Sivertsson fired, Helle Thomsen takes over Sweden again

The reason of firing Thomas Sivertsson is internal criticism, unsatisfied handball players (who told during WCh that they miss the earlier head coach, Helle Thomsen) and an unexpected  negative result in the quarterfinals against Denmark at the World Championship in December 2015.

Helle Thomsen was the head coach for Sweden in the EURO 2014 in Hungary-Croatia and in that tournament Sweden got the bronze medals eventually.

“We want to get the best possible out of the team and we believe that has found a solution that allows us to regain energy and power, and bring out the potential, the team has, says the head of coaches in Swedish handball federation, Lasse Tjernberg.

Sweden will participate in a qualification tournament fro the Olympics, Helle Thomsen has to lead the team to Rio.
