Transfer news – Scoring machine Nimir goes to Trento!
News from the clubs

Trento, Italy, June 26, 2020. On the very same day when they celebrate their city’s patron saint, the supporters of TRENTINO Volley had one additional reason to cheer, as their favourite club announced the transfer of Dutch star opposite hitter Nimir Abdel-Aziz. Nimir is the fourth Dutch player to wear the shirt of the Italian heavyweight, following Wytze Kooistra (in the 2005/2006 season), Kay van Dijk (2013/2014) and Maarten van Garderen (2018/2019).

This is the most important transfer announced by TRENTINO Volley ahead of the 2020/2021 season this far. Nimir was the most prolific player in each of the last three editions of the Italian Superlega, thus scoring as many as 1,267 points in 67 matches he contested between 2017 and 2020. Abdel-Aziz will be playing for TRENTINO Volley for the next three years, meaning he is set to become one of the main ‘pillars’ of the yellow-and-blue team.

Even though he started his career as a setter and switched to the opposite position in 2015 only, the 28-year-old Nimir is a very physical player, who very much helped Allianz Powervolley MILANO make it to the top section of the charts in the highly competitive Italian national league.

“Nimir Abdel-Aziz is a world-class spiker, one of those players who alone are worth the ticket to our matches because he is both physical and spectacular,” explains the President of TRENTINO Volley, Diego Mosna. “I am happy and proud that he has chosen Trento to continue his Superlega career; with his contribution, we can make an important qualitative leap and aim higher and higher. I really cannot wait to see him on the court and I hope that our fans will appreciate this important announcement, which comes on the very same day that our city is celebrating its patron saint.”
