Hamburg SV midfielder Hakan Çalhano?lu is ready to leave the fallen giants.
"They were shocked [Carl Jarchow and Oliver Kreuzer] when I told them that I wanted to go. They had not expected, because for them I was always the small, quiet Hakan," he told the Hamburger Morgenpost.
"Mr. Jarchow had a bet with newspaper reporters that I would stay with HSV if we got relegated.
"I thought that was disrespectful. I gave everything for HSV and he made bets about my future.
"I came here great hope, but I lost it. The coaching change, the whole discussion. For me as a young player that was hard to deal with."
