Gabriele Nelli recalls #CEVCupM triumph on TV show
2019 CEV Volleyball Cup - Men

Trento, Italy, April 5, 2019. On Tuesday night, TRENTINO Itas opposite hitter Gabriele Nelli joined the weekly TV show “Oltre la rete” run by RAI Sport to share his own impressions from the 2019 CEV Cup finals. Last week, TRENTINO Itas added this title to their resume after edging Galatasaray ISTANBUL of Turkey in the last stage of the competition.

“Obviously, I always hope to play for such a competitive team as TRENTINO, but being able to make it to the starting six is not always easy,” said Nelli, who started his career with the youth team of TRENTINO Volley. “Luca Vettori has been playing a great season, and I am happy for him, but whenever there is the need, I try to be ready and I do it for the team more than for myself. Playing the match in Istanbul where the CEV Cup title was at stake was a great experience.”

TRENTINO came back from 0-2 to secure the two set wins they needed to seize the title. “It was not easy to play your best in such a difficult situation but I did it and I am happy, especially for the club, since TRENTINO have been chasing this victory for years. To win something with the team where you have grown as a person and as a player is fantastic and very gratifying. I am proud of that. We started the beginning of the season with a new project, with a brand new roster that immediately found the right chemistry to achieve something big, as we won the FIVB Club World Championship in Poland back in December. We work well every day because we are very close to each other and this is our strength. With our coach Angelo Lorenzetti we spend a lot of time not only working on the strategy but also on the individual technique, including my favourite side of the game, which is the service.”
