The Norwegian goalkeeper had been injured on the eye in the away match at the Rhein Neckar Löwen and since then suffers from limitations in vision. At short notice the 262- time Spanish NT goalkeeper José Hombrados committed in lending probably his last job as a goalkeeper.
The 41 year old, like Magnus Dahl and Ivano Balic ,had played until the end of last season in the top Spanish club Atletico Madrid and since the insolvency of the Atletico Madrid at third division BM Safa under contract.
Hombrados ( 1.97 m , 98 kg) since last week is for the first time in Wetzlar and started training with the team .
“I, Ivano and Magnus – are invariably positive about the HSG Wetzlar, their managers and the fans – except for the incredible flood of injuries. That’s why I choose to come to Wetzlar to help in this difficult situation for the club personnel . Of course for me it is also exciting to play again in the DKB Handball Bundesliga “, said the handball world champion from 2005 , four times Champions League winner and six-time Spanish champions .
Hombrados will wear the jersey with the number 16.
