The beloved Japanese volleyball player Yuji Nishida won’t continue his career overseas.
According to our sources, he will return home after this season with Italy’s Tonno Callipo Calabria Vibo Valentia jersey.
The agreement for the departure of the player, awarded Best Opposite Spiker of the FIVB World Cup in 2019, was established even before the relegation of the club from SuperLega, due the penultimate position in the regular season that just ended.
The 22-year-old opposite will play in the team that launched him to his professional career and with whom he won the V-League in 2020, JTEKT Stings, next season. The Kariya City side was the last, but also the only club for which Nishida performed before coming to Italy for his first and only season abroad.
