Slomka stunned by ‘crazy’ contest
Hannover coach Mirko Slomka enthused about the “crazy game”
which his side won 3-2 against Werder Bremen.
Szabolcs Huszti inspired the Lower Saxony side to victory with
two goals – the second an acrobatic winner in stoppage time – and
one assist, but he saw a red card for his celebrations which will
rule him out of Hannover’s next Bundesliga game.
He said: “There were five goals with everything you could ask
“We witnessed a crazy game, a typical northern derby between
Hannover and Werder Bremen.
“It was also a lucky win. The 3-2 showed our will never to give

he is one of our best creative players.
“I don’t think he knew about the rule, but the referee got

Referee Deniz Aytekin admitted even he did not want to show the
Hungarian the red card, but he was only following the rules.
“You do have to feel sorry about it,” he is quoted as saying on
the Hannover website. “I had to warn him for taking his shirt off
and then he climbed onto the perimeter fencing and that left me no
other choice but to send him off.
“You could see from my reaction that I really did not want to do
it, but I just have to do my duty in such a situation.”
