A former Virtus Bologna man on Ettore Messina’s staff
Peppe Poeta, who retired at the end of last season, joins Olimpia Milano.
Air of change in Olimpia Milano, the club freshly crowned champions of Italy after the thrilling Scudetto series won against Virtus Bologna. Just a former player of the Vu Nere, recently retired after his last experience with the Vanoli Cremona jersey, joins the staff of the ‘Red Shoes’.
In fact, with a note appeared on the official website, Olimpia gave evidence of the arrival of Dan Shamir, who takes the place of Gianmarco Pozzecco, and Peppe Poeta, who takes over from Marco Esposito.
“Born in Battipaglia on September 12, 1985, Poeta has just announced his retirement from competitive activity. During his playing career, he played at Salerno, Veroli, made his Serie A debut at Teramo and then was at Virtus Bologna, Baskonia and Manresa in Spain, then Trento, Turin, Reggio Emilia and Cremona. He played 120 games in the national team and won the 2019 Coppa Italia with Torino,” reads the statement from the Milanese club.
“I am happy and proud of the opportunity to start a new professional path in a club among the most prestigious in Europe and in a staff of absolute level led by a head coach from whom I will surely learn so much. I will bring my motivation and enthusiasm in an effort to be immediately useful to staff and players,” said the Campanian.
