Dismissal of Fredi Bobic: Hertha BSC has parted ways with the sporting director

Bobic was appointed general manager of the capital club in April 2021 for the 2021/22 season, succeeding veteran manager Michael Pritz. Former national striker Bobic had previously worked successfully at Eintracht Frankfurt. Also last season, Hertha was in danger of relegation for a long time and could only stay in the Bundesliga with Felix Magath, who participated as a rescuer, by relegating in front of Hamburger SV.

The results of Bobic’s departure from Hertha Berlin to Schwartz remained open on Saturday night. “We have great confidence in the coach,” captain Marco Richter said after losing the derby. “It’s no secret that it’s a great fit for us. It misses points just as much as we miss it.” We hope the Common Way continues. However, that doesn’t seem like a job guarantee in the precarious situation in which Hertha BSC finds itself.
