|2016/17||Angelo Lorenzetti arrives |
on the bench of Trento
The season 2016/17 has seen Trentino Volley begin a new cycle; after Radostin Stoytchev left Trento in July 2016, Angelo Lorenzetti has become the new coach, who often played against the Yellow-blue Club in the recent past when he trained Piacenza and Modena. Lorenzetti has been positively welcomed by the fans, partly because he had just won the treble (Supercoppa, Coppa Italia and Scudetto) with the team from Emilia-Romagna. He found a starting-six at his disposal, in which he couldn’t change much compared to the previous season. In the role of opposite, in place of Mitar Djuric (who went to Verona) now there is Jan Stokr, who has been welcomed back by the supporters. The beginning of the season, after a short pre-championship retreat in Valsugana, wasn’t so easy; Diatec Trentino immediately suffered two defeats in the Final Four of Supercoppa Italiana, which proved how big the gap from Modena, Perugia and Civitanova was. The fourth place at PalaPanini at the end of the first competition didn’t discourage the players, on the contrary; it boosted their confidence and gave them an important objective, which was getting every day nearer and nearer: playing against anyone on the same level.
