Greece: transfer bomb! Salvador Hidalgo joins Olympiacos

1 min read

Current title holders in the Greek Volleyball Championship, Olympiacos S.F.P., hired another player whose name is well-known on European volleyball and not only, Salvador Hidalgo.
The Cuban player born in Russia but with German citizenship (for whose national team he has never got the right to compete) will start in a new club after four years spent with Turkey’s Fenerbahçe HDI Sigorta (with which he won the league and Cup in 2018-19, as well as the Super Cup in 2020-21).
Last season, the 36-year-old outside hitter was named the top server in the Efeler Ligi, while he was also awarded the competition’s MVP in 2018-19.
But not only, as he earned a total of 15 individual awards in his career (some are the 2010 CEV Challenge Cup – Best Server, 2012 Asian Club Championship – Most Valuable Player among others).
Moreover, he has titles won also in the Asian Club Championship and championships of Lebanon, China, and Qatar.
Apart from him, the 30-time Greek champions brought in several more big names this summer: Slovenians Štern and Pajenk, and Italian Travica, and they extended with Italian head coach Alberto Giuliani.
