Felix Magath wants to hide his glorious past at the second division soccer team Hamburger SV in the relegation games.
“The HSV, that is completely out of the question, is the biggest section of my footballer life. But that doesn’t matter for these two encounters at all! It is still not about me or my past with the HSV. Alone about Hertha BSC – for relegation, “said Hertha BSC coach on Sunday.
The Berliners will meet HSV on Thursday in the Olympic Stadium, the second leg in Hamburg will take place the following Monday (both 8:30 p.m.). “I saw many games in the 2nd Bundesliga, the HSV was with the best team for me,” warned Magath.
The coach followed the victory of Darmstadt 98 against SC Paderborn (3-0) on Sunday, and his assistant Mark Fotheringham was on site during HSV success in Rostock (3: 2).
Magath had shot HSV with a dream goal, among other things, to victory in the European Cup of the national champions in 1983 against Juventus Turin (1-0).
