Next Match: at home to Mainz, December 21
Hamburg would consider a bid for former forward Ivica Olic if he chooses not to extend his contract with Wolfsburg in the summer. The 34-year-old played for Hamburg between 2007 and 2009 before moving on to Bayern Munich. He has found some of the best form of his career this season for the Wolves and has every intention of carrying on playing for at least another year, preferably in the Bundesliga. "Olic is an interesting player and he has a past with Hamburg, and he is still liked by the fans," said Hamburg's director of sport Oliver Kreuzer. "Our young players could certainly benefit from such a player."
