“We were not consistent. Not at the back, not up front. We score the first two goals we concede ourselves in. That was the problem this time. But you can lose against a team like that.”
HSV coach Tim Walter (47) explains after the deserved 4-0 friendly defeat to Bundesliga club 1. FC Köln in front of 4,700 spectators at the Franz Kremer Stadium.
In a 4 x 30-minute match, Husein Bacic (2), Diehl and Schindler scored the goals for the hosts.
After only one week of training, it was clear that his hamburger lacked freshness. “The boys worked a lot this week. You’re really flat. It was a good test for us. Basically, I’m satisfied with the sharpness and the attitude. It’s also not wrong to show us our mistakes.”
Oddly enough, Walter had to do without both left backs against FC. Miro Muhaime, 24, bruised his ankle.
The people of Moheim’s colleague Tim Leybold, 30, seem to be developing even more spectacularly. Leipold, who has been playing for HSV since 2019 and currently has no chance of kicking under Walter, would like to leave Hamburg six months before the end of his contract in order to get more playing time elsewhere.
In order to shape his immediate sports future, the former Nuremberg native stayed on the Elbe. Sports director Jonas Boldt, 40, on Magenta TV: “We’ll discuss how things go in the next few days.”
Walter on the subject of Leibold: “Today Timi had special things to take care of. That’s why he wasn’t there. We always said we’d talk to each other at the right time.”
It is likely that the former HSV captain will soon appear in the USA in MLS. There should be left foot interest there.
