Hannes Wolf will probably also sit at the last season game on the bench of the Hamburger SV – but then fall with great probability the cleanup after the failed resurgence.
"We will first talk to Hannes Wolf and then about him," said CEO Bernd Hoffmann at a media round in Hamburg. Under the 38-year-old Wolf, who still has a contract until 2020, the HSV has mutated in recent weeks from winter champion to the deranged non-climbers of the 2nd Bundesliga. According to Hoffmann, a decision on his whereabouts should be taken calmly, but quickly.
In the past 22 years, the Hamburg worn 23 coaches. Hoffmann really wants to break this "cycle of horror". "The exchange of individuals makes it better in the short term, but has no lasting effect," said the 56-year-old. Nevertheless, it is very likely that Wolf sat on Sunday against the MSV Duisburg (15.30 / Sky) for the last time on the bench. To disastrous was the second half of the season. Wolf would only have been in office 209 days later.
Each individual area in the overall construct HSV should now be scrutinized, every single stone turned around. Hoffmann: "Everyone has to see that he is doing his best. We can not afford to see HSV as an oasis of well-being. "
The 56-year-old, who has been working for the second time since May 2018 as CEO, does not look forward to it. External help is also sought. "We do not get a couple therapist," said Hoffmann. The view from the outside, however, is logical and absolutely necessary after the "superfluous non-rise of football history".
At the goal of resurgence, the CEO states: "Second league is not negotiable in Hamburg," said Hoffmann. Economically, he sees no difficulties: "We got the license for both leagues without any problems." The second Fananleihe 17.5 million euros was well placed and also with patron Klaus-Michael Kuehne one agreed.
His recently voiced criticism of Wolf described Hoffmann as justified. «I have repeatedly discussed the need for a change of coach. The lack of willingness to act of the relevant committees was fatal in my view », the entrepreneur, who holds 20.57 percent of the shares in the HSV football AG, announced on Monday.
For the sold out game on Sunday against the relegated MSV Duisburg Hoffmann does not expect security problems. «How the fans are with us is unbelievable. That was most likely to be federally eligible, "he said. Although individual fans had made use of the right of return for their already purchased tickets, but at the same time were also more cards have been requested.
