Samuel Onwuelo (Plus Volleyball Sabaudia): “The tournament just concluded in Tuscania was a great way for us to continue in this growth process to get to the championship in the best possible way. After more than three weeks of preparation, playing two games and starting to get into match rhythm is extremely important. We still have a lot to work on but the path is the right one. Winning the MVP was a nice way to remember with pleasure the memory of Massimo Pierantozzi, a fantastic person who I thank and to whom I dedicate the award.”
