SANTA CROCE (PISA) – The best scorer of the last two seasons of A2 Credem Banca will wear the red and white shirt of Kemas Lamipel Santa Croce next season. He is Matheus Motzo, an Italian of Brazilian origins, born in 1999. Role: opposite. Adding up what he achieved in 2020-21 and 2021-22, Motzo scored 922 points in 45 games played (in second place we find a “certain” Walla Souza with 899). Excellent performance rankings also in the winning attacks and in the point-beats (third overall in the two-year period behind absolute tops such as Michele Fedrizzi and Padura Diaz). The Santacrocese public will certainly remember him for the monstrous performance offered to Pala Parenti in the first leg match between Kemas Lamipel and Libertas: 34 points, of which 6 winning blocks and 3 aces. A real bomber, not very high (192 cm) but with an extraordinary elevation and a great technique. It is a high-level profile: futuristic but also ready to immediately offer an adequate return to an ambitious square like that of Santa Croce sull’Arno.
Motzo began his climb to volleyball that counts in Club Italia at the age of 16. He remains in Rome until 2019, closing with the blue representative in A2 and taking home a silver medal, as a protagonist, at the Under 21 world championships. In 2019 he arrives in Cantù: three consecutive seasons in the category, the first as a spiker receiving, the last two from opposite.
THE WORDS OF MATHEUS MOTZO-
«What attracted me in a particular way about the call of the Holy Cross? In all the occasions in which I have challenged Kemas Lamipel, I have always faced a good team, tough to face, which has always achieved good results, especially in recent years. I considered it the ideal place to work and make yourself available. As for my past season, I can be satisfied from some points of view, despite the championship being full of difficulties. Less satisfied on others. My goals for next season are to give one hundred percent for my new team and also to work technically on some aspects that I feel I can still improve. As an opponent I have always had the impression that S. Croce was a place where you feel good, where you work, and where volleyball counts a lot and is very popular. I’m excited to start and thank the club for the trust they have placed in me. Greetings to all the fans, I am waiting for you at the Palazzetto and I will try to do my best so that all together we can take away a lot of satisfaction ».
