This is me: Joan Canellas

Joan Canellas. A two-time EHF EURO champion. A world champion and an EHF Champions League winner. Joan has seen it all and won it all on the court. Yet his career could have been oh so different.

In his own words in our latest series of interviews exclusive to EHFCL Weekly subscribers, the legendary Spain international reflects on his career choices and sheds a light on what it takes to be one of the handball greats.
