the other day, Jacob Holm has thrown it – quite typical for the time of year – a couple of days. The 23-year-old Dane in the service of the Füchse Berlin had to stay with a feverish cold in bed, to sports activities was not thinking. "Actually, it's nothing Bad," said Holm. "I've lost three of four kilograms, and was then a week later back in shape." Back on the football field, said three -, four kilograms but fell actually to the weight, especially for someone like Holm, who has grown in contrast to many modern hand shooting relatively normal and not as a basketball player goes through. "I really noticed that something was missing," he says. "The physical game in the Bundesliga is the biggest change for me."
Basically, Holm had after his exchange in the summer of 2018 little difficulty to get used to the new game class, his new home, and the increased requirements in Germany. In a public criticized for the Füchse Berlin-and-down season, the coach Velimir Petkovic and Manager Bob Hanning repeatedly and effectively, the lack of attitude in the team, Holm is one of the positive phenomena.
Before the away game in Berlin in the MT Melsungen on this Thursday (19 clock, live on Sky) has made the back-room player in his first 23 League matches scoring 91 goals; in the Association's internal Ranking he is in second place behind his compatriot Hans Lindberg (93). However, the Berlin captain also enjoys the privilege of the seven-meter throw. Out of the game Holm has scored more than twice as many goals as Lindberg. "This was a great undertaking, and Jacob deserves each of the praise in the world," says Manager of Hanning. "He does us good, because he is a man who wants to be angry over every mistake and learn from it."
The foxes Holm bought early from his employment relationship
Under normal circumstances, the spar would be changed only in the summer of 2019 from the first Danish League to Berlin, a corresponding contract was already drawn up. Because the foxes had to come before the season with half a dozen injured players, they bought the national players early on for 150 000 Euro out of his existing employment contract with his previous club from Esbjerg.
"An exchange to Germany, to a major League club in a big city, it was always a wish of mine," says Holm. "That's why I didn't have to think long, as the offer was on the table." The satisfaction is based on reciprocity: In the case of the foxes you have invested the money already worse than in the Case of the Holm.
"Because we had so few people, I was from the beginning a regular player. I was thrown into the cold water," says Holm, "but this has helped me extremely." As well as his fearless and carefree. Who observed leg on the football field, sees a brave young man, too many thoughts – and this is explicitly meant to be positive. Player of the semester rarely take so many important, and sometimes complicated, throws as he is.More about

"The best thing is that he still has so much potential," says Hanning. His defensive game is about Holm must work, in order to fulfil a perspective view of the claim of a complete player. "At one point, but we are all agreed," says Hanning. "Jacob can be the next couple of years, the face of our Association."
