The Swiss backseat player has been playing for the North Baden team since 2010 and is Germany’s handball player of the year 2017: “I can’t imagine wearing another jersey than the lion’s in my career. I want to end my active career at the Rhein-Neckar Löwen,” said Schmid. In summer 2010 he changed from the Danish first division club Bjerringbro-Silkeborg to the Lions.

“With Andy as our playmaker, we will be relying on tried and tested world class on the Rückraum Mitte in the coming years.
