Who is this Douglas Duarte from Innsbruck? I've never heard about him before.
According to Wikipedia, he left Brazil a while ago and, by volleyball standards, is already a long time now with the austrians. Don't think is too impressive as a player but being team captain probably shows that he is an established and important figure for the team off the court too.
Also it's surreal to see a team led by Danilo Gelinski leading the German league. He's never been really any good here in Brazil before. Good for him I guess.
He is truly getting a lot of praise at the moment by coach and media. Tbh i haven't seen them playing too often in last two years to make a proper judgement. Maybe he is a kind of late bloomer. Happens at times in volleyball, especially with setters......
