Hertha trainer Dardai wants to teach his professionals their own “handwriting” within a very short time. If you don’t follow along, you’ll have problems.

Hertha’s new coach Pal Dardai sent midfielder Ivan Sunjic into the dressing room in clear words during training the day after the bankruptcy against Werder Bremen. “Fuck off here, bye,” Dardai said to Sunijic, as shown in a video broadcast by Sky. According to reports from “Bild” and “Kicker”, a lack of discipline on the part of the 26-year-old should have been the trigger.

Dardai wants to take action at the bottom of the table, he had announced that. “I have to attack now. If someone doesn’t follow suit, I have to make other decisions,” said the 47-year-old, looking at the disappointing 2: 4. Striker Wilfried Kanga, who was not in the squad, felt the effects on Saturday. “His body language wasn’t enough all week,” said Dardai.

The coach is counting on the pros converting their anger at their poor performance into fighting spirit. “Where we are now, I hope that the frustration will come out. This frustration should solve this blockade, because then you really start to fight. Something has to happen there,” said the 47-year-old.

Wrong automatisms

The Hungarian complained that his team lacked the basics, especially in the “chaos moments” with second balls or turnovers. “There are endless false automatisms in there. It’s unbelievable,” he said on Sunday. At such moments, the team in the center “didn’t defend the goal. I have no idea what we were defending. That’s not okay.” The players would have to hold each other accountable.

Dardai has been Hertha’s head coach for the third time since April 16 and is supposed to save her from relegation again. “It’s difficult to get these automatisms in, but we’ll give everything for it,” he said. “I’m still a firm believer if there’s a change in focus and mentality.” The team must implement the requirements quickly. “I always say a clever team needs six weeks, a stupid team three months. After three weeks I want to see my handwriting in the next home game.”

First of all, the task at FC Bayern Munich next Sunday (3.30 p.m. / DAZN). “At Bayern Munich, everyone knows that it can be a huge hit, it can be close. I don’t expect a surprise,” said Dardai.
