2nd League: New HSV sports director Kuntz is “incredibly happy”

Stefan Kuntz is the new hope at HSV. As sports director, he should achieve what his predecessor Jonas Boldt missed: promotion to the Bundesliga. He speaks out for the first time on Instagram.

Stefan Kuntz commented for the first time on Instagram about his move to the position of sports director at the second division soccer team Hamburger SV.

“I am taking up the position of sports director at HSV with great enthusiasm and full of energy,” wrote the 61-year-old a few hours after the club announced the personnel. “I am incredibly happy to be taking on this new challenge and becoming part of such a renowned, traditional club like HSV.”

The former national player and U21 national coach replaces Jonas Boldt. The 42-year-old was informed by supervisory board chairman Michael Papenfuß that the club was parting ways with him early despite his contract until 2025.

Boldt also spoke again on Instagram, reviewed his time in Hamburg and thanked “for wonderful encounters, togetherness and many great, committed people, whether in the office, whether fans and partners or companions”. That is what remains despite the separation. “So I am not only a member for life, but I will always remain connected to HSV and keep my fingers crossed for the future. HSV – no club will ever be like that!”

Boldt came to Hamburg in 2019. During his tenure, the club missed out on promotion to the Bundesliga five times, most recently in the season just ended, finishing fourth. In total, HSV failed six times in its attempt to return to the German top flight.
