Season 2010/2011 is on the way and we want to take a closer look on handball transfer market in last three months. We chose 10 largest and most interesting transfer between handball teams all over Europe. Even if is German Bundesliga the richest and the best Liga in the World of Handball, the most interesting transaction in our oppinion is move of Kiril Lazarov from C.O Zagreb to Ciudad Real. This is a list…
TOP 10 handball transfers of summer 2010
1. Kiril Lazarov (30, C.O Zagreb – Renovalia Ciudad Real) 125.000 EURO transfer fee
Macedonian biggest sports star will finally take a participation in some serious European League. Because of his playing in Hungary and Croatia, despite his phenomenal atacking skills and scores, many of handball people didn’t want to admit that Lazarov is the best right back atacker in the Globe. Now, after his move to Spain is real moment to see “whether or not”. It will be interesting to see, how he will find himself in the team full of stars.
2. Michael Kraus (27, TBV Lemgo – HSV Hamburg) 300.000 Euro transfer fee
A lot of speculation stories was made about this guy in last two years and finally, after his move to HSV, all of them coming to the end. “Golden boy” of German handball, best playmaker of German national team and big hope of handball people in most handballlest country in the World, now will have a chance to show his full potential without excuses about lack of motivation because of missing Champions league, stronger games, etc. HSV wants just trophies and Kraus has to bring them as a soldier from the “first row” near Duvnjak.
3. Ivan Cupic (24, Gorenje Velenje – Rhein Neckar Lowen)
It’s a time for Germany to see magic of Ivan Cupic. Small guy from Metkovic with big heart after knee ligament surgery and injury when he stayed without half of the finger, keep his performances high, to high to catch contract with one of the biggest team today. RNL need some “winning mentality” in they want to compete with THW Kiel and HSV Hamburg. “Crazy Croat” is right person for that…
4. Mikel Hansen (23, F.C Barcelona – AG Copenhagen)
There must be a strong reasons when some player leave the biggest club in history of handball, maybe of all sport, F.C Barcelona and back to his country, Denmark. That’s done strong left back, good shooter, Mikel Hansen,who spent in Catalonia just two seasons, with one final of CL competition. Obviosly, offer of rich sponsor Kasi Jesper was so good and project of Danish club at the TOP of CL.
5. Viktor Silagy (32, VFL Gummersbach – SG Flensburg)
Real rapsody of handball is when on the court you see Viktor Silagy. Fantastic season in Gummersbach and National team of Austria is behind him and now it’s time for Champions League in t-shirts of SG Flensburg. One of the best atack organisers, slow but danger, for sure can play at the highest level.
6. Milutin Dragicevic (27, BSV Silkeborg – THW Kiel)
One of the strongest player in handball today, “Hercules” as called him Danish fans, best player and also a scorer of Danish championships move to THW Kiel to show his full potential at the biggest stage. With his motivation and sports culture, he is unbeatable.
7. Mirko Alilovic (25, Ademar Leon – Celje Pivovarna Lasko)
Young goalkeeper with a lot of experience, after a few years in ASOBAL is back to Balkan. Celje Pivovarna Lasko with Noka Serdarusic on the bench atract a lot of players. Good voice is hearing far away. Alilovic just now coming in the best phase of his career and Celje will enjoy.
8. Johan Sjostrand (23, SG Flensburg – F.C Barcelona)
With Scandi goalkeeper is hard to miss. One of the most tallented is Sjostrand, as we saw in his junior age with Sweden, when he won WC title and after in Flensburg. Probably, long and succesfull era in “Blaugrana”.
9. Joachim Boldsen (32, F.C Barcelona – AG Copenhagen)
As Hansen, also Joachim Boldsen decided to back to the country and start with a new project in AG. With 32 age and a lot of trophies (Denmark won EURO 2008) he has to be satisfied and relaxed until end of career.
10. Petar Metlicic (35, Ciudad Real – Celje Pivovarna Lasko)
He wanted to stay in Ciudad Real, but Dujshebaev wanted some refreshment on his place. Famous captain of Croatia, left Spain and between Zagreb and Celje, took Slovenian team, probably, because of lower pressure than in “proud of Croatia”, as we know that C.O Zagreb is some kind of national team.
