The Tuna Callipo Calabria Volleyball, Vibo Valentia
the campaign continues to strengthen and it engages, so I think the French Swan Ngapeth, coming from the Top
The hammer the French, 185 cm tall class 1992, will arrive in Vibo to join the regenerated training roma as one of the elements that has already a good spent in the Superalloy, the equal companions, a Great and Rizzo.
Ngapeth has played in the top French series, from 2009 to 2016, through Tours (where he won a title of Champion of France and two domestic cup), as Beauvais Oise and the Stade Poitiers, before moving to Modena Volley for two consecutive seasons where, despite not being the owner, has managed to stand out whenever he was called upon. Then, during the last championship with the jersey whiteblue has put on show its potential and has impressed for the desire to do.
For him, volleyball is a family legacy: he is the son of Eric Ngapeth, player and coach of volleyball, and brother of Eavarin, one of the volleyball players strongest in the world that currently plays in the Zenit-Kazan.
With this move
of the market, the company’s president Pippo
Callipo set, therefore, a further piece of the puzzle-mate in
for the season 2019-2020.
To trace the
profile Ngapeth is the assistant coach Giancarlo
D’amico: “It’s one of those players that
not sure its a great physicality but comes from a philosophy
pallavolistica very formative, and that it prefers above all the department
defensive. Swan has exceptional quality, both in being able to collect balls impossible
both in the stand in the field. Has a variation of strokes is important in
offensive line that can give pleasure to us coaches because it is
this is the type of player that can make a fundamental contribution to the jump
quality of the group.”
You’re to aggregate to a team now formed. You have a vision enough to be able to express an opinion: that Tuna Callipo will be?
“I am convinced that it will be a very competitive team, composed of young athletes who have a great desire to demonstrate their value in the year of its debut in Italy. We have all the tools to be successful in the course of this year”.
Compared to other teammates you, with Great and Rizzo, you are the veterans of the Superalloy. What advice would you give to beginners?
“I want to recommend to them not to have the anxiety and worry of making a mistake. If you have been chosen to be part of a team that plays in the Italian league is because they have already been shown to be at the height. Must only think about playing and to put in practice what they already do.”
Your name is inevitably compared to that of your brother Evarin. Has never been a problem for you to “hold” a comparison with him?
“Yes, it is true, I have always been only the brother of Earvin for all in the world of volleyball. At times heavy, people expect the same things and often have to work twice as hard to prove what you’re worth. Even at school regarded me as the brother of Earvin. But I am a Swan, with my personality, my strengths, my flaws. On and off the field. However, it is not a problem, now I’m used to and, above all, are proud of him. There is no competition”.
