ORTONA (CHIETI)- Sieco Service Impavida Ortona is desperate to be rescued and is therefore continuing to strengthen its staff ahead of the final stretch of the regular season. The Abruzzo-based company today announced the hiring of Trifon Lapkov. Like the setter Dimitrov, Trifon Lapkov is a Bulgarian citizen and was born in 1996. In the Sieco jersey he wears number 14. Lapkov comes from Beroe 2016, a team that plays in the top Bulgarian championship.
Great international experience for the new fearless Trifon. He was trained at the Viktoria Voley volleyball school in Plovdiv and also played for Montana, Levski and Neftohimik in the Bulgarian championship. Outside his country, Lapkov has experience in the top leagues of Holland, Belgium and Saudi Arabia. Now it’s time to discover Italy with this new Sieco adventure. He has always been part of the Bulgarian youth national team and was called up to the senior national team in 2016. With this, Lapkov won the Hubert Wagner Tournament in Poland, a friendly volleyball competition for national teams organized annually and dedicated to the former athlete and coach of the Polish national team Hubert Aleksander Wagner. Trifon will also be there with his national team at one of the World League weekends. In the 2018/2019 season, Lipkov played for the Dutch team Abiant Lycurgus in the top division and Trifon won the championship and the Super Cup. However, a very personal satisfaction came in the 2022/2023 season when he was voted MVP of the Supercup with Hebar Pazardzhik.
The words of Trifon Lapkov
“Yes. With Sieco it will be my first experience in Italy and here I will meet my friend and former teammate from last year in Hebar Pazardzhik.” We already have a good understanding and that can only benefit the team. It is true. I’m joining a team that has to work hard to get out of the quicksand, but the situation doesn’t scare me. In fact, it encourages me to do my best to save the season.”
The words of sports director Massimo D’Onofrio-
“The club never stopped believing in this rescue. Investing in this player is practical proof of his determination to bring home the salvation.”
