In the relegation match against Karlsruher SC ( 2: 1 ) did not succeed the hapless Hanseaten to solve the coveted ticket to the second- highest league. Especially embarrassing: Even last season failed HSV similarly scarce. His coach chair wobbles concern: Labbadia HSV captain Rafael van der Vaart gave himself contrite after the game: “This is of course bitter if it opted for an entire season on something and then fail at the last moment.’ Van der Vaart but are also competitors blame for the failure of Hamburger:’ In a normal season 35 points may be enough to qualify directly for the second division. But at SC Freiburg and at Paderborn was just no getting past.’
At the end it was enough for the HSV despite numerous coaching change again only for 16th place
No wonder that it rumbles at the base. Many fans give Marcelo Diaz and Nicolai Muller, who scored both goals against the HSV- KSC, or keeper Rene Adler to blame for failing to qualify.
