Before the relegation second leg against Stuttgart, the former HSV stadium announcer Lotto King Karl speaks up – and doesn’t give coach Tim Walter a good hair. He continues to be confident.

In the internet forums, a few hours before the kick-off of the HSV relegation second leg against VfB Stuttgart on Monday evening, the big topic is still: what kind of guy is HSV coach Tim Walter – and is that good or bad for the team and their promotion goal. Lotto King Karl also has a firm opinion on this – and he is not on good terms with Walter. “In a certain scene, Tim Walter’s beatification has already left the borders of our solar system,” said the former stadium announcer and anthem singer of the second division soccer team in a “” interview. Lotto King Karl, real name Gerrit Heesemann, sang the song “Hamburg, meine Perle” before every Hamburger SV home game for 14 years.

“He embodies a type of coach who gets on your nerves at some point and wears himself out,” said Heesemann about Walter. “I don’t like this way of kicking balls away from opposing players and using 25 percent of my physical energy to work on the fourth official.”

The Hanseatic League lost the relegation first leg 3-0 in Stuttgart. “To be honest, VfB should have won this game 6-0 or 7-0,” said Heesemann. Should HSV score an early goal in Hamburg’s Volksparkstadion, it is “in the end a question of mental strength who wins”.

The scolded Walter also relies on this. “The guys have already taken some backlogs and we kept getting up,” he said. The 47-year-old recalled the 3-3 win over 1. FC Heidenheim in February, where HSV was 3-0 down over 70 minutes. “We have comeback qualities,” said Walter. As a possible bargaining chip he sees the sold out Volksparkstadion with 57,000 spectators. “First of all, the goal is to score a goal,” said Walter. Then the stadium would “definitely go along too”. Of course, it is clear that the gap of three goals is large, “but we are trying to work our way forward bit by bit”.
