Bereavement for manager Dieter Hecking

The 55-year-old’s father died on Sunday after his health significantly worsened.

With shock and sadness, we inform you that on Sunday (22nd September), the father of the club’s manager Dieter Hecking died after a short battle with a serious illness.

This was the reason why Dieter Hecking didn’t lead training on Saturday and cancelled all interviews after yesterday’s game.

The Hecking family would like to ask that you respect their grieving. Many thanks for your sympathy,

Hamburger SV
