Albertsen and his once-in-a-lifetime opportunity
Martin Albertsen likes being a trailblazer. The 49-year-old Dane, who had to quit playing handball at the age of 22 after a severe injury, started his coaching career quite early and had already arrived on the coaching staff of Viborg HK by the age of 25. In the 2003/04 season he was head coach of the women’s team – and won the treble of Danish league, Danish cup and EHF Cup. Then he moved to German club HC Leipzig and earned more domestic silverware.
