Yekaterinburg (dpa) – Ice hockey national player Korbinian Holzer feels comfortable in Russia and would like to stay longer with the automobile company Yekaterinburg.
“Yes, I like it here very much and I would like to stay. In general, the KHL is currently the first option for me compared to other leagues, ”said the former NHL professional in an interview with“ Ice Hockey News ”.
The 33-year-old defender moved to Russia last autumn and plays in Yekaterinburg with former world-class striker Pavel Dazjuk and German international striker Brooks Macek.
“It’s a new experience, a different mentality and yes, sometimes an adventure. Overall, I feel very, very comfortable and it’s a lot of fun: The city is great, and so is the organization. I definitely do not regret taking this step, “said Holzer, who also enjoyed significantly more freedom during the Corona crisis:” In general, it is more relaxed than in Germany. There is no lockdown, you can move around freely and spectators are again allowed in the stadiums. ”According to his own statements, regular tests give him personal security. “And it obviously works,” Holzer continued.
