Messi? He’s good. But is he Johan Djourou getting an assist off his arse good?
Embracing his role as stand in captain with Rafael Van der Vaart out of the match, Djourou certainly stepped up. Hamburg were in real trouble too, needing to win to avoid relegation. Their opponent, Schalke 04, equally embattled but for different reasons.
Schalke have been poor this season, missing out on the Champions League, Roberto Di Matteo’s future would not be helped by defeat to a team that looked to be heading down.
But when you need a hero, Johan Djourou will step up. Despite the side conceding a whopping fifty goals in the thirty-three Bundesliga appearences prior to last weekend’s match, they managed to keep a clean sheet.
Not satisfied with keeping Schalke at bay, captain Johan popped up with this arse-some assist.
We can’t say we’re surprised. Djourou’s been breaking out moves like long before he headed to Hamburg.
So Hamburg bagged a two nil victory and were saved while Di Matteo was sacked, curse you Johan!!
