.

Turkish women had 11W-4L in 2019 vnl. And beat China in final round though later lost to them in semifinal, it's still plus for them because you win more points defeating an opponent above you but lose less points when you are defeated.

FIVB releases new men’s and women’s world rankings

This is more laughable :) In 2017 turkey was the 12th country in old ranking list
behind the 11th argentina.Then the turks played eurovolley 2017 semifinal (took
bronze) and then vnl 2018 final, vnl 2019 semifinal, eurovolley 2019 final and won
the 2020 european olympic qualification tournament. After all of these,they were
still the 12th team behind the 11th argentina.:D:D:D

Of course the new rankings are more realistic and fairer,I think,but plz note they are not to tell which NT is stronger but to reflect potentials of countries by taking all their performances in a time span into account.

Well,serbia,world and european champ,but has no vnl / world cup medal so far,
why,if they are so mighty? Ok , we all know/guess why, but the ranking system don't pay attention why and it shouldn't for a healty evaluation of serbia's potential.

I also accept serbia's ideal line-up is presently the strongest NT,but this issue is something different. Reply
