It seems Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia will have an important role in Italian Superlega next season, as the second and third Brazilian arrived to reinforce them.
After the Rio 2016 champion Maurício Borges, they hired one more player from the squad that made this Olympic success for Brazil – Douglas Souza. The 25-year-old Best Outside Spiker at the last FIVB World Championships as well as at the 2015 Pan American Games, came to Vibo from EMS Taubaté Funvic.
With them, Douglas won the two championship titles in a row in three seasons.
Moreover, the strong middle blocker Flávio Gualberto joined the Calabrian club. The 28-year-old who come to Vibo is a winner of the 2019 FIVB World Cup and of a two-time Best Middle Blocker of the Pan American Cup. He spent the last season in Poland, competing for Aluron CMC Warta Zawiercie.
