One of the icons of the Danish golden era in world of men’s handball, Morten Olsen has changed club in the middle of the season.
Legendary playmaker, the one with the most influence in the recent successes of the Danish national team, at age 39 surprisingly moved from GOG to Bjerringbro Silkeborg.
Olsen was the leader of the GOG generation who won two domestic Championships in a row, but this season after in post Nikolaj Krickau era, team doesn’t play so well, currently taking 6th position in the League.
“I think that BSH is a really good team, a good club and with great potential. I believe and hope that I can help ensure that together we stand even stronger in the fight for gold. Besides, everything outside of handball will suit us as a family very well,” says Morten Olsen about the change.
“I went to BSH to win titles. I think the team is up to it – and on the right day we can get gold. That is the goal for me. I am of course excited to start in a new but familiar place. But I’m looking forward to winning a lot with BSH. Hopefully I can help to make an impact on the team in the attack on the field.” “I am very much looking forward to starting up and getting started. I’m just looking forward to playing handball for the club, winning matches and having fun. And maybe I can show the others how to take an extra step or two and still be allowed to score,” says Morten Olsen with a smile for the official website.
Bjerringbro Silkeborg are currently on position No.3 in domestic Championship and qualified for the Men’s EHF European League TOP 16 phase with the chance to take two points in the last match of the preliminary Group against Serbian champions RK Vojvodina Novi SAD.
