Heiner Brand before WC 1999 about Klaus-Dieter Petersen:

One of the best players in the defense and definitely a team player, who plays handball also with his mind. Isn't sometimes dynamic enough in the offense.
(20.05.99)

Andreas Thiel before EC 2000 about Klaus-Dieter Petersen:

The most experienced player and an important integration person for the team. Has improved his offense play drastically, in defense one of the best players in the world. Stands his man.
(19.01.2000)

Hungary's national coach Sandor Vass

One of the best defense players I know.
