After five successful years, the winning synergy between Cucine Lube Civitanova and the free Andrea Marchisio ends. The Piedmontese athlete greets the fans of the Marche region as champion of Italy and is preparing to face a new professional experience with the titles collected in the red and white jersey: three Scudetti won in 2019, 2021 and 2022 (in addition to the tricolor won in Cuneo in 2010), the 2019 Champions League, the Club World Cup of the same year and the two Italian Cups, raised in 2020 and 2021. Indescribable satisfaction also passed through sacrifices and a lot of mental strength, given that “Ciccio” would have played in other teams of high ranking, but has always made himself available to the cause by being ready and reliable as a luxury graft.
Greetings from Andrea Marchisio
“It is not easy to close such a beautiful parenthesis in which I met special people, both in society and in the stands. I thank the fans for the affection received. For me it was very important to create sincere friendships. At 31 the time has come to go back to training with the incentive that on Sunday I will be the protagonist. I do not deny anything about the seasons in red and white, I was aware of the role and with the right mental solidity I gave my best in the gym trying to be prepared when necessary. I have a lot of energy and desire to fight on the pitch. I can’t know how long I’ll play, but I’m looking forward to having fun and reliving the adrenaline of the official matches. There have been many victories for Lube, but there is a moment I am most attached to, Race 5 in Perugia when we overturned a game that seemed haunted at the tie break! After seven losing finals we broke the spell with that success and I felt a strong emotion when Stankovic, captain of Lube at the time, called me to raise the cup. I’m leaving after another very important victory, I’m grateful to my teammates for giving me so many joys! “.
A.S. Volley Lube thanks the athlete for the professionalism shown and wishes Andrea to find the right motivations and show all his talent.
