Frank Arnesen in temporary double-function

Frank Arnesen will add to his task as HSV sport director with immediate effect, the club announced on Monday October 10th 2011. Danish-born Arnesen will take over first team matters until an adequate replacement is found to replace luckless Michael Oenning who left the club on September 19th 2011.

Frank Arensen is prepared to take the risk to his fine worldwide reputation to help HSV.

Frank Arensen always has the club at heart. He pointed out: "I want a coach who is the best solution for HSV, and not one who we can employ just for the sake of it." Arnesen will also train the first team squad. On Monday afternoon, after consulting his coaching staff, Arnesen held his first training session. It was the first since he trained Chelsea's reserve team. Arnesen qualified for his coaching badges in 2002 in Holland, after three and a half years of attending the necessary courses and passing exams." There was no exception made for me because of my profitability. I had to work very hard to earn them", says the former Danish international. From 1991-94 he was Co.trainer at Dutch giants PSV Eindhoven, before collecting further experience at Wilhelm II Tillburg - another Netherlands outfit.  

Arnesen would not comment on the long media-drawn list of coaches being linked with the Hamburg hot seat. He told us: "I don't want to discuss possible candidates. I have this double-function for as long as necessary." The Dane is ready to deal with the extra pressure his new task demands. He went on: "Of course there is a certain amount of risk for me. I am responsible and will be judged accordingly. But if it works to the advantage of HSV I am ready to take that risk."

Arnesen means to carry on more or less where interim coach Cardoso left off. The Dane pointed out: "I won't make many changes, after all we have just played our best two games of the season, and they showed us that we are on the right path." Arnesen plans to involve his assistant Lee Congerton more, especially in the analysis department. In Freiburg on Sunday 16.10.2011, 15:30 CET), Arnesen will be in charge of the round 9 Bundesliga encounter against fellow-strugglers SC Freiburg, who are only three places and the same amount of points ahead of HSV's visit.

That game is a so-called "six-pointer" because of the close proximity of the clubs in the Bundesliga table and because of the importance points have to both sides.
