Lube Volley have officially confirmed that their captain Dragan Stankovic will leave the club for the season 2019/2020.
However, the reigning champions have announced that the Serbian middle blocker will return in the season 2020/2021.
“Following the talks between the player Dragan Stankovic and the board of the club, two sides talked about the future, leaving Stankovic the possibility to play continuously in the 2019/2020 season in another important Serie A1 team. From the season 2020/2021, the player will have the right to return to Cucine Lube Civitanova. Lube Volley wish all the best to our captain in the next season,” report Lube Volley official website.
“For me it will be important to be able to play an entire season on the court. After this experience, I am sure that in my future there will still be Lube Volley. I thank the fans for the splendid victories we have won together in this year,” says Dragan Stankovic.
His next station for the season 2019/2020 will be Piacenza.
Before Stanković, Piacenza hired Austrian outside hitter Alexander Berger and opposite hitter Gabriele Nelli and renewed with Alessandro Fei, Alessandro Tondo and Russian Igor Yudin.
