A few hundred fans came to the promotion of the player who was involved in the world biggest men’s volleyball transfer this summer!

 

The Cuban-born Wilfredo León who will have the right to compete for Poland national team next year was presented by the president Gino Sirci as the new player of defending SuperLega champions Sir Safety Conad Perugia.

The presentation was held in a shopping center Quasar Village and was attended by a few hundred fans among which were children, young, and old people - the presentation worthy of a player of León’s reputation.

“Thanks to everyone! I’m very happy to be here and to be part of a very strong team. I arrive to give 100% of myself and I thank the president and all the sponsors who made all this possible. When I decided to leave Kazan, I also had contacts with Polish and Turkish teams, but I wanted to play in the Italian league and I enthusiastically chose Perugia where many international players compete. I am happy to have the chance to play with them and I think I will technically improve here,” visibly impressed Cuban player stated.

After the official part of the ceremony was over, León was left in the hands of the fans who stood in line to ask for an autograph from the superstar and take a selfie with him.

VNL M: Italy get rude awakening from Australia, Brazil and Poland suffer 3 defeats in a row!

I dont think people understand how affected this Brazilian team was affected by the negative news from their Government on pulling funding from sports teams and athletics in the country. it was a punch in the gut from a country that already is reeling with issues. Bruno was the one who publicly called the government out. Clearly he is affected. Its a darn shame. Reply

VNL M: Italy produce 500th official win, Canada heavily shock Brazil, Iran sweep Poland in tension-filled game

During VLN there is only one team which really surprises the audience in all over the world - Japan. They won over Italy, Germany etc.. Although much smaller players then rest of VNL, they have played very good. Moreover there is a phenomenal talent 18 years, 186 cm, Y. Nishida, an opposite position... Vertical jump cca 100 cm.. In past K.Kiraly, 191 cm, jumped cca 90 cm, was similar dynamic player.. However this time TV audience could enjoy volleyball. The Mikasa white ball OG 1984, 1988 was perfect visible and recognizable.
Unfortunately due to of same firm and a wrong FIVB decision, we can not enjoy these matches now... Volleyball reminds a pantomime - without a slow motion replay is almost not possible to watch volleyball since 1998. Compare with the FIFA World Cup 2018 football ball... Such colors and design should be used also in volleyball... Reply
