Mladen Petrić's guide to Hamburg

Denied the opportunity of playing the UEFA Europa League final on home turf, Hamburger SV striker Mladen Petrić says the fans of their vanquishers, Fulham FC, and Club Atlético de Madrid have a lot to look forward to this week.

The Croatian international has just completed his second season at HSV and admits it took no time to settle in what is a "wonderful city". He tells UEFA.com what makes the Hamburg Arena and the fans that so often fill it special, what gives the city centre "a very special flair" and where to go when you are feeling peckish. Of course, but for Fulham's semi-final heroics Petrić – scorer of ten UEFA Europa League goals this season including qualifying – might have been aiming to dine out there himself after the final.
