With the end of Fredi Bobic, the “Big City Club” is finally history. Hertha BSC’s new approach sounds good, but it’s grotesque. Because the way the club is supposed to be, it was before.

Ihen a new year begins, there is maximum excitement at Hertha BSC. Those who are less inclined to the Berlin Bundesliga club also say chaos. A little flashback: In February 2020, after Jürgen Klinsmann’s loud departure, the club was the focus of reporting for days, a year later it hit Klinsmann’s opponent Michael Preetz, who was dismissed after more than ten years as manager. Last spring: Felix Magath’s campaign to bring him back from coaching retirement. And now: sports director Fredi Bobic, who came from Frankfurt as a great hope. All coincidence? Not at all.

At the beginning of each year, Hertha was always forced to correct the mistakes of the previous months. There were many of them. So many that the club got into existential difficulties. The coffers are empty, sporty relegation threatens. As a result, said coffers would be even more difficult to fill. So it is understandable that Hertha’s new president Kay Bernstein decreed the next change of course, no matter how radical it may appear.
