Hamburg parts ways with sports director Arnesen

Hamburger SV has parted ways with sports director Frank Arnesen by "mutual agreement" with immediate effect.
The Bundesliga club says on its website that both parties agreed to end their partnership on Wednesday after a majority of the club's board failed to back the Dane for a contract extension the night before.
Hamburg says the decision is based on financial considerations and differing views for the club over the long term, adding that the "sporting performance of our team this season is a success of his work."
Hamburg finished seventh in the Bundesliga, just missing out on European qualification.
The 56-year-old Arnesen joined Hamburg in 2011 after switching from Chelsea.
