Van der Vaart feeling confident at Hamburg

Rafael van der Vaart is confident Hamburg can achieve success this season after overcoming their early-season problems.

• Greuther Furth 0-1 Hamburg

Hamburg started the season with three straight defeats, leaving them rooted to the bottom of the Bundesliga table.

However, they have managed to turn things around, picking up ten points in their last four games - including Saturday's 1-0 win over Greuther Furth - to put themselves in contention for a place in Europe next season.

Van der Vaart, who returned to the club for his second spell from Tottenham in the summer, believes the club can even aim for the title in the coming seasons, using Borussia Dortmund as inspiration.

"That is why I came back here,'' he told Kicker magazine. "I have the feeling that something big can happen here. The club have suffered recently with 15th place last season and then the difficult start to this year, but often you have to take a step backward before moving forward again.

"We are heading in the right direction and should take Dortmund as a role model.''

Hamburg will hope to continue their run when they next take on struggling Stuttgart at home after the international break.
