The renewal with one of the best, if not the best female volleyball player in the world at the moment, Paola Egonu for the 2021/22 season was made official by Imoco Volley Conegliano today.

 

Turkey’s Fenerbahçe Opet remained empty-handed. Egonu, who arrived in Imoco in 2019, played 71 games in two seasons, and practically won everything with the Serie A club, has renewed her contract with it.

Interestingly, the only match that the Conegliano side lost in the last two seasons - against Bartoccini Fortinfissi Perugia in December 2019 – was when Egonu was absent. In these two years with Imoco, a 22-year-old opposite hitter has won one Italian Championship, FIVB Club World Championship, and CEV Champions League, as well as two Italian Cups and Super Cups. Egonu was named MVP of the last final of the Italian League, the Champions League, and the Italian Cup, as well as of the final of the last Club World Championship and 2019 Italian Super Cup.

In the season behind us, she broke the record for points in a women's single-match in Italy, which she previously held, by making 47 points. In total, Egonu has collected 1,437 points while wearing the Imoco jersey.

why egonu signed for next season only, instead of a multi-year contract,if she is so happy in imoco.such one year contracts are made when one side, club or athlete,has some hesitation. maybe fenerbahce remained not so empty handed. who knows..

GRE W: Suspended Korean player Lee Da-Yeong going to play in Greece

Excited to see Dayeong venture out to an overseas league to grow as a player! Since the Greece league is weaker than the Korean league, it'll be an opportunity to see if she can step up to the plate to lead her team as a setter, while also showing herself to other leagues for future seasons.

The twins were indefinitely suspended after the accusations made towards them about what they did back during elementary school, but they're currently in the midst of a court investigation process to prove that most of the accusations made against them were false (they acknowledged some of them and had apologized immediately & publicly for those).
Once that is resolved - hopefully soon, she should have no issues going abroad.

Heard rumours that PAOK is also looking for a foreign OH, and is looking at signing her twin sister Jaeyeong together with her as a package.
I sure hope that is true and will come to pass as well! Will be additionally fun seeing them play together, and they can rely on one another in a new foreign environment. Reply

Bless the Thai players. They share much blood, sweat and tears, many tears. They were robbed of an Olympic birth from an incompetent ref that will haunt them for the rest of their life. Reply
