A trio of aces for a season full of challenges
Three cracks for a season full of challenges. Emil Nielsen, Jonathan Carlsbogard and Hampus Wanne were presented this Tuesday at the Ciudad Deportiva Joan Gamper as new FC Barcelona players in an act in which they were prepared to withstand the pressure of aspiring to repeat the successes of last season.
“Yes. There is pressure, but I feel comfortable with it. We have come to win all possible titles” assured Emil Nielsen, who was ambitious despite sharing the goal with a player of the stature of Gonzalo Pérez de Vargas.
“To be the best you have to compete and learn from the best. I’m ready to give my best this season“said the Danish international, who was already committed to Barça for the 2020-2021 season, but could not join until June 30, when he obtained the letter of freedom from Nantes.
Hampus Wanne, signed by Barça until June 2025, faces this new stage with the pride of playing in what, in his opinion, is “the best handball club in history” after his successful spell in the Bundesliga.
“When I started playing for Flensburg I had a series of goals and now, after nine years when a club like Barça calls you, it makes you have new goals I hope to fulfill here as it is to achieve the Champions League again”, explained the player, who has just signed the best season of his career, with 128 goals and 121 assists.
For his part, Jonathan Carlsbogard also stressed that Barça “is the biggest club in the world” and promised that he will give “the best” on his part to win “all possible titles” by placing himself under the command of Carlos Ortega. “Here the boss is my coach Carlos Ortega and he is the one who makes the decisions about the role I should have in the team. Everybody likes to play sixty minutes and All I want is to do my part well on the court and try to give my best every minute I’m on the court”.
So far, the season has started in the best possible waywith the Catalan Super Cup achieved this Monday after defeating Fraikin BM Granollers in the final by a resounding 44-30.
