Pal Dardai (45) in the constraint!
The Hertha coach constantly had to improvise on the first seven match days. The Berliners started each game with a new starting XI.
Bad conditions if you are looking for stability.
Why doesn’t Dardai find a first eleven?
► The team is plagued by bad luck with injuries. Only goalkeeper Alexander Schwolow (29) and vice-captain Niklas Stark (26) have been able to play every minute so far.
► And Dardai relied on professionals at the beginning of the season who left the club at the end of the transfer window. Matheus Cunha (21) played again for Hertha before moving to Atletico Madrid, Dodi Lukebakio (23 / Wolfsburg) four times. Javairo Dilrosun (23/3 missions) only moved to Bordeaux a few hours before the transfer deadline had expired.
Consequences of the transfers and injuries: Dardai has already played 27 players – the highest in the league. Only the substitute keepers Rune Jarstein (37), Oliver Christensen (22) and Nils Körber (24) have not yet played.
This shows that Dardai has to push the squad to the limit in order to get the games through.
The coach therefore wishes: “It would be nice if everyone stayed healthy and we could field the same team in two or three games in a row. Then an axis would form. “
Then Hertha can hope for more stability – and for victories.
