Shortly before the Champions League semi-final almost five years ago called Lasse Svan Hansen's wife. She was pregnant - but had it not go well.
In the interview she explained Flensburg-Handewitt-star, that she had symptoms in the body, which corresponded to the, when she miscarried a year earlier.
- On the Saturday before we play the semi-final, calling Sara and tells that she has the same symptoms as she had at the time, she lost the baby. And it was like the information, I went in and played a semi-final with.
It was a very sad period, we had in our lives at the time, he tells now to TV 2 Sport.
While Sara found themselves in the home in Flensburg, sat Lasse with teammates in Cologne. 600 kilometers to the south. Despite the difficult situation, he chose to play the match against Barcelona.

the Team went on to win the match after extra time and penalties, but We played not well and was pulled out in the course of the 2. half.
It was quite terrible to be in the situation, for I felt I betrayed Sara at home by not being there, and at the same time I had it, also, if I went home, so abandoned I the entire team. It was a very, very unpleasant and awkward situation to be in, he says.
After the fight he took a chat with teammate and friend Anders Eggert. This explained the Lasse that he was in Cologne – and not at home – and just as well could justify it by go in and win the fight.
So had he in the least something to take home.
