Transfer bomb on the handball market. Cristian Ugalde Garcia joins MKB Veszprem, and signed a three-years contract. After Veszprem hired the first-ever Spanish coach in Hungarian club handball history, Antonio Carlos Ortega, now the club signed a contract with the first-ever Spanish player in Veszprem handball history! The 24-year old Barcelona left-winger plays for Barcelona since 2004, and has been growing into a key-player as years passed. He was also important part of the team’s success in winning Champions League in 2010/2011 season, as well as regaining the Spanish ASOBAL Champions league title these two past season, after 4 years of Ciudad Real domination.
Barcelona’s signing of Stranovskiy might have played a role in Ugalde’s decision to join Veszprem.
