"He has a hold of some fine players, but we lack some units."
Such is the assessment from Conny Hamann-Boeriths about Klavs Bruun Jørgensen's national team before the WORLD cup in Kumamoto.
She was even a part of 'The iron ladies', who in the 1990s swept all resistance aside and pulled several medals back home to Denmark with, among other Anja Andersen as one of the major profiles.
Conny Hamann-Boeriths stopped his career in 2001, but it does not mean she does not follow, and she assesses that the players on today's team is 'very equal'.
"We need those who can make it wild. I don't think it will be mega easy for them," she says about this year's finals, where the first five opponents are Australia, south Korea, Germany, Brazil and France.
"There's nothing else than just to get by. I know that will work well in the clubs. The ones are just not in the queue. We may in our society have done something wrong by always having to hold them down, when they should be allowed to flourish, I do not know. But right now we have them not right," says the former midfielder, who estimates that Klavs Bruun Jørgensen's crew in the good days is in the top-six.
She believes in, they can be with, if all the frames level. At the same time 'it can also go very wrong', if they do not do it, says she on the national team, which, however, she has confidence.
"You can't make on on themselves. One must be honest to themselves, and I think also, most of them are. It would also look bloody stupid if they went out and did some things that are not realistic. You must be true to themselves, and so they must play the handball, they think is the right thing, and follow the direction, Klavs want," says Conny Hamann-Boeriths.
She, by yourself, where draining the finals are. The body and the head is running at full pressure, and after a battle it takes hours to land.Mind running, and many players also have an internal struggle.
There are always things that could be done better, and even though they may have played a good match, is it the bad things that can easily come in the focus. And after the match waiting for the press so, while it's all running on high pressure.
"It's part of the job, and that you need to know. You will need to deliver the goods also outside of the track. It is there that they sell themselves best of all. It is to be humble and say 'it is just, I must make up for these things'."
"But it is not easy. You dumber also some times say some things, you should not have said. You must be sharp when you are sitting there," says Conny Hamann-Boeriths, who today works as a teacher at the 'gold mine' in the Ikon.
Soon the final whistle blew and in time, and even though it will be played in the middle of the day Danish time, she has in mind to follow along with.
"I hope they surprise and give it gas. I think a top-eight would be a super location for us this year, for the pot is uphill. We also end up in a new ugly pool without easy matches," says Conny Hamann-Boeriths about the possible mellemrunde.
