Best German Playmaker, Michael Mimi Kraus (27) signed 4 years contract with Bundesliga vice-champion, HSV Hamburg. That is a epilogue of “never ending TOP story” where the actors were Kraus, his former and his future team, Lemgo and HSV. After he announced that “he wants to play in Champions League next season”, Kraus was under the pressure, expecially after EURO 2010, where Germans was 10th on the end. He had problem with a club discipline, got suspension in Februar, but on the end finished season in “big style” with scoring 12 goals in a second match of Cup EHF final against Swiss Kadeten and won the trophy.
Now, everything is a history. Kraus will play in CL next season and TBV Lemgo stayed satisfied with a 300.000 Euros from the transfer release.
