Rumor: Strlek to Veszprem
Written by: Rasmus Boysen
According to the handball website Balkan-Handball.com the Croatian national player Manuel Štrlek joins the Hungarian top club Telekom Veszprém in the summer of 2018.
Yesterday the Polish Champions League winners Vive Kielce announced, that the Croatian left wing Manuel Štrlek leaves the club, when his contract expires in the summer of 2018 (read more here). Furthermore, the Polish champions revealed his successor, the Spanish left wing of Naturhouse La Rioja Angel Fernandez Perez (read more here).
Next season the left wing legend of Telekom Veszprém, Gergő Ivancsik, allegedly leaves the club in favor of the League rivals Balatonfüredi KSE and is replaced by the Macedonian left wing of Rhein-Neckar Löwen, Dejan Manaskov (read more here).
Also, the French national player Kentin Mahé, who also can occupy the left wing position, joins Telekom Veszprém in the summer of 2018 (read more here). It probably means, if the rumors of Manuel Štrlek also joining the ambitious Hungarian club in the summer of 2018 is true, that the current 1st pick on the left wing Cristian Ugalde, who has a contract that expires in the summer of 2018, at that time is past in the club.
Manuel Štrlek joined the Polish club Vive Kielce in the summer of 2012 from RK Zagreb. Last season he won the Champions League with the club. Štrlek has furthermore played 122 caps and scored 429 goals for the Croatian national team.
