Hamburg Back Trained Labbadia
Hamburg – Hamburg SV’ve got coaches remain. Die Rothosen back seat entrusted to the coach Bruno Labbadia, who once they are fired.
Labbadia has agreed a contract duration of 15 months with Hamburg. The 49-year-old man replaces interim coach Peter Knaebel. Knaebel, who became coach after firing Joe Zinnbauer Hamburg in March, will return to his position as director of sport.
Before appointing Labbadia, Hamburg had approached former Mainz coach Thomas Tuchel. However, the process of negotiating with Tuchel deadlocked.
While still active as a player, Labbadia never defended Hamburg in the period 1987-1988. He later coached the club in the 2009/2010 season, but only lasted for ten months before being fired.
“We decided to take this step because we consider the question of the coach is the most important,” said CEO of Hamburg, Dietmar Beiersdorfer, on Sky Sports.
“Together with Bruno Labbadia, we now have a tough coach, who is also experienced in the fight to avoid relegation,” said Beiersdorfer.
Hamburg is currently immersed in the bottom of the Bundesliga standings with 25 points from 28 matches. They were within four points from safety with six games remaining.
“We can not waste time. Every point is important for us and I am glad Hamburg had great support from the fans. Because we have to be a single entity until the last game,” said Labbadia.
