Written by: Rasmus Boysen
According to the Danish newspaper JV.dk is the Danish League side KIF Kolding København trying to sign the former Champions League winner Olafur Gustafsson.
The former SG Flensburg-Handewitt and Aalborg Håndbold-player, Olafur Gustafsson, is according to JV.dk about to sign a contract with the former Danish champions KIF Kolding-København.
28-year-old Gustafsson is a Icelandic left back. He has a hard shot and is a good defender. Since his departure from Aalborg Håndbold a little over a year ago, he has been playing for the Icelandic club Stjarnan, where he has tried to get his career back on track after a time with injuries.
According to JV.dk it has not been possible to get a comment from KIF Sports Director and assistant coach Lasse Boesen, but last week he rejected JydskeVestkysten that he had heard from Olafur Gustafsson. However, JV have learned that the interests of the parties are mutual.
Gustafsson came to the German top club SG Flensburg-Handewitt in 2012. He managed to play 50 matches and score 40 goals for Flensburg in the Bundesliga. He was also in the club when the team won the Champions League in 2014. Since then he played two seasons in Aalborg before signing a two-year contract with the Icelandic club Stjarnan in 2016.
Gustafsson has played 22 caps and scored 43 goals for the Icelandic national team.
28-year-old Gustafsson is pairing with the new player of the Danish Women League club Team Esbjerg, Rut Jonsdottir.
