Jonas Aguenier in the middle for Pool Libertas Cantù

A Frenchman in the shadow of the bell tower of San Paolo. Jonas Aguenier comes from Verona Volley, who has won a lot in his career at home and with the transalpine national team. The middle blocker is an expert player, and will be able to make an important contribution to the Canturina cause.

“The arrival of Aguenier is the classic icing on the cake – comments Coach Francesco Denora -, it brings us a lot of experience and a great technical background. Personally, I like the changeover especially with an important game in the middle of the net, and he was just what we needed. Plus, it has a great wall presence and important service. Thanks to the latter, we become a truly formidable team in service. In addition, with his international experience he will help us a lot to grow as a group “.

“I had the opportunity to stay for my fourth year in Verona – confesses the French central -, but, in agreement with the club, I made the decision to leave this team. I received proposals from many teams, especially in France, but I wanted to stay in Italy to stay close to my wife. My agent gave me some options, but the choice was easy, especially after hearing from my ex-partner Ottaviani (they played with Monini Spoleto, ed). I’ve already talked to the manager too, and we got along well, so I’m very happy with my choice. Cantù, then, is a historic company, which works very well and is serious, and that’s what I need “.

“The last time I played in Serie A2 there were two groups – he remembers -, and what I find is a very different category. Honestly, I don’t know what to expect: Ravenna and Vibo will want to return to the Superlega immediately, but the other historic teams like Bergamo and Cuneo will certainly not stand by and watch. My goal is to grab the Play-Offs: it is since I arrived in Italy that I have heard that against strong teams it is impossible to win, but from my experience in France I have learned that anything is possible. In fact, we won against all odds, even though we were not first in the standings at the end of the regular season. I like being in a well-built team, which has no obligation to win, nor the underdogs, but which does not set limits ”.
