The reigning champions of Chinese Men’s Volleyball league, Shanghai, found themselves foreigners in Italy.

 

Shanghai, who won the 2018/19 Chinese Championship, reinforced their roster for the next season with an Italian opposite hitter and Slovenian outside hitter, volleyball.it revealed. Both players competed in Italy last season but in a different level of competition.

A former Italy national team opposite hitter Giulio Sabbi will, actually, return to Shanghai for the second time. On both previous occasions (2015/16 and 2018/19), he claimed the national title in China. And last season, after lifting the trophy, he moved to Gas Sales Piacenza, helping the team to win promotion to the top division in Italy.

Tine Urnaut is the other foreigner to come to Shanghai for the 2019/20. A few days ago, the Slovenian player parted ways with Azimut Leo Shoes Modena and now took advantage of technical and tactical cooperation that his former club established with Shanghai. Urnaut will replace his compatriot Klemen Čebulj, who moved to Itas Trentino, in the club.

RUS W: Karpol enters Guinness World Records!

Watching Nikolay Karpol and Yevgeni Trefilov (handball, head coach of the Russia women's national team) during the timeouts always made me feel sorry for these girls and was amusing at the same time. They both created the stereotypical image of a typical Russian coach – a big guy, always unsatisfied and yelling at everyone :) Still they both achieved a lot and it cannot be denied. Reply
