Hertha disaster against Wolfsburg. The Berliners also lose the second game after the World Cup break. After the 1: 3 in Bochum, it rained a 0: 5 in front of a negative backdrop in the Olympic Stadium against the wolves. The capital club has seven points fewer than last season at the end of the preliminary round.
Coach Sandro Schwarz (44) is partly responsible for this. He says soberly: “We got in the face, we missed the aggressiveness. We have to question everything critically, including me, the head coach. But we haven’t descended yet. It’s a difficult situation, but we can still solve it.”
Sports boss Fredi Bobic (51) says to the coach. “I have great confidence in Sandro. It’s not even remotely under discussion.”
Bobic takes the team to task, grumbles: “The first half was the worst we’ve shown this season. That was underground. The players stood next to each other, were not awake. We didn’t rear up, just ran around. The next few days will be tough for the boys. We will be very clear about what is wrong here.”
That is a lot. Regarding the situation of the seventeenth in the table, threatened with relegation, Bobic says: “Of course we could now look at the entire first half of the season and say: actually we are stupid. We played strong games and didn’t score any points. Now we are rightly down there. But we’re going through with it.”
Means: Bobic wants to fight – with coach Schwarz.
Waiting to see what the situation is like on Saturday after the derby against Union…
