Maren Brinker joins Kozuch to play for Italy's BUSTO ARSIZIO
News from the clubs
Busto Arsizio, Italy, June 3, 2012. Another member of Germany’s national team, Maren Brinker, will be playing for Italy’s Unendo Yamamay BUSTO ARSIZIO in the season where last year’s national champions and CEV Cup winners will make their debut in the CEV Volleyball Champions League. Brinker joins her captain Margareta Anna Kozuch who was signed only some 10 days ago by the emerging force of Italy’s Volleyball community.
Born in Leverkusen in 1986, Brinker was scouted for a long time by the club from the outskirts of Milan, and already spent one season in Italy playing last year for the likes of Scavolini PESARO. Brinker is regularly included in the starting six of Germany’s national team and finished second at last year’s European Championship in Beograd playing there as outside hitter.
Last year Brinker scored a total of 280 points in the national league, with a 36.9% of efficiency that evidently drew the attention of many competitors.
