Two weeks ago we informed that the PGE VIVE Kielce right-winger will leave Kielce after the 2019/20 season. Blaž didn’t officially announce the direction he would take next season, but now it's all clear – the Slovene will represent Barcelona. Last summer, Luka Cindrić left for the Catalan team.

Blaž Janc is playing in Kielce for the third season. Since his first appearance in the club he has been one of the most outstanding players, very versatile, bringing a lot to both attack and defend, where he plays the 1 or 2 position. In our city, Blaž quickly won the hearts of fans with his cordiality and dedication on the court. Currently, the winger is staying outside Kielce, undergoing rehabilitation related to the injury of his left shoulder.

The Slovenian winger will be bound by a contract with Barcelona until 2024. However, as he stressed in an interview we conducted two weeks ago, he will always have our club in his heart and does not rule out returning to Kielce in the future.

Interview with Blaz Janc

Blaž's place from next season will be taken by the Icelandic winger, Sigvaldi Gudjonsson, currently representing the Norwegian club Elverum Handball. His contract will be valid for one season for the time being, but President Bertus Servaas hopes to extend it.

We wish our winger every success with his new team! Meanwhile, until the end of the 2019/20 season we play together in yellow—white—and—blue!
