The Danish playmaker Rasmus Lauge Schmidt explained reasons why he decided to move to Hungary in summer 2019 in interview for the official website of Telekom Veszprem:
– Veszprém is a great club with big ambitions. They are going all in to win the Champion League. You do not have so long journeys in the Hungarian league, that way I can take a bit more care of my body. It is important because I had two big injuries in my career and that way I can take care of myself. The Bundesliga is hard and we have long travels. It is an advantage in Veszprém that I can prepare better and hopefully play handball as long as possible – said Rasmus, who pointed out talk with coach Ljubomir Vranjes, with whom he worked in Flensburg:
– I talked to coach Vranjes of course. He told me good things about the club. With those ambitions that Veszprém has it is difficult to say no. It will be a big step for my family, to take a journey away from almost home, from Flensburg. We are ready and I am ready to give everything. I heard a lot about Veszprém, a lot of positive things. They have a great team. They can compete in the Champions League every year and I will do my best to bring titles back to Veszprém – said Rasmus Lauge Schmidt.
