We made plenty of omissions and technical errors in the essential phases. When we have been on the lead at 21:20, we obtained a really unlucky timing penalty that broke our neck.

What makes you hope that the primary level in Saturday’s house sport in opposition to TSV Bergdorf III will come in helpful?

Fighting efficiency makes me optimistic. The group is trying ahead to point out our very loyal viewers one more nice efficiency at house. Especially in opposition to the Bergdorf III group we nonetheless have one thing to do after final season’s house sport. I very a lot hope that we are able to lastly present at house what we regularly confirmed in the earlier collection.

Some gamers have left the TV trade and a few have joined. How happy are you with the switch throughout the summer season trip?

It is simply too early to charge all of the gamers after the league sport. Janice Depp and Oliver Bourne are out till the autumn holidays. But you possibly can inform that each of them match very nicely in the group in phrases of character and play their half in the excellent perspective and ambiance already in the group. EK Kretz and Jakob Frolich have already proven nice efficiency. Both will make it to the Premier League, I’m positive. Janik Mitrovic and Devas Eidukonis joined the group very late. Both want a while to get used to. Dewas has solely been in Germany for 2 or three weeks, so at first it looks like loads to the boy. But we are going to assist him, he can be a vital participant on the backcourt.

You have strengthened the group primarily with younger gamers from the area. How is that this group completely different from final season’s group? Was the personnel change profitable?

Firstly, it was crucial for us to have the ability to signal some gamers from the area right here. We need younger, proficient gamers to be acknowledged extra strongly as a membership that provides children an trustworthy probability and time to play. So far we’ve been in a position to do that fairly nicely. And it is nonetheless a precedence, all of us agree on that. But in fact we additionally want success, as a result of it is just by way of victories and factors that we are able to relax and proceed on this path. So I’m trying ahead to the primary difficulty in opposition to Bergdorf III. I might be extremely joyful to have the group and training group led by Marcus Wutke. We all did a fantastic job in preparation.

You have typically emphasised that you prefer to gamers to establish extra with the membership. Has there been any improvement in this regard?

We have already been criticized for one or the opposite personnel choice, imagine me. But handball is a group sport and needs to be drawn all collectively. No participant ought to suppose that he’s extra essential than the group. That’s why we paid plenty of consideration to character perspective whereas signing new gamers and now we give plenty of significance to group spirit and unity.

Is it already bearing fruit?

I assumed it was nice at Lehrte that the gamers went out after the sport and mentioned the sport with the followers. For this purpose I’m cautiously optimistic. However, I’ve been there for a really very long time and subsequently know that we additionally want success and factors for this path. That’s why we ask our followers to help the group on Saturday and forgive one mistake or the opposite in the start.

The final season was not simple for the TV Jahan. They needed to struggle for relegation for a very long time and completed the season in eighth place on the desk. If you possibly can think about it: How are you trying ahead to this season?

I might be very joyful if we achieved exile earlier this time. Then we might plan the 2023/24 season a little bit earlier and convey in one or the opposite participant. But first, let’s take a look at this season and hope that it’ll not be hampered by any influence, equivalent to corona or vitality issues. For me personally, it is necessary that we right here in Duderstadt have extra enjoyable with and establish with the membership. I’m actually joyful when a home Paul coach performs nicely and Janik Bergdorf coaches a youth group as a participant on a Premier League group. This is the explanation why youngsters go in for handball.
