His father Vladimir, now a coach, was brought to Italy by Beppe Cormio in 2007/08 and made his mark by winning the Scudetto in both Trento and Cuneo.
So much so that Alex, in addition to Bulgarian and English, speaks fluent Italian thanks to his past in Italy.

An emerging youngster can only be proud of the interest of important clubs in the Serie A1. I am happy with my choice, I will wear the jersey of the Lube Italian champions! The bond between my family and CEO Beppe Cormio has played a decisive role, I’m going to the right place and I can’t wait to train with my new teammates to continue my growth and give my best,” he says.
