BRUTALLY HONEST, Kim Ekdahl Du Rietz: Handball was never my passion – A lot of players would like to take year-off

Kim Ekdahl Du Rietz is definitely the “special one” in handball world. The 29-years old Swedish left back showed that handball isn’t the only thing in which he is interested by taking the break during nine months of 2017/2018 season. Kim decided to leave Rhein Neckar Lowen and travel around the world, but then, once again, joined German team in which he spent five and a half years in total.

Now, he is at Paris Saint Germain, the most ambitious team of the world. Du Rietz talked to stregspiller.com about his way of living and thinking and gave honest answer on question about pleasure and handball…

  • Pleasure? I don’t know… it has never been a pleasure to me; handball was never my passion. Everybody around me knows that. But I’m happy where I am right now.But after taking my decision, it felt that up to a point, I was making many players’ dreams come true. A lot of players came to me and told me that they would like to stop and take a year-off as well, but they couldn’t.
