With his second brace in the second game, Simon Terodde indicated that he can meet the high expectations at HSV. His two goals in the 4-3 victory in Paderborn were goals 121 and 122 in the 222nd second division game. Nobody has met more often since the introduction of the single-track second Bundesliga in 1981; Until the “big” second division goal record of the Hanoverian Dieter Schatzschneider, Terodde is still 32 goals short.
Impressive facts – which, however, currently do not interest him at all. “Maybe in five or ten years you can sit in the party room with your boys, drink beer and think back to it. I didn’t think about it for a second during the game,” said Terodde on the “Sky” microphone and added: “In the end it is An empty phrase: The team is in the foreground. It’s nice when the guys help me score goals with strong assists. “
Thioune: “Terodde is extraordinary”
The modest words of the 32-year-old show that HSV did a lot right with the much-criticized transfer. Too expensive, too old, a discontinued model – that is how Terodde was judged when making the commitment. The striker, who scored only three times in 23 Bundesliga games for 1. FC Köln last season, is now showing his critics and is credible when he says: “I want to play a very, very good season with HSV. There I’m really up for it. ” For Daniel Thioune “it can go on like this”. The HSV coach praised Terodde exuberantly: “He works very hard for the team and what is remarkable, he is very calm. He is extraordinary.”
Contract beyond 2021?
In “Sport Bild”, Thioune had already explained why he immediately had a good feeling when the 32-year-old was signed: “I didn’t just look at his vita, I also wanted to know how Simon Terodde works I would not have accepted it if he had said: “I know how it works. Put the balls in from the outside, I’ll do the thing.” I wanted someone who could identify with us – including the football we play want to leave. We quickly agreed. ” You can see “that he is 100 percent involved with HSV”.
If Terodde only comes close to his second division hits in Cologne (29), Stuttgart (25) and Bochum (25), which earned him the top scorer cannon, he could use it to shoot HSV into the Bundesliga. An extension of the contract beyond the coming summer would probably only be a matter of form. And the attacker would then have the opportunity to improve his rather manageable first division quota (ten hits in 58 games) and thus to silence the critics who deny him the Bundesliga suitability.
