Swedish national team coach Staffan Olsson put critics on new rules which will be incorporated to the game officialy at Olympic tournament in Rio. Legendary Scandinavian lefthander, silver medalist in coaching role in London 2012, stated for Swedish Radio:
- Handball becomes boring – said Olsson who is convinced that rule of extra-player will change the game as he will be used as second line-player. Tactically, teams will avoid shooting from nine meters, which will be under risk due counter-attacks on free net:
– It will be a very static attacking game where everyone will do everything to avoid mistakes – concluded Olsson.
