Like his players, even Daniele Santarelli looks ahead after the success of theImoco Volley Conegliano in the Italian Super cup: history teaches that this is not the case to rest on its laurels. However, the dramatic 3-0 win over Novara, gives me satisfaction: “I Was convinced that we would have played a good race – he explains – but I was surprised by how many good things we have done. This team has margin of improvement is amazing“.
“It is a pleasure to win and to do it in this way – continues the coach a yellow – also because it saves energy: between 3 days we will be back on the pitch and we played 3 games in a week, all away. So it is a very important success, but we do not think that this is the maximum that the team can achieve“.
Santarelli also identifies the areas in which his team can improve: “We are a bit’ really powerless, is a feature of these players. We must be good at filing errors. In attack we have extraordinary potential, if we could figure out when not to force shots to become really beautiful“.
About Paola Egonu, the MVP of the finals, the coach of the venetian has the words sweet: “It is immediately inserted in the group, it took less than a week. She did so with great humility, and I thank you, because if you wanted to make the first woman, there would have been problems“.
Finally, the short-term goals: “Now there is the Champions of Tuesday, then there is Scandicci, and only later we can think of the Club World cup. We have to work like this: we want to continue as we started, we’d like a lot. We must not underestimate the opponent in Europe, because in the past there have been episodes which were beautiful and we want to avoid them“.
