    Great thing for handball! Single, but serious fear – head office in Zagreb under control of Zdravko Gobac, the man who rules behind the curtain. He plays only where he can impose his power and his style of managing he is famous for. He cannot impose his power on THW Kiel, nor any such team, so the region will become his batter-field. One can expect lot of dirty games, corrupted referees, prearranged results and so on, and so on … 🙁
