Trento, 10 December 2019
For Kovacevic will be the hundredth presence with Trentino Volley on Thursday evening
Among the many interesting reasons of the match that will be played on Thursday 12 December between Trentino Itas and Fenerbahce HDI Sigorta Istanbul (first seasonal match in 2020 CEV Champions League), one is closely linked to Uros Kovacevic.
The season debut in the European field (beginning of the match scheduled for 8.30 pm) will in fact be a particularly important moment for the Serbian spiker: on this occasion, he will collect his hundredth presence with the Trentino Volley t-shirt.
A significant situation, considering that Kovacevic will only be the fourth player in the current roster to have hundred presences; better than him only Giannelli (254 matches), Djuric (138) and Vettori (109). In 99 matches played until today (42 in the 2017/18 season, 47 in 2018/19 and 10 in the current one), Uros scored 1380 points (572 in the 2017/18 season, 686 in the 2018/19, 122 in 2019 / 20) placing himself in the ninth place among the “all time" bomber of the yellow-blue Club.
“I am proud to achieve this goal in a Champions League match; an event that we earned on the field - admitted Kovacevic - . Wearing so many times the t-shirt of a prestigious club like Trentino Volley for me is a source of pride as well as a motivation to continue on this path. I am very happy because the centenaries are few and this is a very special number. Among the many circumstances, it would be easy to indicate the final of the 2018 Club World Cup and the one of 2019 CEV Cup as the most significant moments for me. However, for me it was also very significant the final won in Busto Arsizio on December 30th 2017 against Powervolley Milano, because we won performing a comeback (from 0-2 to 3-2), cancelling the home defeat suffered in the first round of that championship and going towards a really positive period in terms of results.”
