Finished. The end.
The 41-year-old legend, Michael V. Knudsen, has decided to stop his career after this season.
It informs his club, Bjerringbro-Silkeborg, Monday in a press release. Thereby thank one of the great Danish håndboldkæmper soon.
"I've had some wonderful experiences with håndbolden and all the teams I have played on. Back when I started with håndbolden in HOH85 over Viborg HK, Skjern Handball, SG Flensburg-Handewitt and Bjerringbro-Silkeborg as well as on the selected team, such as kredshold, jysk team, Y-team, D-team and the A team," says the former landsholdsstreg.

In 2014, he returned to BSV, where he has been since. The decision to set his career he took last year.
"Even if the body still has it's good and I feel fit, so I had expected that the body would one day say stop," says Knudsen, and continues:
"It is not the case, however, and I can still run with the young people, so I'm thinking actually that I could have continued, until I am 50. However, I want to set different priorities and look forward to new exciting challenges and projects."
In the first place though, he is a halvsæsonen back in BSV, in the past.
