The Brazilian Volleyball Confederation announced the selection of the Men’s Superliga 2021/2022. Lopez, from Cruzeiro, was named the best player of the competition. In addition to the Cuban, Cruzeiro also put central Isac and coach Felipe on the list. From the runner-up Minas, four players were chosen: the setter William, the midfielder Matheus Pinta, the pointer Honorato and the libero Maique. Franco, from Guarulhos was chosen as the best opposite.
– Means a lot. My first Superleague final. We had an excellent season. We put in a lot of effort on a daily basis. I was named MVP, but I think any of us could have been MVP. It’s important to be MVP, but I prefer to be champion even more – said Lopez.

The opposite was the highest scorer of the competition with 477 points. He received the awards in the second game of the final, as he is already in Saquarema with the national team training for the League of Nations.
