The 2nd Handball Talks conference organized by Balkan-Handball.com in Croatian city of Nasice, opened some stories that aren’t ordinary in our handball world. One of the discussions has been with one of the most successful player’s agents Andrej Golic and Milan Jokic, who talked about the pros and cons of their job.
One of the questions was about the neto salaries of the players in TOP handball. How many of them earn 30.000 and more?
- Not too many. Between 10 and 20 – said Jokic. His colleague Golic had the same opinion.
- There is no 20, let’s say 10. I am very carefull when speaking about this topic. This is number of players who receving that money regulary. There are some players who had written it on the paper but waiting for it for 3,4 or 6 months. There are no TOP stars like Mikkel Hansen or Nikola Karabatic, in the recent period Sander Sagosen, who are on some level of earnings. Kristjansson is coming to that category, but I think that tendency on the market will be that club redistributes salary budget on more players than on specific TOP stars like in PSG Handball after Hansen and Karabatic departure – concluded World champion with France in 2001.
