The winger has expressed pleasure at his team’s nervy 2-1 win over the German capital club to put the Dinosaurs’ campaign back on track. last Saturday, January 28, at the Olympiastadion. He stated that the Red Shorts went in with the purpose of only winning the game despite being
battered in their previous outing against Borussia Dortmund and achieved the feat with an impressive away victory.
The German international claimed that his side was well organised going into the game, and were only able to clinch the win because they had put Dortmund defeat at the back of their minds.
The winger added that his team could brush aside any opposition if they maintain the same composure and focus in the upcoming games. Manager Thorsten Fink has had an instant impact on the team since his arrival in October after
the side’s dismal start under Oenning.
The 26-year-old earned his side a lead in the 24th minute before made it 2-0 right at the stroke of half time. Pierre-Michel Lasogga pulled one goal back for the home side in the dying stages, but it proved
no more than a consolation as slipped to their seventh defeat of the season.
While talking to the official Bundesliga website, Jansen further added:
“We put the result behind us and concentrated fully on the game against Berlin. If we can play with as much focus throughout the full 90 minutes as we did for 80 minutes today, then there's no reason for us to hide against Bayern.”
On the other hand, the winger reckons that Hamburg played exceptionally well, and mainly relied on counters. He admitted that his team lost focus in the second half, but was pleased with the three points that has kept the Red Shorts
in contention to finish in the top half of the table.
“We played really well in the first half of the game and were in complete control of proceedings. It was clear that Berlin had to do more. After all they were still the home team. We utilised our chances on the counter attack and
were able to build up a lot of pressure, but unfortunately we weren't clinical enough to put the finishing touches on the moves,” Jansen concluded.
Hamburg are currently 11th on the league standings with 22 points from 19 games, and their next test be on Saturday, February 04, against the present leaders, Bayern Munich. A win for the hosts would most likely put
them in the top-half of the Bundesliga standings table which will be a huge achievement considering their poor start to the season.
