DHamburger SV parted ways with his coach Tim Walter after a good two and a half years. The management of the club, which finished third in the second Bundesliga, led by sporting director Jonas Boldt, decided to immediately continue the game without leaving the 48-year-old player on the sidelines. The club confirmed this on Monday morning. The decision was initially reported by Sky TV channel.
The six-time German champions have already failed five times in their attempt to finally return to the Bundesliga. After the sporting failures of the last few months, HSV management obviously sees the danger of not achieving its big goal this season.
Before Christmas, Walter was already on edge. He then received another clear order from sporting director Boldt and sporting director Klaus Costa to stabilize his team. However, eight goals conceded in the first two home matches of the new year against Karlsruhe (3:4) and Hannover 96 (3:4) showed that the coach was unable to do this.
Walter moved to HSV in the summer of 2021. Over the past 40 years, Hamburg has only had three coaches with a longer tenure: Ernst Happel (1981–1987), Benno Möllmann (1992–1995) and Frank Pagelsdorf (1997–2001).
