Legendary Serbian left back Momir Ilic has announced retirement from professional handball at the end of the season. The 38 years old shooter from Telekom Veszprem will stop to play at the end of the season and join David Davis in coaching staff of the Hungarian TOP team.
“It is difficult decision, but it is time to say goodbye to handball. Handball is my life – said Ilic, who began his career at local RK Samot Arandjelovac with stations in RK Kolubara Lazarevac, RK Fidelinka (2002-2004), RK Gorenje (2004-2006), VfL Gummersbach (2006-2009), THW Kiel (2009-2013) and Telekom Veszprem (2013-2019).
Ilic won two EHF Champions League trophies with THW Kiel in 2010 and 2012. Year 2012 was certainly the best in his career as he was voted for MVP of the EHF EURO 2012 when Serbia won silver medal.
