Ninth season for Max Cioffi

Coppa Italia Semif Agnelli Tipiesse Conad Reggio Emilia

Max’s “ninth”. A symbol of fidelity to the rossoblù colors is undoubtedly Massimiliano Cioffi. Milanese by birth, now adopted by Bergamo for militancy reasons, he will turn 30 on July 24th. In the last eleven seasons, the only two “detours”, which were decidedly profitable, were in A3 in San Donà and Tuscania (from 2019 to 2021). Experiences that, last summer, gave Agnelli Tipiesse back to an even more reliable player who has carved out his space very well. And he also won his first career trophy, the Super Cup.

“It is almost impressive to think of such a high number of seasons. Yet between Olimpia and Agnelli Tipiesse, my connection with the club and the city has become more solid every day. I am very happy to continue my adventure with coach Graziosi whom I thank for the renewed trust.

Being in the department with Cargioli and Larizza allowed me to work hard and well, making myself ready when opportunities arose. Especially when, unfortunately, Jacopo’s injury arrived. I am satisfied with my performance, although I am aware that this year I will have to do even better. And it will be a pleasure to meet Igor Jovanovic.

My injury came at the worst moment. A suffering not only physically (ankle knocked out), but also because I could not help the team and my teammates in any way in the decisive phase. It will mean that we will keep this competitive anger as credit for the near future. “
