The adventure in red and white of the young spiker Mattia Gottardo comes to an end. After a season that saw him used in fits and starts by Cucine Lube to help the team in delicate moments, complete with entry into the decisive round of the Scudetto Finale, the athlete from Veneto on loan from Pallavolo Padova is ready for a new experience. Strengthened by the U21 world title and the U22 continental title, the Azzurrino stood out in the Club for his strong-willed attitude, his strong personality on the pitch and his feeling with the rest of the group.

Mattia Gottardo: “The season at Lube was worth three years of my career for me – said the athlete -, due to the intensity of the course, the challenges faced and the confidence gained. I experienced strong emotions. Before wearing this shirt, being among the protagonists of a Scudetto Final with the big names was little more than a fantasy for me, a dream I cultivated as a kid. Right from the start I felt a lot of trust from the technical staff and management because after the free seasons in Padua they called me to place me in the spiker department and this gave me charge. I tried to do my best when I was needed, but I always gave everything even in training because at these levels it’s essential to stimulate my teammates in exchanges in the gym. Every single game helped me grow. I don’t just leave valuable athletes and an excellent staff, but real friends and a wonderful fan base. Civitanova will remain in my heart, it would be nice to come back and play here one day. Every summer I will stop by to say hello to whoever will be there”.

A.S. Volley Lube thanks Mattia for the commitment and professionalism that characterized his stay. Best wishes to him for a bright future.
