HSV is looking for a successor to three-game coach Horst Hrubesch (70) for the new season. Sports director Jonas Boldt (39) wants to find someone by the end of the month.
There are mind games about Nuremberg’s assistant coach Tobias Schweinsteiger (39), who worked alongside Dieter Hecking (56) in the Volkspark in the past series.
That’s not a bad solution – thinks Lothar Matthäus (60). In his Sky column, the record international (150 internationals) even goes one step further.
Hermann Gerland (66) at Schweinsteiger’s side!
After 30 years at FC Bayern Munich, Gerland will leave until 2022 despite a contract.
Matthew: “Wouldn’t it be a nice story if the tiger would work with a Schweinsteiger again?”
With Tobias Schweinsteiger’s brother Basti, “he got along really well,” said Matthäus. World champion Bastian Schweinsteiger worked successfully with Gerland for many years at FC Bayern.
Matthäus cannot imagine that Gerland will now “retire”: “Over the years he has been priceless and as valuable as few at FC Bayern.”
And further: “In the end, all the great coaches have benefited more from Gerland’s eye, experience and instinct for this club than most are aware of. Whether van Gaal, Guardiola or Heynckes. They all raved about him. “
Maybe HSV will soon be raving about a duo Schweinsteiger / Gerland …
