Cristina Neagu at risk of forced retirement

Romania’s Cristina Neagu, the world’s best handball player in 2010, has an arm tendon lesion. Oltchim coach Anja Andersen states that unless the player undergoes surgery her shoulder will be finished, Realitatea TV informs. Shoulder pain was the reason why Cristina Neagu played so little after the WC in Denmark.

Anja Andersen kept her on the bench during Oltchim’s Champions League game against Krim Ljubljana and convinced her to undergo extra medical investigations in Brussels and Copenhagen. There it will be decided whether the player will undergo surgery or whether her injury will be addressed differently.
According to ProSport’s Tuesday edition, medical investigations in Romania revealed that the player has a tendon lesion that affects her right arm, the arm she uses to throw the ball. Neagu suffers from a degenerative disease that can grow worse with time, with the risk of her no longer being able to play. Oltchim sources have stated for the daily: “Neagu will see six doctors if need be. We need as many opinions as possible before taking a decision. Cristina is a valuable player and we have to take good care of her.” Coach Anja Andersen is accompanying Cristina Neagu in Belgium and Denmark.
