Market, the opposite Gabriele Nelli comes back to wear the jersey of Trentino Volley

After two absolute news like Dzavoronok and Laurenzano, the summer session of the 2022 market offers an appreciated return for Trentino Volley: in the 2022/2023 roster there will be indeed space also for Gabriele Nelli, the twenty-year-old opposite spiker grown in the Youth section.
After two seasons from last time, the hammer from Tuscany will be able to wear once again the Yellow-blue jersey and he will do so taking with him the great experience achieved in the last seasons, lived playing not only in the Italian Championship but also in the Russian and French ones. After winning the Club World Championship, as absolute protagonist, the CEV Cup with Trento in the 2018/19 season, Nelli has indeed played in Piacenza, Belgorod, Cannes and Vibo Balentia.
“In giving Gabriele a welcome back, I must refer to the previous and positive experiences that we had together in Trento,” said the trainer Angelo Lorenzetti. “This return encounters two needs: our need to find a substitute of great value for Pinali in the new team and the one of a player, who saw in the Society, where he grew up, the right place to play once again and find his best volleyball, something that in the last years lost a bit because of some physical problems. We hope that all of this can now be just a bad memory. Nelli is a player that in Trento does not need a presentation and so I have to express my great satisfaction for the Club’s choice to bring him back here.”
He will be wearing the T-shirt number 2 (the one that he wore in the years of the debut in the first team).
