Hamburg in need of 'radical change'

Hamburg have been attacked by the German media following the sacking of coach Thorsten Fink on Monday.

Hesse: Jump ship

Fink was sacked following a return of just four points from the opening five Bundesliga games of the season. The coach’s departure came as no surprise to the German public but Hamburg’s image has been called into question.

Berliner Zeitung ran the headline "The thing with the culture", commenting that the club needed not only a new coach but also "a radical change to finally exploit the club’s full potential."

The club is currently shaped by “three shady characters”, the paper claimed, naming the "overpaid" and "cringeworthy" Rafael van der Vaart whose drive for tabloid attention would "have got him sacked at any other Bundesliga club by now".

Sporting director Oliver Kreuzer was also highlighted as "reasonably smart" but definitely "not clever enough" while chairman Carl-Edgar Jarchow, was said to be as "popular as his political party in Bayern" -- the Liberal Democrats -- who, at the weekend, crashed out of parliament, receiving 3% of the vote (down from 8%).

Bild reports that Van der Vaart and Kreuzer were involved in a dressing room row on Tuesday following the Netherlands international’s criticism of Fink’s departure although it adds that "everything is fine" now.

Meanwhile, plans are already afoot to find a new coach with most of the unemployed coaches in Germany listed as possible candidates.

The names of Stefan Effenberg, Lothar Matthaus (who was pictured with an airhorn next to a road sign for Hamburg), Markus Babbel and former Werder Bremen boss Thomas Schaaf are all mentioned as well as those of former Netherlands boss Bert van Marwijk and former Croatia coach Slaven Bilic. Felix Magath, however, has already turned down the job.

Hamburg financier Klaus-Michael Kuhne, who bankrolled the Van der Vaart transfer in 2012 and whose words have weight at the club has expressed his relief over the "long overdue" sacking of Fink and has called for the head of the Kreuzer, who is "stretched too thin."
