The defenses of Liqui Moly Starligue have not finished being dizzy: Luc Steins (27) has extended his contract for two seasons with PSG. The half-center (1.73m), with an atypical profile, so confusing in a world of handball with XXL templates, arrived in the capital in November 2020 as Nikola Karabatic’s medical joker. The Dutch international stumbled into the French Championship, in the Proligue at Massy in 2016-2017 before following the then coach, Benjamin Braux, to Tremblay-en-France, for two seasons. In the summer of 2019, Toulouse had recruited the brilliant leprechaun then poached by PSG.
This month, Luc Steins has been named Liqui Moly Starligue’s Most Valuable Player for the second year in a row. He is also in the standard team as a centre-half. “I am very happy to extend this beautiful story with Paris Saint-Germainsaid Luc Steins in a press release from the French champion club. “The season that has just ended has been rich in emotions, with in particular this incredible record of 30 wins in 30 matches in the league and the coronation in the Coupe de France. I am very honored by the trust granted by the club. I can’t wait to give it back to him by being as efficient as possible on the pitch and by winning many trophies with the team. » Its extension comes the day after the announcement of that of Kamil Syprzak, the Polish pivot.
