Hamburg temporarily suspends 2 players

Struggling Hamburger SV has thrown out midfielders Dennis Aogo

and Tomas Rincon from the squad for the upcoming Bundesliga match

against Hertha Berlin because they used two practice-free days for

a trip to Mallorca.

Their brief vacation on the Spanish island came after Hamburg’s

5-1 loss at home to Hoffenheim.

The club says Aogo and Venezuela international Rincon will not

be in the squad for Berlin.

Hamburg’s coach Thorsten Fink gave his players two days off

after the defeat on Saturday.

But the coach says the purpose of the move was not ”for one to

fly to Mallorca but that everyone ponders how he can be


Hamburg has one point from two games and many experts see the

team in danger this season.
