Sports director Fredi Bobic sees Hertha BSC in a “kind of consolidation” after the turbulence surrounding investor Lars Windhorst and ex-president Werner Gegenbauer and predicts difficult financial times for the Bundesliga club. Since the hoped-for success did not occur, one must “take steps backwards now,” said the 51-year-old in an interview with the Munich Mercury and the tz.
In terms of sport, the table is 14th. before the duel with Bayern Munich on Saturday (3.30 p.m. in LIVETICKER) on the right track: “We are in a season that may be average on paper, but which is appealing from the way we play.”
At the same time, Bobic called for patience – “otherwise you’ll find yourself in the 3rd division”.
The management already lives it this way: “We try to do our job with a work ethic and humility.” The aim is to “rejuvenate the ‘old lady’ and bring it into the modern age”.
A step in this direction would certainly also be a win against the record champions on Saturday: “But many components have to fit together, as always against Bayern.”
