Fredi Bobic, the sports director at Hertha BSC, has parted ways. The executive committee and supervisory board agreed to relieve the 51-year-old of his duties “with immediate effect” on Saturday following the disappointing 0: 2 (0: 1) loss in the capital derby to 1. FC Union Berlin, the club said. Before the game, Bobic granted coach Sandro Schwarz a job guarantee. Immediately following the game, Bobic conducted interviews.

Hertha’s poor start to the year, which included losses to VfL Bochum (1: 3) and VfL Wolfsburg (0: 5), has left them in 17th place in the standings and in danger of dropping down. A news conference has been scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m. by the club.

In April 2021, Bobic was appointed managing director of the capital club for the 2021/22 season, taking up for longtime manager Michael Preetz. At Eintracht Frankfurt, the former national striker Bobic enjoyed prior success. Hertha was in serious danger of being relegated in the previous campaign as well, and Felix Magath, who had been brought in as a savior, was the only reason they were able to avoid it by losing to Hamburger SV.

On Saturday night, the ramifications of the decision against Bobic for Black were still unclear. After the derby loss, captain Marco Richter commented, “We also have a lot of faith in the coach.” “He’s a perfect fit for us, that much is clear. He has the same weaknesses that we do.” Hopefully, the “shared course” will continue.
