Kreuzer: We can do better
There are still five weeks to go before the start of the 2013/14
Bundesliga season, but Hamburg’s director of sport Oliver Kreuzer
has already lost his patience with his team.
Speaking after Hamburg lost 2-0 to Wacker Innsbruck in a
pre-season friendly, Kreuzer warned his players to pull their socks
up, otherwise they risk another uphill start to the season after
making one of their worst starts on record last year.
“You can’t just think that we’re coming to Austria for a short
break and having a light workout against an Austrian first division
side,” he said.
“As a Bundesliga side, it’s not on to present yourselves like
this. I hope this was the last time.”
Anybody who does repeat such a lackadaisical performance my find
themselves on the transfer list, according to Kreuzer, who is
looking for excuses to lower the wage bill.
“Our priority is to reduce the size of our squad,” he added on
