– I don’t think we have had so many good players in good form ever. In that sense, it has been difficult, says Jonas Wille at a press conference in Trondheim on Monday.

The men’s handball European Championship will be held in Germany from 10 January to 28 January. Norway is in a group with Slovenia, Poland and the Faroe Islands.

Kolstad player Simen Lyse (23) makes his championship debut.

– He has played so well. We just had to find a place for him. He has shown against the very biggest that he has something to do at that level. He is fearless, says the national team manager.

Sander Sagosen is also of course in the squad. He joined Kolstad before the season after a three-year spell in German Kiel.

– Can you say that Sagosen has benefited from coming home to Kolstad? asks the VG national team manager.

– No one has the facts about it, because a very short time has passed. But so far there has been a very good effect and a very good development. The physicality is one thing, but also the role he has in Kolstad: the role of playmaker and finisher. There is a nice balance to it. They have also created a collective where there are several in the squad who have interaction rehearsals, says Jonas Wille to VG.

– The total of that, I think, has made Sander a better player, he concludes.

There are seven Kolstad players in the squad.
