Löwen has found Gensheimer replacement?

Uwe Gensheimer is counting the days until the summer when his player career comes to an end. According to Löwen local news paper Mannheimer Morgen the replacement player may have been found.

In december 2021 Uwe Gensheimer prolonged his contract with Rhein-Neckar Löwen until summer 2024. Now Mannheimer Morgen informs that the new kid on the block has been found: Tim Nothdurft.

The 26-year old left wing plays for Bergischer HC where he has adapted well since joining from boy hood club HBW Balingen-Weilstetten in 2022. Nothdurft has scored 39 goals in 49 shots so far this season. He has also been named in the German squad list for the EHF EURO 2024 alongside Rune Dahmke (THW Kiel) and Matthias Musche (SC Magdeburg).

One particular strenght in his game is defense where Nothdurft also can play on the half position, freeing up space at the far position.

Rhein-Neckar Löwen also have Lion Zacharias and David Móré at left wing but also on expiring contracts this summer.

There are also rumours about Löwen calling for a press conference on Friday to announce the signing of Nothdurft but also keeping Gensheimer at the club as a Sports Director.
