The Hertha management team around investor Lars Windhorst and sports director Fredi Bobic spoke for the first time about the election of the new Berlin President Kay Bernstein.
Windhorst wants to go into the coming talks with the newly elected President “openly and without any reservations”. “It can only get better than it used to be,” said the Berlin investor in an interview with the table football.
Bobic also assured Bernstein of his full support after his election. “It’s about everyone pulling together. For me, the area of sport comes first,” said Bobic.
Immediately after his freestyle, Bernstein campaigned for closer cooperation between the Executive Committee. Everyone present is a Hertha brand ambassador and must help “so that we can win back our blue and white soul,” the former Ultra swore to the Berlin members. “We need to detoxify the club from the inside. We need an honest, real restart!”
Bernstein prevailed last Sunday at the Hertha general meeting with 1,670 to 1,280 votes against CDU politician Frank Steffel. The post became vacant after ex-President Werner Gegenbauer announced his resignation at the end of May after a lost power struggle with Windhorst.
Even before the election, the sports picture reports that both Bobic and Windhorst would support Steffel’s candidacy.
