Danish spectators at the EHF EURO 2010 give 100% of their effort to help their national team at the road to the Final, but this way of supporting don’t like vice president of EHF and director of EHF EURO 2010, Jean Brihault, full of prejudices about Balkan sports fan:
– For the first time I have during Euro competition experienced a Danish audience, who protesting against opponents. It is Balkan-style, and it does not fit the Danish mentality. I would not urge the Danish audience to go in that direction now, “Jean Brihault according spn.dk.
From an idealistic perspective, DHF-director Morten Stig Christensen totally agree with the French vice president of EHF.
– I think that Jean Brihault”s fear from the Balkans, where you sometimes have fear and violence, but it will never happen in Denmark.
Danish national coach, Jan Pytlick, doesn’t agree with Brihault:
-I simply don’t understand it. The atmosphere is fantastic and it is a part of the sport to be away from home. I have experience with Danish team away and things were 20 times worse -said succesfull Danish coach.
We have to ask mister Christensen, when he discovered violence and fear at the Balkans? Maybe at World Cup 2009 in Croatia, which was the best organised handball event ever with some standards which Scandinavia, with full respect, will never reach.
