WORDS BY MYRIAM SYLLA-

I am happy and excited to be a part of Vero Volley, a reality I have chosen because in recent years it has become one of the best in Italy. Facing Monza in the final of the escudetto with Conegliano was difficult, as there was no better team that could put a radius on the wheel. The atmosphere I breathed in the Arena during Race 2 and Race 4 was exciting: the audience, the affection I saw for the girls; I was very impressed with the mentality, the way the team approached us. So I’m glad to be a part of this atmosphere and to continue the work that Vero Volley started last year. I have experience but I think you never stop learning. I want to keep doing it, even in Monza, making available the availability, the energy, the desire to learn and the help that belongs to me. I’m sure the whole group will be available to achieve the goals and this will create a basis for starting. I hope to be able to excite the fans, which has always accompanied me in my career, as I have changed few teams, and enter the hearts of the people of Monza, creating something special. I thank the club for allowing me to get involved with the Monza shirt, all real volleyball. I would like to have great experiences with you, from the first championship match, where I hope to see you as numerous as in the Scudetto Final ».
