HSV Hamburg President Rudolph Convinced Club Will Overcome Financial Difficulties
Handball Bundesliga (HBL) HSV Hamburg President Andreas Rudolph "is convinced that the club will overcome its huge financial troubles," according to the SID. Rudolph said, "We still have quite a few opportunites this season, more than five months, to generate income. We have important home games. We are still playing in the Champions League." The 58-year-old added, "When I took over as president in November, I didn't expect such a mountain. But we will overcome it." Rudolph stressed once again that he "was not involved in the club's operations during the previous two-and-a-half years." The defending EHF Champions League champion revealed on Tuesday that "it has a hole" of almost €2M ($2.75M) in its budget for the current season (SID, 2/20).
