2nd league: power struggle and winless series: perfect false start for Hannover

In addition to the conflict at the top of Hannover 96, the team also got off to a bad start in the 2nd Bundesliga.

After the 2:4 (2:1) at SC Paderborn, Stefan Leitl's team is still waiting for their first win of the season after three games. The Lower Saxony had imagined it completely differently after signing this coveted coach and eleven new players.

However, Hanover is in prominent company. The two Bundesliga relegated Arminia Bielefeld and SpVgg Greuther Fürth are still waiting for the first three points. While the Fürthers got a point in the 1-1 draw against Karlsruher SC, the East Westphalians remain in the bottom of the table with three defeats after the 1-2 draw at Hansa Rostock.

96 coach Leitl annoyed

Hannover coach Leitl was "unsatisfied. And that annoys me too," said the 44-year-old. "We're lucky not to get the fifth goal." The performances in the previous games have never been completely inadequate: against 1. FC Kaiserslautern (1: 2) and St. Pauli (2: 2) the team had to accept late goals in added time.

The leadership dispute in the club must feel very threatening for many supporters of Lower Saxony. The atmosphere is very tense after the dismissal of Martin Kind as professional football managing director by the parent club Hannover 96 e.V.

Child takes legal action against decision

The hearing aid entrepreneur is defending himself against the surprising decision of the e.V. Although the 78-year-old is allowed to continue working until the hearing on August 16, the fronts between the parent association and the capital side are harder than ever. Both sides have been fighting for power in the club for more than three years.

From the outside, the question arises as to why the child opponents made such a far-reaching decision in the midst of a sporting spirit of optimism. Among other things, the parent association accused the capital side of repeatedly violating the so-called Hanover 96 Treaty and the funding agreements concluded at the same time. The child side denies the allegations.

Hannover looking for a striker

The recall also disrupts the important phase before the end of the transfer window. Hannover 96 is still looking for a striker after the departure of Lukas Hinterseer to Rostock. The club's recent development doesn't make that any easier.

A hungry offensive could be seen for a long time when they met the SCP. Leitl had his problems more with the defensive performance: "We didn't defend well on the defensive. Overall it wasn't good because of that. We put a lot of effort into the offensive, it wasn't enough at the back."

The team was in the lead twice. The guests had taken the lead through Harvard Nielsen (12th minute) and Cedric Teuchert (36th), but had to accept the equalizer twice through an own goal from Luka Krajnc (28th) and a goal from Marvin Pieringer (52nd). Finally, SC captain Ron Schallenberg (60th) and Felix Platte (89th) turned the game in favor of the hosts.
