Tim Walter should finally lead HSV back into the Bundesliga. The new trainer was introduced on Tuesday.
Tim Walter did not hesitate long. Concerns about failing as the next coach due to Hamburger SV’s “inaccessible”? Did not even appear with the new coach of the former Bundesliga dinosaur. “HSV tried so hard for me and the conversations were so positive that I quickly made up my mind that I want to do it,” said the 45-year-old at his presentation on Tuesday.
Walter is the sixth coach who finally wants to lead HSV, which was relegated in 2018, back to the Bundesliga. From a difficult starting position. Because the competition could become even more powerful in the coming season than last season due to the relegations of Schalke 04 and Werder Bremen.
“We have a conviction in Tim Walter,” said sports director Jonas Boldt: “I assume that not only Bremen and Schalke have the right to be promoted. We have our own right and will look to ourselves.”
Walter is the future leader who should finally bring the favorite to the finish line after three fourth places. The new coach of the Hanseatic League takes over from Horst Hrubesch, who stepped in on an interim basis at the end of the season. HSV had previously separated from Daniel Thioune.
HSV: Tim Walter wants to promote young players
The self-confident soccer teacher from Bruchsal in Baden-Württemberg is facing a tough task. With Christian Titz, Hannes Wolf and Dieter Hecking, different types of coaches tried after relegation and, like Thioune, ultimately failed.
After the 4-0 victory against Eintracht Braunschweig, Hrubesch called for a clear season analysis. “We have a powerful squad, we were a few points ahead in February,” said the 70-year-old: “The question is what do you have to invest then? You have to do more to get better and we didn’t. “
Walter announced that he would quickly seek an exchange with Hrubesch. “It would be negligent not to talk to him,” said HSV’s new hope. From July 23, the start of the season of the second division, it applies to him.
