Rot-Weiss add two talents for 2022/23 season

Rot-Weiss Köln have secured the services of German junior internationals Aron Flatten and Jean Danneberg, both Under-21 Junior World Cup medalists, for next season.

Both players are considered major talents in their respective positions, Flatten in midfield and in defense and Danneberg in goal with the latter producing plenty of heroics for Mannheimer HC at the EHL Cup last October.

Rot-Weiss’s vice president of sport, Timo Wess said of the additions: “Both Aron and Jean absolutely convinced us in terms of sport and as personalities with a professional attitude towards sport and training. 

“We specifically chose both players because they perfectly complement our own youngsters. Our goal is to build up the strongest possible squad of players for the time after the 2024 Olympic Games in Paris. 

“Accordingly, we only have the best players on the list because, thanks to our excellent youth work in recent years, we now have enough top talents from our own in the club who can form the team structure of the future at the highest level.”
