In the past few months, HSV has established itself in the top group of the 2nd Bundesliga under coach Tim Walter. On the Elbe, hopes are growing that they will finally make it back to the House of Lords on the fourth attempt. If you believe captain Sebastian Schonlau, then there are no signs of a possible crash so far.
After 18 match days, Hamburger SV is in third place in the table of the 2nd division. Actually a positive interim result, which at the same time awakens bad memories of the past three seasons. Between 2019 and 2021, the Hanseatic people always wintered far ahead, but in the course of the respective back series they always tried to get the reward for their efforts.
That should change now – and the conditions for this are good, says Captain Sebastian Schonlau. “I’m not at all worried that we will lose our way and that we will no longer play our dominant football. Our coach also makes sure that that doesn’t happen,” the 27-year-old clarified in an interview with “Sport Bild” .
Coach Walter had “emphasized that the past is a thing of the past,” added the central defender, who, in his opinion, has “a lot has been going right at HSV so far”.
HSV: Schonlau affirms Rummenigge’s assessment
The former Bayern and BVB professional Michael Rummenigge valued the situation in the “Sports buzzer“recently. According to the 57-year-old, Hamburger SV currently has” the best team in the second division in terms of playability “and will be promoted.
Praise that Schonlau gladly accepts. “I am a fan of our football because we find playful solutions and attack our opponents early. I would therefore absolutely agree that we play a very attractive football,” said the defender, commenting on Rummenigge’s opinion.
