A whole club like on a cloud. With one or the other in the HSV environment, the euphoria seems to be so great that it gets a little confused.

Already on Sunday, a few hours after the 3: 2 in Rostock, with which the club made it clear that it would participate in the relegation, the first congratulations on promotion were posted a little prematurely – and of all things by the new shirt sponsor “HanseMerkur”…

“HanseMerkur congratulates HSV on their promotion to the Bundesliga,” the company said on Instagram, posting a photo of a jubilant “Dino Hermann”. In proper style, of course, in the HSV jersey with the company’s lettering. After this season, the insurance group will replace “Orthomol” and become the club’s main sponsor for three years.

It goes without saying that a rise would be just the right thing to further increase awareness. It can still come. The congratulations were a bit hasty though. After the faux pas was exposed, the post was quickly removed.

HSV took the matter with a smile. After all, the new partner is obviously firmly convinced of the rise, there are worse things, it said with a wink from the Volkspark.

Are they the least popular because they are the best? Liverpool FC are winning everything at the moment, but have now been voted the most hated club in the English league in a poll.

Youssoufa Moukoko is considered one of the greatest talents in German football. Now his time with the BVB pros is coming to an end. The striker is now sharing clear pictures on social media – and already seems to be saying goodbye.

Erling Haaland should have been happy about the reaction of the fans when he left BVB. The striker did not like the request to undergo a doping test after his last game.
