Enzo Di Stefano is the new coach of Avimecc Volley Modica. The white and blue management, after a brief confrontation, decided to entrust him with the technical guidance of the first team, promoting him from the role of second he held with Giancarlo D’Amico to first coach of the Modica sextet.

A prudent and considered choice that will allow the team and the management to continue the growth process that began two seasons ago with D’Amico, but of which Enzo Di Stefano was a decisive part as assistant coach.

“From the moment we took note of Giancarlo D’Amico’s needs – explains the president Ezio Aprile – me first of all, but all the management had no doubts in indicating Enzo Di Stefano as his successor. Enzo has been working with us for five years now and we can say that he worked his way up with us, he grew up with us starting from the youth sector and then moving to the first team as a second and growing steadily and continuously in his technical and professional preparation. His “promotion” to head coach was a project that was to take hold in the near future, but due to contingent factors it was only anticipated. When it was decided to bring Giancarlo D’Amico to Modica – he continues – because we knew his professionalism and experience from having also coached in Superlega, one of our objectives was to train our technicians by making them work alongside him to gain experience and mature them and then launch them as main protagonists. For us, this has been a normal process of growth not only in the company and we are very convinced that Enzo Di Stefano can live up to the role we have entrusted him with. Enzo knows the Volley Modica environment very well and we know that the boys he has coached in the past have always given a certain weight to his advice and have always placed their trust in him. When we asked him to coach the first team – concludes Ezio Aprile – he had no doubts and fears in accepting, perhaps realizing that this was in the club’s plans and that this moment for him would come sooner or later”.

The “new” coach of the blue-and-whites is also happy and excited for the “promotion” who will have the task of continuing the work begun two years ago by Giancarlo D’Amico with whom he worked hard side by side for two seasons.
