Four-time Italian men’s volleyball championship SuperLega winners Cucine Lube Civitanova made a dream of their fans come true – they hired Robertlandy Simón!


The Italian powerhouse, current SuperLega runners-up Cucine Lube Civitanova, engaged Cuban superstar Robertlandy Simón for the 2018/19, making one of the biggest transfer hits in the club history.

A 31-year-old middle blocker (2.08m tall) signed a two-year agreement with Lube after expressing an enormous desire to wear the jersey of an Italian club since the beginning of the summer transfer window.

Details of Simón’s break with the Brazilian Sada Cruzeiro, who set a penalty for a premature contract termination, are still unknown. Thus, the Cuban player returned to the Italian championship after two years (Wixo LPR Piacenza from 2012 to 2014 - won the 2013 CEV Challenge Cup and 2013/14 Italian Cup).

Before joining Cruzeiro, with whom Simón conquered 2016 FIVB Club World Championship, 2017 and 2018 South American Championships, 2017 and 2018 Brazilian Superliga, and 2018 Brazilian cup, he spent two seasons with the Korean Ansan OK Savings Bank Rush & Cash and won the national title in both seasons.

From 2005 to 2010, Simón wore the jersey of Cuba national team, clinching the gold medal in the 2009 NORCECA Championship.

Lube created a true dream team for the upcoming season: Yoandy Leal, Bruno Rezende “Bruninho”, Osmany Juantorena, Tsvetan Sokolov
