When Hamburg entertain Bayern on Friday evening, all eyes would normally have been on Ivica Olic. The HSV striker is bound for FCB this summer, but is suspended for the next two Bundesliga matches after a sending-off in a winter friendly.
“I’m obviously gutted about the ban, but there’s nothing I can do about it now," Olic exclusively told fcbayern.de. The Croatia star would welcome another chance to face Bayern, should the sides cross paths in the DFB Cup, “although I’d prefer it to be the final in Berlin."
Interview: Ivica Olic
fcbayern.de: Congratulations Ivica. You’re not even a Bayern player yet, but your three midweek [DFB Cup] goals against TSV 1860 Munich have made you a hero among FCB fans.
Ivica Olic: “Thanks. I’d picked up on the fact there’s a certain rivalry between two clubs in Munich. And it’s not often you manage to please HSV and Bayern fans at the same time (laughs).“
fcbayern.de: You’re suspended for the meeting with your future club. How disappointed are you?
Olic: “I’m obviously gutted about the ban, but there’s nothing I can do about it now. I’ve been stupid, and it shouldn’t be happening to me.“
fcbayern.de: Where will you be for Friday’s match?
Olic: “There’s a spot between the dug-out and the stands. I’ll sit there with my injured team-mates and cross my fingers. I can’t say I’m looking forward to it though. I’d much rather be out on the field, just watching helplessly hurts a lot.“
