The bronze medalist of the VELUX EHF Champions League 2016/17, Telekom Veszprém announced in a statement on the club’s official website that Aron Palmarsson didn’t appear on today’s training of the team, therefore, the newly arrived head coach Ljubomir Vranjes won’t count on the Icelandic playmaker for the rest of the season.

The preparation has just started in Veszprém but Palmarsson has already left the team: the Icelandic world class sent a message to the coach that he won’t appear on the training session and will travel back to his native country Iceland instead. The head coach Vranjes and the club have found Palmarsson’s behaviour unacceptable and according to the announcement of the club, Telekom Veszprém will make all the legal steps to give the hardest possible financial punishment and ban for Aron Palmarsson. According to Vranjes’s philosophy, “a professionally thinking player can’t prefer his own interests against his teammates”. Therefore, Vranjes won’t count on Aron Palmarsson in his team any more.

Palmarsson was already rumoured to leave Veszprém and join Barcelona this summer, but as said in the club’s official statement, as Palmarsson still has a valid contract until summer 2018, the both clubs agreed that Palmarsson will spend the upcoming season in Veszprém and after the season 2017/18, he will join Barcelona. The gossips also say that Palmarsson’s pregnant girlfriend would prefer living in Barcelona. Maybe the couple won’t have to wait one more year to move to Spain…
