Despite winning series in Frankfurt (2:1) and against Gladbach (1:0) as well as the round of 16 in Münster (3:1) – Hertha is not satisfied.
Coach Pal Dardai (45) on the cup match: -After taking the lead; we have not shown our technical superiority. We lost a lot of the ball.”
In addition; the distances between the parts of the team were not good; the coach often had to intervene on the sidelines.
As SPORT BILD reports in the current issue; the front row (attack) and last row (defense) of the Dardai team should never be more than 30 meters apart on the field – a dimension that Dardai developed as the Hungarian national team coach. .
It was precisely this compactness that was missing in Münster and gave the fourth division team many opportunities. Dardai: “Eventually Alex Schwolow had to sweat again.”
The Hertha keeper was annoyed: -I don’t know if we slept in too early. That was a mistake. After the 3-1 victory we left the opponent standing. I don’t understand that; we have to find out very quickly.”
Will the victory ritual help again in Hoffenheim on Friday?
According to Sport BILD; assistant coach Andreas “Zecke” Neuendorf (46) takes the last address before matches. Neuendorf shouts: “Who will win the first game?” The players shout; “We!” Then the assistant coach yells; “Who will win the game?” The echo of the team: “We!”
