Handball national player Patrick Wiencek has denounced an uprising of parts of the DHB selection against German trainer Christian Prokop at the EM in Croatia.” We did not fall on the coach’s back,”said the cyclist to the”Kieler News”.
The 28-year-old also spoke of a partly tense atmosphere within the team during the tournament. The mood was bad on different sides, but I wouldn’t say the coach had no authority. We have to talk about everything.”After the early EM-out there was talk of differences between the prose and parts of the team.
Backroom-routines Steffen Weinhold sees the main blame for the weak cuts especially among the players themselves.” If we want to develop further and make progress for the next tournament, we must all ask ourselves what we can do better,”said the 31-year-old.
The German Handball Association (DHB) wants to hold on to Prokop and go with him to the Home World Championship 2019.” I think that Christian Prokop will then be a coach, he still has a long contract,”said Wiencek. The 39-year-old Prokop still has a contract with DHB up to 2022.
