As Handball-Planet.com exclusively finds out, one of the tallest handball players and certanly, one of the best left back of the World, Danish star, Nikolaj Markussen (25) will continue proffesional career in Qatari military club – Eljaish, immediately! Member of Spanish side BM Atletico Madrid was a target of ambitious Qatari handball for a while. He had an offer to play for their NT a few years ago, but he refused. Now, situation has changed. Spanish team is in deep financial crisis and Qatari League gathering more and more quality players from Europe.
Markussen is already in Doha, where he signed two years contract with Eljaish, team who fight for the Championship. In Play Off six teams are playing for the title.
Obviously that means BM Atletico Madrid will fight for the EHF CL F4 with F.C Barcelona without one of the best players…
Montenegrian left back Stevan Vujovic (23) has also signed contract with Eljaish. He came from RK Lovcen Cetinje.
