Hanning: "THW play in another galaxy"

He is one of the masterminds of the success of Füchse Berlin: Manager Bob Hanning has led this team from the second German division to the VELUX EHF FINAL4 in Cologne.

ehfCL.com: At the VELUX EHF FINAL4 in Cologne you will face THW Kiel in the semi-final. What hopes do you have to reach the final?
Bob Hanning: It is more than zero per cent, but our dream had been to face Atletico Madrid because I believe we would have had a chance against the Spaniards.

ehfCL.com: So you think your chances of beating Kiel are low?
Bob Hanning: THW Kiel play in another galaxy compared to us. They have gone unbeaten all season, so we cannot compare Füchse and Zebras.

ehfCL.com: But you have played really well yourself just to get to the VELUX EHF FINAL4 in Cologne?
Bob Hanning: It was an incredible situation for us, reaching the VELUX EHF FINAL4 after we had lost the first leg of the quarter-finals at Leon with a deficit of 11 goals. So we can continue our dream in Cologne. The team deserves to be at the VELUX EHF FINAL4, because all the players fought so hard for success.
