What are Johan Hansen’s net worth, salary, and brand endorsements?

Jóhan á Plógv Hansen, a Danish handball player for SG Flensburg-Handewitt and the Danish national team, was born in Faroese on May 1, 1994. He has previously played for the Faroe Islands national team. However, because of the Danish Realm’s organizational structure, Greenlandic and Faeroese athletes are free to choose the National team they want to play for. Johan Hansen’s desire to play for the Danish national team were met with a two-year ban from international handball because he had previously played for the Faroe Islands national team. Ulrik Wilbek, a former national coach of Denmark, said he hoped and wished Jóhan Hansen would change his nationality so he could play for the Danish national team.

At the age of four, Hansen began playing handball with the Faroese team Kyndil in Thórshavn, where he was trained by his aunt Marjun á Plógv. Like his aunt, he played goalkeeping until he was ten years old, at which point he switched to playing right backcourt. In addition to playing handball, he was a football player with Havnar Bóltfelag and was selected for the Faroe Islands U15 national team. He ultimately continued with handball. After being chosen to enroll in Skanderborg Håndbold Elite Academy in 2010, he traveled to Denmark not long after turning sixteen. Johan Hansen signed a three-year contract with Bjerringbro-Silkeborg on March 3, 2015, to join the team for the 2015–16 season.
