Second confirmation in the Delta Group Porto Viro roster: the opposite Giacomo Bellei will wear the nerofucsia shirt also in the next Serie A2 Credem Banca championship.
Born in 1988, 202 centimeters tall, born in Zevio – province of Verona – but Modena in his DNA, Bellei is thus preparing to experience the third consecutive season at the court of the Veronese President. Only once during his long and honorable career (16 seasons in Serie A, 8 of which in SuperLega, almost 3700 points scored, a Challenge Cup and an A2 Italian Cup in his palmares) had he tied for three years in a row at the same club: between 2013 and 2016 in Verona, with whom he also played in 2007/2008.
If history repeats itself today, it is because the relationship between “Jack” and the Porto Viro environment has become a special relationship, a question of belonging: “When you stay for so long in a company it means that you share its vision, its perspectives and after two years together it is natural that very strong emotional ties have been created with all the people who revolve around Delta Volley, managers, staff, fans, sponsors – says Bellei – I’m here because I want to continue to make this beautiful sporting project grow and I’m lucky enough to be able to do it while staying close to home, to my family. I feel a strong attachment to the shirt, which pushes me to always try to give something extra on the pitch, even when fatigue and aches and pains occur. I thank the President Veronese, the DG Pavan and the DS Vedovotto for still wanting me in the team, let’s continue this adventure together and hope to have another great year”.
Last season Bellei often gave his contribution during the match in progress, however proving to be decisive for the fate of the Delta Group: “Even in the days of the SuperLega I started from opposite second, so I knew well what type of role awaited me, but, as I said, my goal is to help society and the environment grow and I’m willing to contribute in whatever way is needed. Last year, however, I had the opportunity to play often, even in the most important matches, and this is gratifying after so many hours of work in the gym. I honestly don’t think starting from the bench can give you extra motivation, if anything the higher the level of the team in training, the more everyone is stimulated to do better, and this is certainly good for the group.”
