Ambros Martin and Elek Gábor is the new headcoach team for Hungary

Earlier this week Hungarian Handball Federation has announced that following their decision it has been chosen a new technical staff to lead the Hungarian women national team under the upcoming qualification matches  for the EURO 2016.

The new interimar headcoach team will be formed of Ambros Martin (headcoach of Győr) and Gábor Elek (headcoach of FTC), the assistent coach will be Beáta Siti, who also worked earlier with Karl Erik Böhn at the national team of Hungary.

Hungary will play against Poland, Slovakia and Finland in  EHf EURO 2016 qualifications,  in March and June 2016.

The duty of the new technical staff is to secure the qualification to the next European competition in Sweden, from December 2016.

The mandate of the mentioned staff is only until these games are played, further information about the definitive solution for this position will be announced later.

It will be interesting the way these two trainers will be able to work together, one with Spanish temperament and big master of building defensive systems out of nowhere, meanwhile Elek’s teams are mostly keen of scoring goals. There might be language barriers as well between them, but Beáta Siti has a role here also, I would believe.
