Frenchman Raphaël Corre, German Moritz Reichert and Spaniard Daniel Ruiz are the first recruits of MHSC VB for next season.
A new era begins in Montpellier. With a new coach in the person of the Italian Lorenzo Tubertini who arrives in the Hérault after a season in Narbonne as assistant coach and a rich career in the biggest Italian clubs. On the bench, he will be assisted by Loic Le Marrec (46), a former club player in the early 2010s and 190 selections with the Blues on the clock.
Following a mediocre season, the leaders of MHSC VB decided to modify a large part of the workforce to build around Nicolas Le Goff, Ezequiel Palacios and Danny Demianenko.
Thus, as we announced during the season, the passer Raphaël Corre signed in Montpellier. Captain of Chaumont so far, the tricolor international (33 years old) represents a good pickaxe for the club of President Jean-Charles Caylar. Passed by Rennes, Nice, Lyon and Cannes, he ended his fourth season at CVB with a lost final in the French championship against Tours. Corre will bring his experience, talent and leadership to a rebuilding team.
Caylar: “Play the title and find Europe”
The second flagship recruit of the MHSC version 2023-2024 is called Moritz Reichert (28 years old, 1.95m). The German international was the receiver-attacker at Tourcoing this season. He has the advantage of knowing the championship well, having passed through Tours in 2017-2018.
Finally, the MHSC VB announces this Wednesday the arrival of a curiosity in League A: the Spaniard Daniel Ruiz. Aged 28, he will occupy the position of libero. This is his first experience in France after a first part of his career in his native country and a freelance in Portugal.
“We are starting a new cycle by projecting ourselves on the next two seasons, explains Jean-Charles Caylar. The one that comes will begin at the end of October to make way for the Olympic qualifying tournaments and will end in April for the internationals to prepare for the Olympics. Thus, the objective is to find the first four places of the regular season and to play for the title. But also winning the Coupe de France, a competition we have never won. We want to return to Europe the following season.”
