Johan Djourou’s defending in the 3-0 defeat at Hertha Berlin was partly responsible for one of his Hamburg teammates breaking down in tears after the game, according to German source Blick.

Djourou, who is on loan from Arsenal, was at fault for two goals as Hamburg lost their sixth match in a row to slip to second bottom in the Bundesliga.
After the match, former Bayern Munich striker Jacques Zoua was mobbed by angry fans and reportedly collapsed in tears.
Djourou, who was returning to the team for the first time since tearing a calf muscle in late December, was responsible for two of Hertha’s goals and will likely be dropped for the match against Brunswick on Saturday.
The Swiss has generally been steady since arriving at the Imtech Arena on a season-loan loan deal in the summer.
Zoua refused to blame Djourou for his tears and insisted he understood the fans’ angry reactions.
“The defeat against Berlin was the sixth in a row, it was just too much. I do not blame the fans, therefore, that they were angry,” said the Cameroon international.
“An team like HSV should not allow such a defeat to Hertha at home.”
