The incoming market opens in grand style, Videx Yuasa Grottazzolina has secured the sporting performance of Andrea Marchisio (born in 1990, 186 centimeters) for the 2023/24 season, effectively bringing the libero from Cuneo back to the Marche region at a distance of a year after the five-year spell at Lube Civitanova with which he won a champions league, a club world cup, three league titles and two Italian cups.
Twelve months ago the return to A2 with the Castellana Grotte shirt to get back into the game, today the landing under the orders of coach Massimiliano Ortenzi to feed the Grottazzolina project and write a new chapter: “I chose Grottazzolina because it is a club with its history and aims to build an ambitious team – declared Marchisio -. He looked for me and wanted me strongly and this is always a reason for satisfaction for an athlete.”
The Marches in destiny. From his debut with Loreto (2011/12) through Club Italia, Siena and Tuscania (2014/15 and 2016/17) up to his most recent experience in Puglia, what is emerging will be his seventh season in Serie A2. Unquestionable quality and temperament, as evidenced by the numbers of the last edition: 25 games played, 99 sets played, 41.40% of perfect receptions (the only one to exceed the 40% ceiling together with Simone Parodi from Cuneo, second with 40, 24%) and a 6.36 weighted average that gave him the scepter of best receiver in the league. Data that make Marchiani and company’s mouth water.
Just at the debut of the season that has just ended, Marchisio faced Videx Yuasa at the PalaGrotta, anticipating a taste of what will now be his new home: “When we faced each other on the first day of the championship, I was struck by the warmth and drive of the public – added the new free Grotese -. I expect to see him fill the palas again next year as we will need their support as always. I am very charged and enthusiastic about this adventure. I can’t wait to wear this shirt.”
