Kim Rasmussen will leave CSM Bucharest

Kim Rasmussen - the coach of women's handball team CSM Bucharest will not continue his job as a coach of this team starting from the next season. He could be replaced by Jakob Vestergaard, Jorge Duenas or Herbert Muller. Rasmussen will train the women's national handball team of Hungary.

No official announcement yet.

For now, neither the Hungarian forum nor the Romanian champions have made any official announcement on this issue, but in the two days of competitions of the Final 4 tournament the press center talked a lot about the fact that Rasmussen would remain in the Hungarian capital.


The discussions were initiated long before the final competition of the Champions League. Katalin Palinger, one of the most important figures of the Hungarian Handball Federation has also confirmed the News. Immediately after the final game with Gyor (with the result 29-26 for CSM after the 7 meter throws), Kim Rasmussen didn't want to talk about his future. He said then that he just wanted to enjoy this success and he would talk about the future the next day.


Return to Bucharest.

The team returned to Bucharest on Monday, but nobody could make any plan and no discussions were held. The whole day was occupied with the after-action protocol, including visiting the Romanian President Klaus Johannis and the television appearances. On Tuesday, after things were more settled, the problems began to clarify: Kim Rasmussen will leave CSM Bucharest at the end of the season because he already has an agreement with the Hungarian national team.

The reasons leave to CSM Bucharest.

The Danish coach has been working with CSM Bucharest in the last few  months, but he also trained the Polish national handball team. This double role will not be possible from this summer. The Hungarian Handball Federation made a generous offer for Rasmussen and the offer is over the possibilities of CSM Bucharest. More, the Hungarian Federation wants him to work full-time, with exclusive rights.

In these circumstances, the Bucharest officials have understood the need to find another coach for the CSM team, in order to defend their title in the Champions League in the 2016-2017 season.

Women's handball team CSM from Bucharest won the Champions League trophy after defeating ETO Gyor of Hungary by 29-26 in the Final Four in Budapest.
