Among the new names, perhaps the most anticipated was the “Bomber,” which Virtussini fans will have to strip their hands off of to guarantee a show on the court: Alejandro Rizo Gonzalez is the new Virtussino counterpart, the one with the “heavy tips” and the “hot balls”.
Cuban from Santa Clara, born in 1990, height 200 cmRizo was a globetrotter (Switzerland, Indonesia, Saudi Arabia, Tunisia, Argentina, while in Italy the experiences of Atripalda, Macerata and this year Grottazzolina are remembered in A2) and first of all wants to immediately warm the hearts of the Fanesi : “I want to remember the first person who helped me enter Italy in 2011 – remembers Rizo – that Joe Salgado, who I know, played in Fano. For me he is a great friend because thanks to him I was able to settle in well in your country.”
Many experiences abroad, but also important Italian stations: “I remember Macerata in 2019 – Gonzalez continues – unfortunately the Covid-19 disease came at a time when we were having a great championship. So I decided to go abroad again and this year when I was training at Superlega Milan I got a call from Grottazzolina. At this point I was wondering: why are they calling me when there is a certain Breuning Nielsen in my role? A manager from Milan assured me that Nielsen would have played calmly as a striker, and he did. With the arrival of Gonzalez, the inhabitants of Grotto managed to save themselves after a difficult period, now Fano: “The Fano crowd was beautiful and amazing, I watched the playoffs. My goodness, how many people were there!”
With Macerata in A3, Rizo averaged 25 points per game and says of him: “I’m a sunny person and I like making friends – concludes Rizo – I have a passion for music, I like reggaeton and cuban music which I also like to play. I love being with my family and when I can I bring my whole family from Cuba. I love fitness and would like to work as a personal trainer in the future.”
