Matheus Motzo with Santa Croce

The top scorer of the last two seasons of A2 Credem Banca will wear the red and white shirt next season. He is Matheus Motzo, an Italian of Brazilian origins, born in 1999. Role: opposite. Adding up what he achieved in 2020-21 and 2021-22, Motzo scored 922 points in 45 games played (in second place we find a “certain” Walla Souza with 899). Excellent performance rankings also in the winning attacks and in the point-beats (third overall in the two-year period behind absolute tops such as Michele Fedrizzi and Padura Diaz). The Santacrocese public will certainly remember him for the monstrous performance offered to Pala Parenti in the first leg match between Kemas Lamipel and Libertas: 34 points, of which 6 winning blocks and 3 aces. A real bomber, not very tall (192 cm) but with an extraordinary elevation and great technique. Motzo’s career began with a call to Club Italia at the age of 16. He remains in Rome until 2019, closing with the blue representative in A2 and taking home a silver medal, as a protagonist, at the Under 21 world championships. In 2019 he arrives in Cantù: three consecutive seasons in the category, the first as a spiker receiving, the last two from opposite. This is a high-level profile: future-proof but also ready to immediately offer an adequate return to an ambitious square like that of Santa Croce sull’Arno.
