Holtby after 0-3 defeat: 'It feels like shit'
Lewis Holtby didn't mince his words after Hamburger SV's terrible start to life in the 2. Bundesliga.
After last season's disappointing relegation to the 2. Bundesliga, Hamburger SV began the new season with a stunning 0-3 defeat to Holstein Kiel at home last night. Not exactly the start to the season that HSV - and Lewis Holtby - had hoped for.

"It's hard to put into words. It feels like shit. All of us, including myself, have totally failed today. We have to fight more," Holtby told SPORT BILD after last night's game and added that HSV will strive to improve for the next game against Sandhausen on August 12.
"We will analyse the game, work hard and shut up. And then show our real face in Sandhausen," he said.
The score was 0-0 at the break, but Holstein Kiel took a crushing 3-0 win thanks to second half goals from Jonas Meffert, David Kinsombi and Mathias Honsak.
