Now it seems that the ambitious Danish club has found Henrik Jakobsen's successor. According to the usually reliable Danish newspaper Fyens Stiftstidende the choice has fallen on the Swedish pivot Oscar Bergendahl.
Oscar Bergendahl has since 2014, where he left his Swedish childhood club HK Aranäs, played for the Swedish top club Alingsås HK. The 22-year-old Swede has furthermore previously been an integral part of the Swedish youth national team. In 2014/15 he played in the Champions League.
GOG, who at the moment is placed 2nd in the Danish League, has besides Henrik Jakobsen also the two Danish pivots Lars Hald and Torsten Laen in the squad. Torsten Laen has a contract which expires at the end of the season, while Lars Hald has a contract to the summer of 2020.
