Augsburg (AP) – After his double against the unfortunate Mainz, Augsburg André Hahn was looking forward to the bench.
The match winner of the Fuggerstadt team wanted to relax and put his feet on the ground after his knockout with two goals. against the beaten bottom table. Hahn’s goals two and three of the season in the 3-1 (1-0) Saturday against FSV gave FC Augsburg the second best start of the season in the club’s history.
“Now is the time to calm down, keep your feet still and keep accumulating points until you are relegated,” said the attacking player after his seventh double in the Bundesliga and the first after a break of more than four years. The one-time national player then still played for Borussia Mönchengladbach.
After Florian Niederlechner’s injury-related break, coach Heiko Herrlich assigned the 30-year-old to the front alongside Michael Gregoritsch. Actually Hahn plays more on the grand piano. However, the changed role with his two late hits (80th, 90th + 1) suited him well.
“André Hahn has rewarded himself for his tremendous effort,” said manager Stefan Reuter. “He made important, deep runs to open up spaces.” The double package makes it “huge”.
