"Cornelius has been at the top of our wish list for several years and it is really a big satisfaction that we have finally managed to get him to Skanderborg. It is a player we see a very big development potential in and an important piece in our goal here in the club to move higher up the rankings in Danish handball," states Sports Manager Torben Væver in a press release from Skanderborg Håndbold.
"My former teammate Morten Balling has confirmed the impression I have of Skanderborg. A club in the best sense of the word with an inspiring training environment, a strong youth work and a lot of volunteers who works hard. I am so rounded about such an environment, so it gives an additional motivation. After two seasons with experience and learning in Skjern, it was important for me to make the right choice. I have a really good feeling with Skanderborg and the club's ambition to get into the top 8 in the coming seasons," says the 22-year-old Dane, who had offers from clubs both at home and abroad before the election fell on Skanderborg.
The former Danish youth national player got his breakthrough in the Danish club Nordsjælland Håndbold.
