Volodymyr Dubinsky, president of SC Prometey, announced this on his Facebook page.
"This is a world-class specialist! And I am infinitely glad that such professionals are coming to work in Ukraine, at VC "Prometey"! All this is happening thanks to the indomitable, invincible heroes of the Armed Forces of Ukraine, whose victory is just around the corner!
The 65-year-old mentor spent most of his career in Italy, where he led 16 clubs. Among them are the famous "Cuneo" and "Wibo Valentia". Under his leadership, "Vibo Valentia", rising from the second division, achieved the best result in history in the first year, taking seventh place in the championship, as well as reaching the 1/4 final stage of the Italian Cup and the playoffs of the national championship.
The Italian's track record includes work with the men's national teams of Brazil and Italy. As a head coach, Flavio worked with the national teams of Austria, Portugal, Slovakia, and Egypt. By the way, since 2015, the Egyptian national team qualified for the Olympics in Rio with Gulinelli.
In the coaching staff of the Italian national team, he became the winner of the World League, the winner of the World Cup, as well as the bronze medalist of the European Championship. In 2009, Gulinelli led the team "Iraklis" (Greece) during the season. The Greek club, which is having the worst season in its history, was revived by the arrival of Flavio and reached the final of the Champions League (the best result in the history of the club).
In the same season, the Italian, becoming the head coach of the Austrian national team, achieved the best result in the history of this country - 7th place in the League of Europe. Before that, the team did not even make it to the qualifying part of major international competitions.
Gulinelli also headed the Turkish clubs "Halkbank" and "Galatasaray". Together with the Greek "Olympiakos" in 2011 and 2017, he became the champion of the country.
Flavio, benvenuto! We are glad to welcome you to the big family of Prometey! I am sure that you have something to teach to our players, to PVLU, and to the whole national volleyball!" – Volodymyr Mykhailovych has written.
