Alongside the TOP teams like Vive Kielce, Telekom Veszprem and SG Flensburg Handewitt, who made the most “big transfers” if you take in consideration TOP 50 transfers of summer 2017, the most interesting impact on the team will have new forces in German MT Melsungen. The team from Kassel has very good financial structure which able that roster becoming stronger and stronger every next season. With Kuhn, Simic, Lemke and Reichmann, coach Michael Roth got the TOP quality reinforcements in the best ages, ready to make an “earthquake” among the best in DKB Bundesliga.

Kielce’s “re-generation” was payed in the last season with early elimination in the EHF Champions League. Now, it is time for a new beginning with names like Alex Dujshebaev, Blaz Janc and Marko Mamic. Dujshebaev signed the “best of the best” in some positions and it will be interesting to see how quick they will adapt on the playing system.
