Hamburg (dpa / lno) - In the end of the season, Horst Hrubesch is in a good mood on his difficult promotion mission to the second division soccer club Hamburger SV.

«It was fun from the start.

Even with the guys, even if one or the other was blocked and didn't believe in himself somewhere, "said the temporary coach on Friday and reported on a change:" If you see that now in training: You have a whole different speed in the game, also the mood among each other is completely different. "

At the moment, the team had "appropriate communication".

A week and a half ago, the 70-year-old moved from the position of HSV youth performance director to the coaching position of the second division team until the end of the season.

Previously, the hapless Daniel Thioune had been on leave.

Hrubesch should still manage the promotion in the third second division year of the Hamburg.

He made his debut with a 5-2 win against 1. FC Nürnberg.

HSV now has two more games to get to third place and qualify for the relegation.

This requires victories on Sunday (3.30 p.m. / Sky) at the table penultimate VfL Osnabrück and a week later against Eintracht Braunschweig.

At the same time, the current third Greuther Fürth has to blunder.


"There will be two games: Sekt or Selter," said Hrubesch and warned: "I know the Bremer Brücke in Osnabrück - you don't get anything for free."

Stephan Ambrosius (torn cruciate ligament), Aaron Hunt (torn muscle fiber) and Josha Vagnoman (strain) will not help.
