Italian volleyball blogger Gian Luca Pasini has recently stated that Sir Safety Perugia has reached a two-year contract extension agreement with the team’s Serbian duo of Aleksandar Atanasijević and Marko Podraščanin. The 26-year-old Atanasijević has been with Perugia since 2013, while the 30-year-old Podraščanin joined the club in 2016. Both are important members of the Serbian national team. Here is a quote from Gino Serci, Perugia’s president, commenting on the matter:
“Yes, we have reached an agreement in all aspects for a two year extension with Atanasijevic and Podrascanin. I have already put my signature on the two documents, since I will be out for work in a few days.
Perugia’s future today starts with Aleksandar Atanasijević and Marko Podraščanin and not with Ivan Zaytsev, which has decided to change positions. I understand that, even in soccer it is better to be a striker than than a defender. We believe he will play somewhere else.
About leon, Today we are a bit more confident. He has practically left Kazan and if he chooses to still have a financial payout similar to what he has in Russia, he will choose Japan, Korea, or China. Otherwise we are in the front row with a financial offer that he knows is just inferior, but with other positive aspects.”
Sir Safety Perugia currently leads A1’s standings with a 20-2 record. Atanasijevic, the league’s third highest scorer with a 4.92 points per set average, and Podrascanin, which is the league’s second best blocker at 0.73 blocks per set, are big factors why.
