Gedeon Guardiola leaves Erlangen immediately

Defense veteran Gedeon Guardiola joined HC Erlangen as a promising addition last summer. A few months before the end of the season, the Bundesliga club announces his departure and terminate the contract of the 39-year-old.

According to Erlangen´s website, Guardiola´s wish to finish the season in Liga Asobal was granted. Also, the situation with a lot less minutes on the pitch than expected didn’t suit the solid defender.

– It is regrettable that Gede is leaving HC Erlangen again, but we respect his wishes and understand his personal goal of taking part in the Olympic Games, which is why, after intensive consideration, we have decided to comply with his request to terminate his contract, says managing director René Selke to the club webpage.

Guardiola has played for German clubs the last decade, with a significant six-year-stint in Rhein-Neckar Löwen (2014-20).
