HSV striker Hinterseer released for negotiations – sale to Ulsan Hyundai?

Kevin Keegan (1977 for € 1.17m from Liverpool)

A transfer the likes of which the Bundesliga had never experienced before: HSV caused a sensation when Kevin Keegan was signed in the summer of 1977. The ambitious Hamburgers, who for their part have just won the European Cup Winners’ Cup, paid a transfer fee of 2.3 million D-Marks (equivalent to around 1.17 Million euros) to Liverpool FC. But the captain of the English national team, like the entire team, disappointed in the first season and was also homesick. That should change in the second season, when “Mighty Mouse” scored HSV with 17 goals for the first championship title since the Bundesliga was founded. Keegan, who was twice named Europe’s best footballer, was by then the idol of all fans – and has remained so to this day. He left HSV in 1980 after losing the final in the national championship cup and missing the championship in the direction of Southampton.

Rodolfo Cardoso (1997 for 1.5 million euros from Bremen)

It was only 20 years later that Keegan’s internal transfer record was to be broken – and then twice within a few months. At first it was Rodolfo Cardoso who cost more when he signed up in May 1997. 1.5 million euros were transferred to the competition from Bremen after the Argentine playmaker had previously completed a season on loan at the Volksparkstadion. In the following winter, the injury-prone Argentine was supposed to be given back, but there was no club that wanted to pay the transfer fee requested by HSV. So it went home twice on loan, before five seasons in the jersey with the diamond followed from 1999. Cardoso has been a coach at the club since 2005, with interruptions.

Anthony Yeboah (September 1997 for € 2.15 million from Leeds)

On September 24th, the Argentine was finally replaced by Anthony Yeboah after a long squabble. After 34 months, the two-time top scorer from his time at Eintracht Frankfurt returned to the Bundesliga for a transfer fee of 2.15 million euros. The reason for the delayed signing of the Ghanaian from Leeds United, about whose true age there had always been speculation, was his tax debts with the Hanau tax office, which he had to pay before his return.

In terms of sport, the Hamburg’s record investment did not pay off at first; in his first year on the Elbe, the attacker disappointed most of the time. That changed in the 1998/99 season when he scored 14 goals in the Bundesliga. The top earner also impressed the following season before things went downhill again. Nevertheless, Yeboah stayed until the end of 2001 and in the meantime caused a stir by arbitrarily extending his expiring contract by one year after the club had not previously done so. At the turn of the year 2001/02, it was finally agreed to terminate the contract prematurely.

Marcel Ketelaer (2000 for EUR 2.8 million from Gladbach)

Even before that, in the summer of 2000, HSV broke its spending record twice again. After moving into the Champions League, Marcel Ketelaer, who had previously shone in the 2nd Bundesliga at Borussia Mönchengladbach and was considered one of the greatest talents in German football at the time, was signed up. However, the winger was unable to meet the high expectations. Ketelaer only stayed in Hamburg for two seasons and was unable to secure a regular place during this time. Initially on loan, the winger finally returned to his training club in Gladbach, followed by a permanent transfer in 2003. Of the transfer fee of 2.8 million euros that was once paid, only 650,000 euros flowed back to HSV.

Milan Fukal (2000 for 2.9 million euros from Sparta Prague)

The move from Milan Fukal, in contrast to Ketelaer, was under bad omens from the start. The Czech hesitated a long time before he agreed to transfer to Germany and initially refused on the grounds that he did not want to expose his pregnant wife to a move. At the end of August the national player finally agreed, HSV transferred 2.9 million euros to the financially troubled Sparta Prague and supposedly found the reinforcement they were looking for on the defensive. But Fukal was never really happy in Hamburg, for a long time bore the stamp of a bad purchase and was only a regular in the 2002/03 season, which the club finished fourth. In summer 2004, like his predecessor, he moved on to Mönchengladbach.

Jörg Albertz (2001 for EUR 5 million from the Glasgow Rangers)

Great expectations that were not met – this also applies to the next record transfer in HSV history. Jörg Albertz showed strong performances in the Hanseatic city between 1993 and 1996, which he could not build on after five years with the Glasgow Rangers. In his first season after his return, the 5 million purchase was still a regular when he was fit, before he was retired by then coach Kurt Jara after four appearances in the second season. “I left when I was in Hamburg for the first time, this time I was expelled,” he said when he left in March 2003 and was the first German professional to move to Shanghai Shenhua in China. He is said to have received a severance payment of EUR 1.3 million for the termination of the contract.

Bernardo Romeo (January 2002 for € 5.62 million from San Lorenzo)

With Bernardo Romeo, Albertz’s successor came to Hamburg in January 2002 in terms of record replacement. The striker from Argentina showed his qualities in front of the opposing goal from the start, scored a total of 45 goals in 88 games during his time at HSV and is one of the most effective goalscorers in the club’s history with a rate of 0.51. However, the goalgetter also often dived, then had hardly any game shares and a poor duel rate. In the first half of the 2004/05 season he finally lost his regular place, new coach Thomas Doll also said that Romeo would not fit into his system. So it was first on loan to Mallorca in winter, followed by the final separation in summer 2005. Osasuna paid a transfer fee of 1 million euros for the services of the eliminated striker.

Vincent Kompany (2006 for 10.5 million euros from Anderlecht)

When Vincent Kompany was brought in in the summer of 2006 for the record sum of 10.5 million euros, the then Champions League participant seemed to have landed a real transfer coup. At just 20 years of age, the defender had already played more than 100 professional games for RSC Anderlecht and was considered a much sought-after top talent internationally. After bad luck with an injury in his first season, coach Huub Stevens increasingly used him in defensive midfield in the second season, which the Belgian didn’t really like. There were then major differences and public accusations the following summer because of his participation in the Olympic Games. Kompany was only allowed to play at the beginning of the tournament in Beijing and had to return to the club against his will early. His departure shortly before the end of the transfer came as a surprise to many. The nouveau riche Manchester City grabbed where Kompany, who, according to the then President Bernd Hoffmann, did not meet expectations in Hamburg, became a club legend in the following years.

Rafael van der Vaart (2012 for 13 million euros from Tottenham)

The majority of the HSV fans were delighted when their club brought the “prodigal son” Rafael van der Vaart back to the Elbe on Deadline Day in summer 2012 with the help of investor Klaus-Michael Kühne. The Dutch playmaker had already delighted fans between 2005 and 2008 and should put the club back on the road to success after a disappointing season. An undertaking that the 13 million dollar purchase and his teammates only managed in the first year, before two years of tremors in the relegation games against relegation followed. Increasingly, the star player’s advancing age was noticeable, his contract was no longer extended in the summer of 2015 and van der Vaart went to Real Betis Sevilla on a free transfer. He later described his return to HSV as “not the smartest step”.

Filip Kostic (2016 for 14 million euros from Stuttgart)

&copy imago images

For the last time, HSV broke its own transfer record in the summer of 2016 to break Filip Kostic away from VfB Stuttgart, who had just been relegated to the 2nd Bundesliga. In the poker for the services of the Serbian winger, they prevailed against VfL Wolfsburg, among others, but in the end had to transfer 14 million euros to the Swabians. Kostic did not fully do justice to the high transfer fee, in 65 competitive games he only managed 15 direct goals. After Hamburg’s historic first relegation in 2018, he quickly made it clear that he wanted to leave the club and even refused to be called into the squad at the beginning of the season. The search for a buyer who brought in a similarly high transfer fee was tough – and ultimately ended with a big minus from HSV’s point of view. Initially loaned to Frankfurt for 600,000 euros, Kostic flourished there, so that the previously agreed purchase option of 6 million euros turned out to be a bargain for the Hessians.

Case Bakery: New Questions for Investigators – Sports

At Hamburger SV, splinter groups often fight for their concerns, both in the inner circle of the club and in circles of the supporters. In the so-called “Jatta case”, however, there is no question of this, there is great agreement among those responsible and observers. The wave of outrage on the Internet was correspondingly large as the commentator on the pay-TV channel Sky during the broadcast of the second division game of HSV at 1. FC Nürnberg (1: 1) on Saturday, revealed his assessment of the matter. “Maybe the problem with Bakery Jatta is that you keep trying to find out whether he is actually the Bakery Jatta he claims to be,” said the commentator. It was hot on social media, like in the days before.

Last week it became known that the University of Freiburg had received an order from the State Criminal Police Office in Hamburg: A researcher from the Institute for Biological Anthropology is to prepare an expert opinion in which the movements of Jatta and a Gambian footballer named Bakary Daffeh are compared. Jatta is under investigation because, according to the allegation, he allegedly came to Germany in 2015 as a refugee under a false identity. Already determined again, one actually has to say: The investigations had meanwhile been stopped. Neither a house search nor a check of account movements and electronic data carriers could substantiate the suspicion. The responsible ministry of Gambia had also confirmed Jatta’s identity in the meantime.

Letter from a “Community of Concerned Citizens”

The fact that the investigation was resumed is apparently due to a letter from a “Community of Concerned Citizens”, as an anonymous group calls itself. The letter, which the Hamburg public prosecutor received last year, contained a criminal complaint against Jatta, Hamburger SV, the then HSV coach Dieter Hecking and the German Football Association (DFB) for allegedly covering up the illegal identity exchange. The anonymous citizens did not introduce any new information, but referred to the continuous reporting in the picture-Newspaper, which is also believed to be the first to cast doubts about Jatta’s identity. The Hamburger Abendblatt had reconstructed the connections, Jatta’s lawyer Thomas Bliwier also confirmed the events to the SZ.

So now the scientific opinion. According to Bliwier, who calls the prosecution’s vehemence in this matter “absurd”, the motion analysis compares, among other things, YouTube videos by Daffeh from 2012 and current material from Jatta. Not only the HSV community and the lawyer are amazed by the investigators’ approach. The Hamburg left-wing parliamentary group has submitted a small question to the citizenship, in which 18 individual questions are asked: among other things, on the costs, proportionality and the interest in prosecuting the investigation. At the request of the SZ, the Hamburg public prosecutor’s office refers to the “principle of legality”, which obliges investigators to “investigate all criminal offenses with the evidence available”. In the “Jatta case”, the existing video material.

The first thing she had picture reported on the motion analysis commissioned by the University of Freiburg – as well as on an initial report by the State Criminal Police Office based on a photo comparison, which showed a match of 98 percent. The SZ has excerpts from the LKA report. There it is explicitly stated that the “findings are not defined as numerical probabilities”. Instead, categories are formed. Jatta and Daffeh are therefore “very likely” to be the same person. However, with one not inconsiderable restriction: the comparison with a “person who can be confused about looking alike” could “also lead to this result,” they say. The 98 percent match of which the picture reported, are “so wrong,” says lawyer Bliwier.

Everything, just no coincidence: How HSV slipped into the crisis | NDR.de – Sport

Status: December 6th, 2020 12:43 p.m.

Hamburger SV has not been able to stop the downward trend of the past few weeks in the second division north duel with Hannover 96. The 0: 1 bankruptcy came about unhappily. And yet it was typical of a team that kept getting in its own way.

by Hanno Bode

The memory of (bygone) better days boomed from the loudspeakers of the Volksparkstadion after the final whistle. The song “Hey HSV” from the rock band “Abschlach!” was played while coach Daniel Thioune gathered his people in the team circle. “The wind blows from the north. We are the power of the Elbe, every child knows that,” says the song, among other things. Now the reality looks completely different with the six-time German champion.

HSV, whose last title win was in 1987, has not been a “power” in German professional football for a long time.

AUDIO: HSV slips out of promotion ranks after bankruptcy against 96 (1 min)

The former European championship winner is also tormenting himself in his third season after relegating the Bundesliga to the second division for the first time. After the third bankruptcy in a row and the fifth game in a row without a win, Hamburg has slipped out of the promotional ranks for the first time this season because they again lacked concentration and greed in the previous weeks.

The crisis began with Vagnoman’s dropouts

At the beginning of the genesis of the crash from first to fourth was a hair-raising positional error by youngster Josha Vagnoman in the game at Holstein Kiel a month ago, which led to the 1-1 equalizer in the last minute. In the subsequent duel with VfL Bochum (1: 3), Hamburg then showed their weakest performance of the season and invited the guests to score goals through disastrous defensive behavior. In the encounter at 1. FC Heidenheim, the Thioune-Elf even lost a 2-0 lead.

The goal to 2: 3 a few seconds before the end of the day fell after a mistake by the goalkeeper Sven Ulreich, who was brought in with praise and who has not yet been the hoped-for reinforcement.

Woe if Terodde doesn’t score …

Against Hanover, despite the early (and stupid) yellow-red card against Sonny Kittel (25th), the Hanseatic players braced themselves impressively against the defeat. However, the fact that they did not use any of their top-class scoring opportunities testified on the one hand to a lack of self-confidence. On the other hand, the usury of opportunities was also a sign of how things stand at HSV when their top striker Simon Terodde – as happened around 96 – caught a black day.

It is worth considering and actually unacceptable for a promotion aspirant that the Hamburgers are not able to create danger with a standard situation or a long-range shot.

After the third loss in a row, HSV slipped to fourth place in the second division table. 96 achieved the first away win. more

The HSV has a standard problem

Incidentally, this is not a new phenomenon among those who were once “insurmountable”, who are now threatening to become “insurmountable”. Even in the preseason under veteran coach Dieter Hecking, resting balls were – to put it mildly – not one of the team’s strengths. And HSV has also “saved” the susceptibility to standards against itself in the new series. The goal against 96 was exemplary: Baris Basdas was not attacked at all with his header extension after a corner kick.

That Khaled Narey got the ball to his knee and involuntarily passed it on to the goal scorer Hendrik Weydandt was bad luck, but somehow also symbolic of the recurring defensive sleepiness in Hamburg.

“We did not crash”

Despite the rapid crash after his dream start on the Elbe with five wins in a row, Thioune is still far from publicly questioning the mental and athletic quality of his team. Instead, looking at the ranking, in which HSV is only two points behind first place, he stated soberly: “We didn’t crash. We weren’t shaken off. We didn’t fall off. We may be currently in troubled waters . It is up to us to change that. “

Thiounes starting XI was a puzzle

The Hamburgers will have the next opportunity to do so this coming Saturday (1pm, in the live center at NDR.de) in the away game at Darmstadt 98. The smock, which looked listless from the start against 96, has to expose against the “lilies”. Why Thioune set up the often phlegmatic noble technician against Hanover from the start and instead put top template man Manuel Wintzheimer on the bench, was a little puzzling to the outsider.

Time of experimentation over

In general, the Thioune team only got a grip after Kittel saw yellow-red and inevitably had to modify the 4-2-3-1 system originally prescribed by the coach. Even with his changes, the coach was not always right in the previous weeks. Sometimes they changed the statics of the games in a direction that was not to his taste. “Ultimately, we and I will be measured by results,” said Thioune after the Hanover bankruptcy.

The time for experimentation – the 46-year-old seems to be aware of this – is over for him.

New money rain? Investors are knocking on the Bundesliga

German professional football is looking for new sources of income in the crisis. Apparently the DFL is planning to get investors on board. There seems to be great interest. It’s about 200 to 300 million euros.

Dhe meeting is scheduled for Monday morning. And as in previous months, if there was something to be discussed, discussed or decided, the 36 invited participants will connect by video – this is how it is with conferences for the most part in Corona times.

The German Football League (DFL), under whose roof the 18 first division and 18 second division clubs operate, has invited the clubs to a meeting. In addition to the recently heavily controversial distribution of TV money, there is also another economically very important point on the agenda: Apparently the DFL is planning to sell subsidiaries to investors. It is said that DFL boss Christian Seifert wants to inform the club representatives. It is explicitly about the sale of shares in the DFL subsidiary Bundesliga International GmbH.

Since there will be less money from the marketing of media rights from the coming season, the Bundesliga needs new sources of income, because from the coming season there will be less money to be distributed from the marketing of media rights. A few weeks ago, the DFL Presidium, which comprises nine members and meets with the 36 club representatives one day before the meeting, is said to have discussed investor offers for a subsidiary of DFL GmbH for the first time.

In any case, the interest of financial investors in getting involved in German professional football seems to be great. As the “Financial Times” reports, more than 20 addresses from the private equity camp have asked the DFL. Private equity are equity investments that are acquired in non-listed companies. The newspaper names around 20 investment companies such as Advent International, Apax, Ardian, Apollo, Bain Capital and BC Partners.

Secret meeting in Frankfurt

In Italy, the Italian Serie A cleared the way for the sale of a ten percent stake in the company for its media rights and will receive 1.7 billion euros in return.

According to the “Financial Times”, shares with a volume of 200 to 300 million euros are to be sold in the event of a possible investor deal, whereby the company would be valued at more than one billion euros. One of the goals of Bundesliga International GmbH is to install an online payment system to distribute Bundesliga games worldwide. Most recently there was talk of an app with which the DFL could directly market the moving images in some markets.

At the meeting of the clubs on Monday, however, the future distribution of the TV money will also be discussed. The DFL Presidium also wants to discuss this on Sunday – and then provide information. Most recently, an open dispute was sparked about it in the league, which culminated in a secret meeting of top officials from 14 Bundesliga clubs and the second division club Hamburger SV. The four Bundesliga clubs FC Augsburg, Arminia Bielefeld, 1. FSV Mainz 05 and VfB Stuttgart were not invited. The quartet had previously positioned itself on the question of the future distribution of the TV money and publicly advocated a new regulation.

VfL Bochum shoots Düsseldorf – and displaces HSV

2. Bundesliga

The Ruhrpottklub won the Monday night game against the Bundesliga relegated team – and thus underpinned its ambitions for promotion. Now HSV has lost out.

VfL Bochum clearly won their home game against Bundesliga relegated Fortuna Düsseldorf. At the end of the Monday evening game in the Ruhrstadion it was 5-0 for the host. The goals were scored by Danny Blum from the penalty spot (6th minute), Robert Tesche (58th), Robert Zulj (73rd, 74th) and Milos Pantovic (90th + 2).

Fortunas Kristoffer Peterson saw the red card before Bochum’s first goal for an emergency brake with no chance of the ball. In the 84 minutes that followed, the Düsseldorf team had significant problems when they were outnumbered and hardly got any relief moments outside of their own half.

“We know that we can play good football. But the work is done first. We delivered a good team performance,” said Zulj and added, looking at the jump to second place: “The table is a snapshot.” Düsseldorf’s goal scorer Rouwen Hennings, on the other hand, was served: “It starts badly for us. It is again in the away game that we have a red card and a penalty against us. That is bitter. That doesn’t make it easier.”

Bochum takes a long time before it can convert superiority into something countable

After the red card, Rösler switched from three to four defensive chains. Although the Bochum team had a lot more possession of the ball, they were unable to capitalize on their excess for a long time, despite some chances. The agile Blum (29th) missed the greatest opportunity to make it 2-0 before the break when he ran up to Fortuna goalkeeper Florian Kastenmeier, but hit the ball over the goal. Düsseldorf pulled back a long way and developed little risk of scoring with occasional counterattacks.

Even after the change, VfL dominated, but initially did not have many opportunities against the massive defensive. Often the game forward was too slow and cumbersome. In addition, Kastenmeier proved to be a sure source of support and was also on the post with a deflected Blum shot (57th). Only one minute later, Tesche found the gap after a Blum corner and scored the 2-0 redeeming for VfL. After that, the Bochumers played the game to the end and even increased it with the double hit from Zulj and the hit from Pantovic.

HSV professional Terodde “would have loved to play 10 years at VfL Bochum or VfB Stuttgart”

Role models Müller & Reus

Simon Terodde, record scorer in the single-track second division, was under contract with six first and second division teams in his career. For the veteran, who switched from 1. FC Köln to HSV in the summer, it should have been a few stops less. “When I see a Thomas Müller at Bayern or Marco Reus at Dortmund – that’s a career everyone wants. I would also have preferred to have played ten years at VfL Bochum or ten years at VfB Stuttgart. In the end, that’s what all sides have to want, ”said Terodde on the“ Sport1 ”podcast“ Dear Football ”.

The 32-year-old is initially under contract with HSV until the summer. How it will then continue and whether he will take another path is “difficult to say” for him. “I still have a few years to go. You will see where the path leads. I’m trying to do a lot to ensure that it will be a few more years, ”emphasized Terodde, who, after seven match days, leads the list of goalscorers in the lower house with eight goals.

Terodde in the 2nd attempt at HSV: Team with potential for the Bundesliga

About his free transfer from “Effzeh” to the Elbe, he said: “Hamburg asked me for the second time, once again last winter. It wasn’t a big issue for me back then. I tried to talk to 1. FC Köln. It was signaled to me: No, Simon, we will not hand you over. I totally understood that because I actually didn’t want to leave myself. “

Now the request was there again in the summer. After the talks with HSV “I realized relatively quickly that I would like to do that. For me, HSV was the only option to go to the 2nd league – although VfL Bochum (Terodde’s employer from 2014 to 2016; editor) shouldn’t be forgotten either. (…) Now it was the best decision for all sides to take the step. ”In Hamburg there is a“ team that is capable of development and has the potential to play in the Bundesliga, ”said Terodde.

HSV legend Uwe Seeler in hospital again – daughter gives update

The club icon “Rothosen” had to undergo treatment for a few days this year. Now he suffered another blow to his health.

Again health concerns about football legend Uwe Seeler: The idol of Hamburger SV was taken to hospital on Monday night because of a faint attack with an ambulance. The 84-year-old was first carefully checked through in the Albertinen Hospital in the Schnelsen district.

“Waiting for Results”

The family’s hope that it “is nothing bad” was fulfilled. “Fortunately, the doctors couldn’t find anything. My father is doing well,” said Seeler’s daughter Kerstin McGovern of the Bild-Zeitung: “He will stay in the clinic for another day for observation.” It was only in May that the honorary captain of the German national team fell in his home in Norderstedt and had to undergo an operation on his hip.

Seeler, vice world champion in 1966, had repeatedly struggled with health problems in recent years. Among other things, he was troubled by the consequences of a car accident in 2010, and the former striker had back problems. In 2017, Seeler was successfully fitted with a pacemaker.

40 years ago: Beckenbauer is back in the Bundesliga – sport

33 seconds were played in the second half when Franz Beckenbauer trotted out onto the field, black shorts, long-sleeved blue jersey, white V-collar. On November 15, 1980 – exactly 40 years ago – the world’s most famous Libero actually returned to the Bundesliga. Three and a half years earlier, Beckenbauer had played his last game for FC Bayern, the club that made him great. Then he went over to New York Cosmos to take it easy in America and to increase his bank balance. But at the age of 35, Beckenbauer wanted to prove himself again in the Bundesliga. Not in Munich, however, but at Hamburger SV.

The spectators in the Stuttgart Neckar Stadium applauded in awe when he started that November afternoon. Photographers ran after him – some up to the field. Beckenbauer dribbled skillfully, served his teammates made-to-measure passes, and once he shot the brown ball dangerously on goal. The 1974 world champion often showed an overview, but occasionally also a certain lack of orientation. When he was substituted on, the only one in his 424 Bundesliga games, it was 1-1, in the end the game was lost 3-2 and Bayern took over the top of the table. But nobody later spoke about the botched game, Beckenbauer drew everyone’s attention.

He was still the biggest star of the Bundesliga, European champion from 1972, world champion from 1974, European cup winner of the national champions in 1974, 1975 and 1976. The Kaiser. Shadows would only fall on his career much later, when corruption allegations were made against him at the 2006 World Cup. After the game in Stuttgart in 1980, the television cameras surrounded him. “Of course I was a little scared,” he reported. Hands tucked casually into the leather jacket. The Southgerman newspaper wrote about the afternoon: “Franz Superstar beamed all over his face.” Author Bruno Bienzle judged: Beckenbauer’s cautious first appearance should “not be a reason for skepticism, but certainly not for euphoria”.

“Franz, we’re building an HSV team around you”

Hamburg was already in a state of emergency months before Beckenbauer’s arrival. At a charity match in December 1979, Günter Netzer, who had only recently become a manager at HSV, and coach Branko Zebec noticed that Beckenbauer was still an excellent footballer. Netzer asked the 1974 world champion after the kick: “Would you like to play the Bundesliga again?” Zebec said: “Franz, we’re going to build an HSV team around you.” Cosmos submitted the contract extension to Beckenbauer, but the former Bayern player signed with HSV instead. Why? Beckenbauer himself can no longer say that exactly: “It was a gut feeling,” he once said. What certainly played a role: A sponsor paid for his salary, Beckenbauer earned around one million Deutschmarks per year.

When he floated into the airport in Fuhlsbüttel on October 31, thousands of Hamburgers greeted him. For his first home game, 41,000 fans stormed into the Volksparkstadion – twice as many as usual. Team-mate Felix Magath enthused: “I haven’t seen a player who has such an overview of the game.” Beckenbauer was immediately seeded as the Libero. But injuries got in the way and he had to pause for weeks several times. Once his adductors tore when he kicked a penalty, and once during training the headball monster Hort Hrubesch jumped in the back. He was only able to play 28 Bundesliga games in the year and a half of his Bundesliga comeback, and he didn’t manage to hit one.

“When I was injured, I had the feeling that the whole city was suffering with me,” Beckenbauer once recalled. Indeed it was. An intimate relationship developed between the Hamburgers and himself, it was mutual. Once Beckenbauer, who resided on the Alster, even slipped out that he liked Hamburg better than Munich. After protests from the south, however, he took it back.

In the 1980/1981 season, FC Bayern won the German championship, and HSV did so a year later. Even if Beckenbauer’s share was not as large as hoped because of the many injuries: The 36-year-old resigned from the Bundesliga with a bowl in hand.
