Anne Mette Hansen, a star of Györ in Metz next season

It’s a huge blow that Metz has just made on the transfer market. On Friday, the Lorraine club announced the signing for next summer of Danish star Györ Anne Mette Hansen (1.85m, 28), captain of the great Hungarian club and considered one of the best left backs in the planet.

“She is certainly the greatest player who has been brought to join Metz Handball, enthuses coach Emmanuel Mayonnade, who just renewed his lease for one year. Most of the great players who played in Metz took on a different stature from the moment they wore this jersey. Anne Mette arrives with an already really existing CV, including a crazy European and international experience. »

“It’s an arrival that shows how intact the club’s ambition for next season will be”

For Thierry Weizman, the Messin president, “It’s a historic transfer for the club. This is the first time that a player has traveled from Györ to Metz and left the most prestigious club in the world to sign with us, who used to lose our flagships who joined foreign clubs. It is a huge recognition of the work done. »

The Scandinavian has signed up for two seasons. She will replace without a very different register, more powerful and less explosive, the Brazilian Bruna de Paula, who will do the opposite. “She’s a player who can do almost anything with the ball in hand, describes Mayonade. She is able to score goals from 9 and 10 meters, in suspension, through, she is very powerful and can overflow on both sides, she plays with her close partners and is also a very good defender. It’s an arrival that shows how intact the club’s ambition for next season will be. »

In 2023-2024, the Dragonnes will therefore align the rear base of the Danish national team, vice-champion of Europe, with also the half-center Kristina Jörgensen, who arrived last summer, and the right-back Louise Burgaard, who has been evolving in Moselle since 2019 and which has just extended.

“I am really happy to join Metz, a very good club with a family spirit, said Anne Mette Hansen on the club’s website. The team is one of the best teams in France and Europe, which corresponds well to my ambitions: I want to win. »
