The most-titled men’s club of the French league and defending champion Cannes recently announced a new head coach: Horacio Dileo, the assistant to Marcelo Méndez in the Argentina National Team.
The Argentinean expert worked in Brazil for the last 9 years, coming to Cannes from Vôlei Renata.
Additionally, the French champions have secured the arrival of the Italy National Team member Gabriele Nelli, who spent the last season in Russia’s Belogorie Belgorod and will take place of Australian Lincoln Williams, who will play in Korea next season.
In any case, lot of new face for the club, who said goodbye to several players: outside-hitters Aciobanitei (who’ll play for vice-champions Chaumont) and Lacassie (he is back to Ajaccio), but also middle-blockers Averill (he’ll continue his career in Poland, with AZS Olsztyn jersey) and Rodriguez (to Saint Nazaire). Also setter Liot will play elsewhere in 2021/22 season.
