Czech Republic international David Jarolim has admitted his frustration at losing his place in Hamburg's first team.
The midfielder has lost his spot since the recent derby defeat to St Pauli, with Brazil veteran Ze Roberto stepping into manager Armin Veh's plans.
Former Hamburg captain Jarolim is not happy with the situation and has sounded his disappointment.
He told BILD: "During my stay at this club, this is nothing I have ever experienced before.
"It would be nothing other than a lie in denying that this is a big factor of frustration for me.
"I am on the top of my fitness, I am doing fine in training, I am fully motivated and I am ready to play from the start for my club."
Meanwhile, Colin Benjamin fears his time at Hamburg is over because he has not been told that he will be awarded a new contract in the summer.
Benjamin's agent, Hans-Josef Franken, told Hamburg Morgenpost: "This is stunning and is not like it should be. It's a pity I am have not been given any signal.
"We cannot wait any longer. We will start to look around now."
