Italian Gian Luca Pasini has often shocked the world with his reports about the volleyball world. This time, a journalist associated with “La Gazzetta Dello Sport” reported revelations about the Polish representative, Aleksander Śliwka.
It happened many times that transfer reports had to be taken lightly, especially when they were transmitted online by the above-mentioned Italian sources. However, over the years, Gian Luca Pasini from “La Gazzetta Dello Sport” has been able to hit the mark with his predictions or information, also related to Polish volleyball players.
Will Aleksander Śliwka exchange ZAKSA for a club from the Italian league?
Already at the beginning of January, one of the most, if not the most important, player of the Polish national team was targeted for transfer. As can be found on the blog under Pasini’s name, Aleksander Śliwka may move to the Apennine Peninsula after this season. Moreover, the captain of Grupa Azoty ZAKSA Kędzierzyn-Koźle would be the successor of… Wilfredo Leon.
Śliwka was among the characters associated with Sir Susa Vim Perugia. On the Italian website you can find information that if the captain of the Polish runner-up were to decide to transfer to the Italian league, Leon would have to look for a new place to play. The captain of the Perugia team has had health problems since the beginning of the season, struggling with an injured knee – while still playing for the White and Reds.
Let us remind you that Kamil Semeniuk also plays in the Perugia team. In the case of Śliwka’s transfer, the duo of receivers who constituted ZAKSA’s strength in the game for the most important awards in the Champions League could not be ruled out. Suffice it to say that Śliwka and Semeniuk won MVP awards in the European Cup final matches year after year, in 2021 and 2022.
Wilfredo Leon’s mysterious injury
Over the last several days, there have been conflicting news regarding Leon’s return to the pitch. A negative scenario even assumed the turn of February and March regarding the Polish representative’s return to the court.
Slightly better news than from “Przegląd Sportowy” came from TVP Sport. According to Sara Kalisz, a sports journalist from Telewizja Polska, Leon may return in a few weeks. The information was provided by the president of the mentioned club from Perugia, the famous Gino Sirci.
