The MVP of the Belgrade final has not forgotten the criticisms received in Tokyo 2020.
A fantastic victory, that of the Italians of Italvolley, in the European championships which saw their final act at the Stark Arena in Belgrade. A triumph that gave coach Mazzanti’s girls immense joy, exactly one month after the scorching elimination suffered at the Olympics at the hands of Serbia. The criticisms received during that match – Mazzanti himself spoke of an excessive use of social media, which would have distracted the girls – remained well etched in the players’ heads. Paola Egonu is no exception, the absolute driver of the team, who during the celebrations published an Instagram Story with a somewhat controversial flavor.
“After so much shit we are European champions”, the Imoco spiker shouted before all her mates started shouting for joy in the locker room.
