The picture they decided to publish says April 2020. A very important month, also pallavolisticamente talking about. But for Santiago Orduna and his wife Lucila this month will consecrate the birth of their first child:
“We choose to inform now, with an immense joy. 2020 will be a year regardless very nice to me and Lucy, because this son comes after a path that is intense and full of love.”
That the father will be in Santiago Orduna?
“Present. Wise. Caring. What was, for me, my father, I will try to be me for this son. I grew up in a close-knit family, and with my wife we aim to recreate that same environment”.
Among the youth she is one of the volleyball players and more appreciated. Why?
“I was like them many years ago. I dreamed of a stage like the one in which I had the good fortune to play in the following years. Perhaps I have stitched a picture of what arrived in the Superalloy with the sacrifice and hard training, more than with my physical abilities. To the guys that I meet always say that you can get anywhere”.
You are about to close instead of 2019. How would you describe your year?
“Intense. Touching all the nuances of what is meant by the word intensity. Joyful, because the news just commented on. Thoughtful, because I spent a period of time after the end of the season in which I have had the need to remove the head and put in order many thoughts”.
As it turns out by the end of the season than last year?
“It comes out with the strength and the desire to return to the field. Turn on everything with the new stimuli that you create in the automation of my head. And thinking only to re-create the magic that is created at Monza last year. This time even more light”.
Tell me the truth: what she experienced in the first four days?
“I will respond by describing my legs and my arms. Scalpitavano, it was as if you asked me to cross the line demarcated between the field and the grandstand and move into a place that in my twelve years in Italy it was my every Sunday. Without ever a break. Son of a commitment that began on Monday in the gym, and ended the Sunday, on the field, eager to return to the field on Sunday next.”
Can I ask what he said to his father before returning to the field?
“To think of. Play. Of to enjoy it. To explode in a reasoned way. I wanted to win, help bring the Monza and the team to enjoy the first win of the season. We are a nice team this year. Improved in all departments.”
His agreement with Kurek improves day by day.
“It is explosive, like me. He has the physical skills are exceptional and has a great desire to do that here at Monza. Elements of the genre improve as much an organic and make the difference at critical moments. In general, it is a team with which you work very well”.
After the defeat against Piacenza has said that certain games should not miss.
“The anger at the end of the race was much. Is the anger racing. No you can not raise the bar the next week. I think I’ve proven to be able to hold off many opponents with these guys, especially in the last year. Also against those who are travelling in the top of the rankings”.
Is aware that it is one of the world’s most competitive in the Superleague?
“(laughs, no.d.r.) I am competitive in everything. The game for me is competitiveness. It is the challenge. Is character. Me bored if every game in and of itself, that the cards or a championship final, lost competitiveness”.
Where you can get to Monza this year?
“The answer is exactly as I say to those guys: you can get anywhere. Want is power. As ever this year, the statement has a truth in it”.
