Source: sporting.pt

The ambitious project of the Portuguese men’s volleyball club Sporting CP, who was renewed after 22 years last summer, will move to a higher level next season.

 

After composing a roster filled with prominent names of the world volleyball such as Cuban Ángel Dennis and Colombian Liberman Agámez in the 2017/18, Sporting CP tend to do the same for the next season in which they will try to defend the national title and qualify to the pool stage of the CEV Champions League.

The Lisbon team have engaged a famous Cuban outside hitter Leonel Marshall! A 38-year-old player, who defected from Cuba in 2000, has spent the most of his professional career in Italy. It includes the last two seasons in which he wore the jersey of Wixo LPR Piacenza. Marshall won Italian championship once, Turkish championship twice, Turkish cup and Super cup once each. Internationally, he won the CEV Cup and CEV Challenge Cup once each. He was awarded CEV Cup and Turkish league MVP.

In addition to Marshall, Sporting tied Spanish setter Guillermo Hernán (Tours Volley-Ball, France), Bulgaria national team captain Todor Aleksiev (Olympiacos S.F.P., Greece), Cape Verdean middle blocker Hélio Sanches and outside hitter Roberto Reis (both SC Espinho).

The club extended with libero Hugo Ribeiro, middle blocker Fabrício Silva „Kibinho“ and captain Miguel Maia, while the Brazilian Robson Gomes „Robinho“ (EMS Taubaté Funvic, Brazil), the above-mentioned Liberman Agámez (Seoul Woori Card Wibee, South Korea), and Australian Luke Smith (Afyon Bld. Yüntaş, Turkey) will no longer wear the jersey of Sporting.

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
