Again unrest at Hertha BSC. Substitute goalkeeper Rune Jarstein has been suspended after he allegedly criticized goalkeeping coach Andreas Menger’s methods in training.
Something happened that is not on the agenda. That was a bit more intense. We had a conversation on Friday. After the conversation, we took Rune out of the squad for the reasons that the conversation was like and how it went,” said managing director Fredi Bobic, explaining the club’s decision.
the picture had previously reported that Jarstein had argued with goalkeeping coach Andreas Menger about the content of the training session on Friday and then asked to speak to the Hertha bosses. Jarstein was consequently no longer in the squad for the game against Eintracht Frankfurt.
Jarstein has now been released, and his contract until 2023 is to be terminated in the near future. “Everyone who is responsible has to make decisions – even if they are painful. But you have to make them. A football team doesn’t work without discipline, otherwise we’ll have wild pigs here!” continued Bobic.
“It doesn’t work that way. I already know where the boundaries are and where to draw them. I also know how to forgive – but I also know what has been done in the past and who has been helped. We have We’ve done a lot for Rune in the last year. It’s a shame because it affects a person who’s been here a long time and something like this doesn’t go unnoticed.”
Jarstein moved to the Spree in December 2013 and was number one in the Berliner Tor for many years. Overall, the Norwegian completed 179 competitive games for the old lady. After a corona disease with long-term consequences in the previous year and a knee injury, Jarstein was last number two behind first-choice goalkeeper Oliver Christensen.
