World Cup 2022 News: Fredi Bobic does not see himself as a DFB candidate

December 7th
Fredi Bobic from the Bundesliga club Hertha BSC does not currently see himself as a candidate to succeed Oliver Bierhoff as DFB managing director. “I have a job, I feel very comfortable at Hertha,” said the 51-year-old on Wednesday at a media round in Berlin. Bobic had been traded as one of several potential candidates after Bierhoff left the German Football Association as a result of the national team’s early World Cup failure in Qatar. “I wasn’t keen on my name being mentioned,” said Bobic. “It would have, would have, would have had a lot,” he added to the ongoing personnel speculation. At Hertha he is very satisfied because “things are turning”.
Bobic switched to Hertha in 2021 after working successfully at Eintracht Frankfurt as Managing Director Sport. He has not yet been able to bring about a sporting upswing in the Berliners. He has spent the past three days negotiating with a possible new investor, 777 Partners, who could take over Lars Windhorst’s shares in Hertha. Therefore, he “had no head for topics that affect the DFB,” said Bobic.
