Handball: MHB announces the departure of Wallinius and the arrival of another Danish left-back

At MHB, a Danish left-back hunts the other. International Karl Wallinius leaves for Kiel, Andreas Holst Jensen arrives from Allborg. Winning bet?

One month before the start of the Starligue, on September 8 in Istres, the MHB is still active behind the scenes in order to draw the outlines of a team characterized by renewal.

Thus, as announced weeks ago by Midi Libre, the Montpellier club formalized this Friday morning the recruitment of the Danish international left-back, Andreas Holst Jensen (27 years old, 2.02 m, 104 kg), from ‘Alborg.

The Wallinius Disappointment

An arrival which compensates – at least numerically – for the departure of his alter ego and compatriot Karl Wallinius for Kiel, who has bought out his last two years of contract.

Wallinius repeatedly has his will to leave. Or I prefer to have a player who brings all his enthusiasm and energy like Andreas

Recruited a year ago, Wallinius will only have made an express return trip to the Hérault. A disappointment in view of his potential, one of the best triggers of the team, while the MHB had high hopes on him. “It’s true, we had bet on him but he had several times his will to leave. But I prefer to have a player who brings all his enthusiasm and energy like Andreas”, justified the president Julien Deljarry.

The club’s fifth recruit

According to the leaders’ press release, this crossover to a position where the Argentinian Diego Simone stands out as the indisputable holder, was recorded in the wake of the internship at Les Carroz d’Arrache, during which Andreas Holst Jensen was tested .

Above all, it testifies, in the year of the club’s forties, to a desire for renewal with regard to the arrivals of Karl Konan (left rear), Giorgi Tskhovrebadze (winger), Rémi Desbonnet (goalkeeper) and star Stas Skube (half- center). Winning Paris? “On paper, yes, largely. We take more risks with Holst Jensen but we were seduced by his technical skills”, commented Julien Deljarry
