The Swedish national team underperformed the 2020 European Championship at home. Much more was expected by the Swedish, who won the silver medal at Men’s EHF EURO 2018 in Zagreb, but Andresson players will leave the tournament without a fight for the three-level podium.
With the victory over Hungary 24:18, the Swedes still have a chance to make an impression, but various stories have started to be told, and one of them is “eternal“, about the career of the left back Kim Ekdahl Du Rietz.
An adventurer in the world of professional handball, again announced that next summer might be the end of his professional career.
- My contract with Paris Saint-Germain expires in the summer, and I hope we will go to the Olympics later. It could be the end, too – said the 30-year-old Swede, who was already in the public eye when he stopped to play for Rhein Neckar Lowen few years ago and went to trip around the world.
However, he quickly got bored with tourism, so after a year or so he returned to handball, and now playing at Paris Saint Germain.
Du Rietz stated that he needed such a break and that many handball players dream of it. After five years he returned to the national team, but it did not go smoothly.
This time “telenovela” should have a happy end.
“Kim, please go and don’t get back”.
You deserve to be happy…
