Thierry Omeyer extends his contract
A two-time Olympic champion (2008, 2012), a quintuple World Champion (2001, 2009, 2011, 2015, 2017) and a three-time European champion (2006, 2010, 2014), the Frenchman will play his fifth and final season in a Parisian shirt in the 2018-2019 campaign.
Named as the IHF's Player of the Year in 2008 and even as the greatest 'keeper in the history of handball, the man from Mulhouse will then join the Club's technical staff, working with the senior team, the youth academy and the youth teams.
While playing for the Rouge et Bleu, Thierry Omeyer has won three consecutive French league titles (2015, 2016, 2017), one Coupe de France (2015), one Coupe de la Ligue (2017) and three Trophées des Champions (2014, 2015, 2016)."Since my arrival in 2014, I have been very happy at Paris Saint-Germain," Thierry Omeyer remarked after signing his new deal. "I enjoy myself every day and I feel great physically. There was no reason to put an end to this excellent adventure. On top of that, the Club has given me an opportunity to be involved in its long-term development once my playing career comes to an end. That's a particularly attractive challenge."
"I'm thrilled to see Thierry extend his deal with the Club," underlined Paris Saint-Germain General Manager Jean-Claude Blanc. "Thierry isn't just a crucial part of our squad, he's also a shining example of longevity and success at the highest level in any sport. His wealth of experience is a great asset for him as a player and will also be crucial when he joins the technical staff."
