Hamburg extends Guerrero’s contract

Hamburger SV have given Peru striker Paolo Guerrero a new

four-year-contract.

The Bundesliga club announced the move on Tuesday while

presenting new coach Armin Veh. Guerrero tore knee ligament in

September, then delayed his return from Peru because of his fear of

flying. Shortly into his comeback, Guerrero was banned for throwing

a full bottle at a fan and missed the last five games of the

season.

Veh signed a two-year contract. He won the Bundesliga title with

Stuttgart in 2007. Veh also coached Wolfsburg as successor to Felix

Magath but was fired in January, six months into the job.

Bruno Labbadia was sacked as Hamburg coach two games before the

end of the season. Hamburg failed to qualify for a European

competition.
