SPORT1 commentator Stefan Kretzschmar wrote; “The Final Four of The German Cup is always a great celebration of the handball family. This year’s final was one of the best, most exciting and fascinating finals in the history of the Final Four. Both teams have played and fought great. Congratulations to the unfortunate losers SC Magdeburg who experienced an unprecedented upswing this year. But of course SG Flensburg-Handewitt deserved to win the cup. The Flensburger have broken the spell. If you lose four times in a row, it created a certain sympathy. Coach Ljubomir Vranjes is an impeccable guy who gives everything for the team. And his boys go through fire for him.”
