Parisians in the running for the title of EHF Player of the Year

After the Champions League came to a close last week (with Barcelona winning), the EHF has published the list of players shortlisted for the competition's Player of the Year award. Among them are four Parisians...


Our last line of defence had an excellent year in Europe. The Swedish international rose to the occasion at all the major tournaments and gave the opposing attacking lines a slew of bad nights - and Kielce's attack has particularly bitter memories. During the back-and-forth clash between Les Rouge et Bleu and the Poles (35-26), Andreas managed to repel no fewer than 19 shots, among them an exceptional double save to deny Szymon Sicko and Dylan Nahi.


We're talking about the EHF Champions League assists leader. With 80 goal cooked up for his teammates, Luc was at the heart of the capital club's excellent attacking performance in the competition (fourth best attack, with 817 goals). At times, however, our Dutch international turned scorer; a case in point was his seven from nine in the 35-31 win over Zagreb. In total, he leaves the competition with 55 goals from 17 appearances.


Putting together an all-star team in 2024 without Elohim Prandi would appear to be a complicated task; our left-back has made life difficult for all his opponents. Able to score from beyond the nine-metre line with breathtaking power, Elo' has also used his finesse to score closer from closer in. Among his 87 European goals this season, several were goal of the season contenders, thanks to their fan-favourite spectacular nature. In the match against Kolstad (28-28), he managed to hit the net ten times, including once with his back to goal!

Unsurprisingly, Kamil Syprzak also appears on the list of contenders. How could it be otherwise? The Polish international has quite simply had an IN-CRE-DI-BLE European season! In fact, he was top scorer in the Champions League with 112 goals. Among his main victims was Szeged (37-33); the Hungarians were no match for Kamil, who scored ten times from just 12 attempts.
