Arrived in 2012 from AG Copenhagen, Mikkel Hansen, the Danish left-back, will leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of his contract in 2022 and will return to his country, to Aalborg.

A page will turn at Paris Saint-Germain. Indeed, at the end of the contract in 2022, Mikkel Hansen will leave the club which remains on six titles in a row in Lidl Starligue. Arrived in 2012 from AG Copenhagen and at the end of his contract in a year and a half, the Danish left-back, who will be 34 years old next October, has decided to return to his country, where he has signed up for three years with Aalborg. The current Parisian number 24 will therefore have spent ten years at PSG, where he won almost everything. Since his arrival, Hansen has so far won seven French league titles (2013 and from 2015 to 2020), as well as the Coupe de France three times (2014, 2015 and 2018), the Coupe de la Ligue (2017, 2018 and 2019) and the Champions Trophy (2014, 2015 and 2016). All that is missing is the Champions League, he who was a finalist in 2017 with the Parisian club.

While the local media TV2 evoked the return of Hansen to Aalborg this Thursday morning, the club has since formalized the news via a press release. “I can’t wait to come back to Danish handball. Aalborg is a very exciting club which has achieved excellent results on the international stage. I still have great ambitions and I believe that I can help the club to reach a new level in the European level », Declared the person concerned, on the official site of the current 2nd of the Danish championship. “It is one of the greatest days in the history of handball. Mikkel is one of the best players in the world and has been for many years. (…) We have been in rapid development for a long time, and with this signing we are now ready to raise the bar even higher “, For his part explained Jan Larsen, the president of the club, who remains on two titles in 2019 and 2020.
