Frank Arnesen: Failed to get Hamburg back into Europe

The Dane has spent two years with Hamburg, including a spell as interim manager, but has failed to secure European football for a second successive season.

Arnesen was under contract at the imtech Arena until June 2014 but agreed to terminate that deal after a majority of the club's board failed to support an extension to his contract at a meeting on Tuesday evening.

A statement from the Hamburg board cited a "difference in opinions concerning the long-term direction of the club" for the decision to part with the 56-year-old.

The statement continued: "This season's performance is an indicator of his successful time here. We would like to wish him all the best for the future both personally and professionally."

Arnesen joined the German side in 2011 from Chelsea.

think all those names linked to United exits make sense. Kagawa has never really looked like hitting the form he had at Dortmund and Fellaini is radioactive after last season (even though I think he's been unfairly singled out for criticism). Nani and Anderson have had more than their fair share of chances so they are done, and Hernandez deserves better than warming a bench.

e'll be off to Spurs (or better) in January and I don't blame him. Looking forward to re-signing Grant Holt as his replacement though.
