National player Juri Knorr apparently wants to leave the Rhein-Neckar Löwen. According to a media report, the 23-year-old is set to take a job in Denmark. Apparently personal reasons also motivated the country’s best handball player to leave.

According to a media report, national handball player Juri Knorr is planning to say goodbye to the Rhein-Neckar Löwen. The 23-year-old has agreed on a change with the Danish top club Aalborg Handbold and wants to leave the North Baden Bundesliga club after his current contract expires in the summer of 2026 at the latest, the “Bild” newspaper reported on Monday.

Knorr was quoted as saying: “I won’t say anything about that at the moment.” An earlier transfer of the backcourt player is also conceivable for a corresponding transfer fee, it was said. A transfer fee in the mid-six-figure range would be due anyway, regardless of whether Knorr leaves this summer or next. The Danes’ coach for the new season will be the former coach of SG Flensburg-Handewitt, Maik Machulla.

“Bild” reports that the middle man is looking for a way abroad because he is not satisfied with the sporting development of the Rhein-Neckar Löwen. The Lions have fallen far short of expectations in the Bundesliga season so far and are currently only eleventh in the table. In the European League, the DHB Cup winners reached the quarter-finals and will face Sporting Lisbon at the end of April.

In addition, Knorr wants to escape a bit from the hype that has arisen around him in Germany and also the pressure that is on him in the club and the national team.
