Trento, 26 June 2020

One more reason to celebrate June 26th in Trento: here is the dutch opposite hitter Nimir!

Today, Friday 26 June, San Vigilio, patron of the city, is celebrated in Trento. Trentino Volley wants to offer fans one more reason to celebrate. In fact, the arrival with the yellow-blue jersey of the best opposite hitter of the Super League 2019/20 is official: the Dutchman Nimir Abdel-Aziz!
The extraordinary purchase, among the most important of the entire 2020 summer session, has been signed: the most prolific hitter of the last three regular seasons (1,267 points in 67 games between 2017 and 2020) for the next three years will be a player of Itas Trentino.
The twenty-eight year old from S. Gravenhage is in fact an excellent player, able to guarantee excellent performances in attack, block and service; despite having started to play the opposite role only in 2015 (previously he also distinguished himself as a dribbler), he was able to prevail, taking Milan to the top of the ranking. He arrives in Trento to try to win his first trophy as an opposite hitter and to "inflame" the public, who can start celebrating his arrival as a team starting this evening, June 26th.
"Nimir Abdel-Aziz is a world-class player, one of those players who are worth the ticket price because he is spectacular - explained President Diego Mosna - . I am happy and proud that he chose Trentino Volley to continue his SuperLega career. With him we can make an important improvement in quality and aim higher and higher. I really want to see him on the field and I hope that the people of Trentino will appreciate this gift that we wanted to give them on the day of the patron saint “.
Nimir Abdel-Aziz will be the fourth Dutch player in the history of Trentino Volley after Wytze Kooistra (middle hitter, in Trentino Volley in the 2005/06 season), Kay Van Dijk (opposite hitter, 2013/14 season) and Maarten Van Garderen (spiker, 2018 season / 19).
