At today’s meeting, the Croatian Handball Federation’s board of directors voted to postpone the Croatian Championship until May 26. Among the 11 board members who opposed this decision, the only one was Nexe Chairman José Ergovi Qi (Josip Ergović). In addition, it is said that the game must be completed before June 27.
The Našice Club has now commented on the decision. They said that the decision was made “in accordance with the requirements of the RK PPD Zagreb and Zagreb Handball Federation”.
“We are totally dissatisfied with the decision of the Croatian Handball Federation to postpone the 24th Premiership of the Croatian Handball League to May 26. Unfortunately, I am the only one who opposes this decision. This is for the Football Association, the club. And the players have been training hard throughout the season and accepting the risk of being infected by the corona virus is not good.” Ergovic said in a statement.
“Like all other clubs, the health of our players is at the forefront, but playing 12 games within 30 days is harmful. Championships will not be played in related indoor and team sports (such as basketball, volleyball or futsal). Interrupt. In addition, I emphasize that the SEHA league matches will be played at the same time,” he wrote below and concluded:
“So, based on everything we know, we can conclude that behind this decision are personal special interests. Some clubs’ contracts will expire on May 30, and the Premier League may continue with a fickle squad. It is absolutely unfair to them. In any case, we still believe that RK Nexe will exert its strength in this field.”
