It’s time for the reigning Brazilian winners Sada Cruzeiro to say goodbye to two players that wore their jerseys for almost a decade,
more precisely 9 seasons!
They are starting middle blocker and setter, Isac Santos and Fernando Kreling ’Cachopa’.
A 31-year-old Isac stepped into the Contagem side in 2013, coming from São Bernardo, and became a Brazil National Team member already the same year. He won 6 Brazilian Superligas and Cups each, 4 Super Cups, 4 FIVB Club World Championships, and 7 South American Club Championships with Cruzeiro, and he was named Best Middle Blocker of the South American Club Championship 4 times.
About Cachopa, he has also been a member of Cruzeiro since 2013 and raised in the club, but had to spend 2 years in the second team and one year playing for both the second team and the first team combined. Hence, the fewer trophies in his collection with the Minas Gerais giants than Isac. The 26-year-old setter won 4 Superligas, 5 national Cups, 4 Super Cups, 3 FIVB Club World Championships, and 6 South American Club Championships.
In 2020, he was recognized as the MVP of the South American Club Championship.
Still unofficially, both player will move to Italy: Isac in Cucine Lube Civitanova and Cachopa in Vero Volley Monza….
