Sada Cruzeiro won the FIVB Volleyball Men’s Club World Championship for the fourth time and dominated the tournament’s Dream Team with four of the seven selected players. Besides Lopez and Wallace, the hosts also had setter Fernando ‘Cachopa’ and middle blocker Otavio in the ideal lineup. Lube’s Robertlandy Simon (middle blocker) and Fabio Balaso (libero) and Trentino’s Alessandro Michieletto (outside hitter) completed the team.
Awarded as the tournament’s Most Valuable Player, Cuban Olympian Miguel Angel Lopez was unstoppable in the gold medal match.
“We were strong from the first to the last point of the tournament and I’m really proud of each of us. When I first got here, I said I wanted to win as many titles as possible with Sada and this victory is a big part of it. To me, our entire team is the real MVP. Every player did their job really well and I’m proud of the entire team. My serve didn’t work well in the opening match and my teammates gave me all the confidence I needed to keep going for it.” Lopez said.
