From Parma setter Edoardo Colangelo

Coach Battocchio joins Sottile, for the next Serie A2 season in Cuneo, with setter Edoardo Colangelo.

Born in 2001, raised in the Parma cantera up to A3 last year, as soon as he received the proposal from Cuneo Volleyball, without hesitation he decided to face this first, new, adventure away from home.

« When Cuneo called, I said yes! I didn’t believe it right away, a dream come true, transforming one’s passion, one’s sport into a high-level profession. As soon as I realized it was real, I immediately accepted with great enthusiasm; I think it will be a unique experience. Everyone I’ve ever played with has always spoken highly of Cuneo, I’m very happy with my choice. I heard coach Battocchio by phone, I didn’t know him personally but I have a lot of positive feedback on him, in addition to his results with the Azzurrini. I’m impatient to start the season with the coach and with all my teammates, especially with Sottile from whom I hope to learn a lot.” – the first words, with a touch of emotion, by Edoardo Colangelo.

« I’ve been hearing good things about him for a few years, I followed him more closely last year because he could have been one of the possible players for the team, then it didn’t materialize, but I immediately mentioned his name to Brugiafreddo when the occasion arose for next season. The enthusiasm with which Edoardo immediately accepted our proposal was contagious! I hope he brings this drive and determination to the whole team this year. I’m sure he will be able to learn as much as possible from Sicci, in an excellent “student-teacher” relationship and I also believe that with his character he will be able to carve out his space inside the locker room.” – coach Matteo Battocchio.

The presentation of Edoardo Colangelo will take place tomorrow morning, Friday 9 June at 11.00 at the headquarters of Ribero Autotrasporti in Caraglio, guests of Daniele Ribero, partner and member of the Biancoblù Club, for the official press conference in front of the major newspapers, television and local radio stations.
