I describe myself as a person and coach as a self-motivating coach with a valuable passion for handball and the development of the human behind the player.

In a professional setup, I think I can help to shape the future of a club to a greater extent. In a good organization around the team, with a good atmosphere in the team, I want to ensure that we can develop players and add layers to the club results. Getting better every day, as an individual and as a team. 



My version of handball is very clear in that it is the players' qualities that determine how the style of play is laid out. I have a Swedish background and have worked with Norwegian, Swedish, Danish, Russian and Spanish coaches who have helped to inspire my handball philosophy.

In my team at the time, I played a Spanish-inspired offensive defense with tall 2's, as my 2's are smaller and fast players, where the central defense was more compact. The idea of this type of defense is to get the runs into the 3rd zone and get more shots in the 3rd zone. Switching from defense to counterplay, we run fast to the middle and try to keep the pressure on for approx. 20 to 30 sec. in the attack. The attack is characterized by cross-play, transition, and set-up situations for the qualities of the individual players.

Following on from my work in the past, I love working with young ambitious players in combination with experienced players. Bring the young players further and let them challenge the experienced players. Getting better every day, as an individual and as a team.
