Jol: Hamburg deserved it

17 Apr 2009 - 07:44:14

Coach Martin Jol believes Hamburg deserved their place in the semi-finals of the UEFA Cup despite losing 2-1 at Manchester City on Thursday night.

The German side slipped to a second-leg defeat at Eastlands but booked their place in the last four by virtue a 4-3 aggregate scoreline.

Hamburg will now face Bundesliga rivals Werder Bremen for a place in the final.

"We started off very well and the goal helped a lot," said Jol.

"Then we had a penalty given against us, which was a bit harsh.

"We knew if they got another goal it would be exciting again and that is what happened.

"But they did not score a third and that was great. I think over two legs we were the better side."
