Managing director Fredi Bobic has set the fans of Bundesliga soccer club Hertha BSC to more realism.
He will “not let balloons go up and tell anything that does not correspond to reality,” said Bobic (50) at the digital general meeting on Sunday: “The reality is: work hard to get better and, above all, do the simple things right .”
After seven months in office, he sees “a lot of progress”, even if this is often not recognizable to outsiders. “But I see them,” emphasized Michael Preetz’s successor, “the cooperation is getting better and clearer, the projects are being pushed.”
The biggest task is to further improve the structure within the team. Despite the 374 million euros from investor Lars Windhorst, this is not so easy due to the effects of the corona pandemic. Nevertheless, one wants to “move away from passivity towards activity”.
This is one of the reasons why the change of coach from Pál Dárdai to Tayfun Korkut was completed. Korkut is “not my buddy”, as he has read, but a coach “who stands for something, but who can also adapt”. Should a positive development be seen under Korkut, “nothing stands in the way of it continuing,” stressed Bobic.
