"After a few years in the League he knows the Danish League very well and brings a lot of routine - he fits perfectly into Aalborg Håndbold," concludes Jan Larsen.
"I am looking forward to a new handball chapter and look forward to starting in Aalborg Håndbold. They have been a continuous top club in recent years, and I look forward to playing in front of the great North Jutland home audience from next season," says Mark Strandgaard.
