There are great players in the team, I've played against them several times at national level. The South Korean championship is still going on, but I'm really looking forward to playing in Győr from the summer," Ryu Eun Hee said.

With her we are strengthened by a tireless, combative, determined, versatile player. She can be used in all internal posts is it’s necessary. We also observed her performance at the 2020 European Championships in Denmark and she performed very well. During the negotiations she gave an impression of a professional athlete, not only a sympathetic player, but also a great fighter so I can announce that, like Ryu Eun Hee, we have signed a two-year contract with her" said Dr. Csaba Bartha.
"We didn't have to introduce ourselves because I knew Győri Audi ETO KC well, not only the club, but also the players, because we played against each other a lot. Obviously, if you get on offer from the best team in the world, you don't have to hesitate too much. After a great year in Debrecen, I accepted the offer of the Audi ETO in order to take another step forward in my career. I'm looking forward to working together from summer, but of course in the meantime I'll do everything I can for Loki in this season," said Jelena Despotovic.
