No order in Munich: Pal Dardai.

“We didn’t offer anything, not in a duel, not playfully,” said a disappointed Dardai after the final whistle on “Sky” and added: “You only saw the team. That wasn’t a nice feeling.”

The Hungarian revealed that he tried to “build up the team” at halftime, but that was only short-lived: “Then there was an individual mistake to make it 3-0 – and we didn’t have a chance.”

Hertha went down 0: 5 in the end. Dardai couldn’t quite say why it was. “You could feel that it was tough today. The players were insecure,” said the 45-year-old, who missed the leader on the pitch. “You need leading players, especially in important moments. In the first half there was no coaching on the pitch, I didn’t see any aggressive announcements, everyone was busy with themselves. That is not how football works.”

International break comes in handy

It is as it is – and Hertha has undoubtedly made a false start with zero points and a whopping ten goals. That’s one of the reasons why people in Berlin are happy about the upcoming international break. “That is good for us,” said Dardai: “We have to let that sink a bit and prepare for the games in which we can score.”

In mid-September the old lady will continue against two newcomers – and there you are already under pressure, as Niklas Stark emphasized: “We should definitely score points against Bochum and F├╝rth.”
