Reporter Park Dae-ro = New coach Marcello Abondanza, who will lead Heungkuk Life Insurance in the women’s professional volleyball team, is expected to be able to command the game on the court only next month.
Heungkuk Life Insurance plans to submit documents to the immigration office on the 20th for the issuance of an Abondanza supervisory work visa. Generally, it takes 1-2 weeks to issue a work visa.
Accordingly, coach Abondanza is expected to appear on the court only after round 6, the last round of professional volleyball this season.
Heungkuk Life Insurance has to play a home game against Korea Expressway Corporation on the 23rd and an away game against GS Caltex on the 26th under the acting system of Kim Dae-kyung in the absence of manager Abondanza.
Abondanza’s first game in Korea is expected to be an away game against Pepper Savings Bank on the 2nd of next month or an away game against road construction on the 7th of next month.
Although he cannot go on the court yet, coach Abondanza visited Seoul Jangchung Gymnasium on the 19th to watch the Heungkuk Life Insurance game. Coach Abondanza greeted the coaching staff of Heungkuk Life Insurance after the game. He even took a commemorative photo while standing between Kim Yeon-kyung and Yelena. 먹튀검증
It was because of the earthquake that hit Turkiye that director Abondanza had to enter the country before a work visa was issued. It has been reported that the Turkish League has been suspended due to the earthquake, and the affiliated team, Turkiye Airlines, has terminated the contract with coach Abondanza.
In the wake of the earthquake, negotiations between manager Abondanza and Heungkuk Life Insurance, who were already included in the recruiting candidates, accelerated, and it is known that manager Abondanza was appointed during the season.
Abondanza started his coaching career in the Italian league in 1996. After that, he served as coach of the Italian national team, coach of the Bulgarian, Canadian and Greek national teams, and was recognized for his leadership by leading world-class teams such as Azerbaijan’s Lavita Baku, Türkiye Fenerbahce, and Italy’s Zanetti Bergamo.
