Now he has had enough

MALMÖ (Ekstra Bladet): He formed fists, as the triumph was a reality. Gudmundur Gudmundsson cried out against the handball court, he had treated as a skakbræk during the entire competition. Saturday evening, Denmark had no response.

Gudmundsson got his rematch. Although he himself refuses to use the word. For the former Danish national coach is actually tired of talking about the vendetta. Again and again.

He was not even reached in the locker room after the purge, before the questions once more came from the attendees of the press. About the past. On a chaotic exit.

- We've moved on. I will not continue to talk about it. I am happy to work with the icelandic team. I have seen how that has been written about it in several places. But for me, it's not about revenge. I'm here to get good results under the EM-finals, says Gudmundsson.

- of Course I have a knowledge of the Danish team. I have trained it until 2017. And I've seen Denmark play in the same way in the defense, says Gudmundur Gudmundsson. Photo: Lars Poulsen.
And he has scored. A genuine shock result. More had probably expected or feared that the Island would be able to tease Denmark. But, Aron Pálmarsson supplied, approached the direct bullying of a Danish defensive, which was in big trouble throughout the fight.

10 times the icelandic star in the outbreak, and it did hurt at Denmark. The defense broke too often. And in the first havleg the performance of Niklas Landin and Jannick Green just three saves - to together!

So it is hard to win håndboldkampe. But conversely easy to explain the triumph in the second camp. The knowledge of the Danish defensive played of course a crucial role in the Gudmundssons coup, he points out.

- of Course I have a knowledge of the Danish team. I have trained it until 2017. And I've seen Denmark play in the same way in defense. They used to be able to do it under me, and they did it also during the WORLD cup. Of course, it has helped in the preparations. I know the players and the way they play. This time it went up, but it is not easy. It is a great team, he says.

But Gudmundsson is also a great trainer. The position is in any case not to misapply, en Ekstra Bladet took place among the icelandic fans immediately after the match.

They are wild with their Gudmundur, which, according to the supporters of the status as an icon on the volcanic island. I am of course national coach, whose crew has been in eruption on top in group E.

- I'm very proud of it, and it pleased me immensely that they look at it, says Gudmundsson.
