2. Fußball-Bundesliga: Trainer Tim Walter verlängert Vertrag beim HSV
Hamburger SV relies on continuity as a coach. The second in the table has extended the contract with Tim Walter until 2024. The 47-year-old is already the second division record coach of the traditional club.
After the board members Eric Huwer and Jonas Boldt had recently received new working papers from the promotion candidate, it was only a matter of time before HSV would also give Walter a new contract. Boldt, who is responsible for sports at the executive level at the Hanseatic League, had always campaigned for the trainer to remain on Sylvesterallee.
Shortly before leaving for the training camp in Sotogrande (Spain) on Wednesday, he announced to HSV that he would extend his contract with the coach.
“The club has a brutal force”
“I’m happy that the club wants to continue on the path we’ve taken with me. On the one hand, it’s a big task, but on the other hand, it’s a great honor to work for the club because it has a brutal impact and I enjoy it every day to work here,” said Walter.
In addition to the head coach, his assistant trainers Filip Tapalovic, Julian Hübner and Merlin Polzin as well as goalkeeper trainer Sven Höh also extended their contracts.
Walter with HSV on course for promotion
Walter took over the post at the former Bundesliga “Dino” in the summer of 2021. In his first season as a HSV coach, he led the six-time German champions to third place and thus achieved the best result since relegation in 2018. However, the Hamburg team then failed in the relegation to Hertha BSC (1: 0, 0: 2).
In the current season, before the start of the second half of the season, the Hanseatic League is in second place on the last weekend in January.
So far 60 competitive games as HSV coach
Before his HSV commitment, Walter had worked for VfB Stuttgart, Holstein Kiel and FC Bayern Munich as a coach for the U23s and in the youth sector. As the first coach in Hamburg’s second division history, he survived his first season at the Volkspark.
The second half of the season against Eintracht Braunschweig (January 29, 1:30 p.m., in the live center on NDR.de) will be the 47-year-old’s 61st competitive game as HSV coach.
Boldt: “Tim exemplifies courage and passion”
“Tim identified completely with HSV from day one, exemplifies courage and passion. Together with our coaching team, he radiates immense energy in our daily work with the team. Players have clearly developed under Tim,” praised Bold the emotional trainer.
