Pal Dardai has a dream. The coach of Hertha BSC dreaming of Konstanz – Konstanz, in the occupation of his team. Oh, if the Berlin football team could keep his current squad, only a couple of years... Pal Dardai is the Belief that Hertha would have in the short or not so long-a genuine top team at the Start. "This team has huge potential," says the Hungarian. "Anything could grow here."
The defeat was avoidable
Young, dynamic, capable of development. This is Hertha in the spring of 2019. And still for one or the other error. The 1:2-defeat in Freiburg have many perceived as preventable and therefore. Because of: Typically, Hertha! "If you so much, this has to do something with quality," says Dardai. "This is painful." Always if the team can make in the table a rate, you don't get the nerves in the handle. But this is – literally – only half of the truth.
"In the second half we showed a good game," says Dardai. Which means: In the first, the Berliners have not shown a good game. You were 0:1 behind, found right in the two fights. "This is weird," says Dardai. "Now I stand here again and to hold the same speech as last week."
last week against Mainz, Hertha had delivered a moderate first half. After the break, however, and a significant speech by Pal Dardai in the cabin is a completely different team on the pitch that could decide the game at the end with 2:1. In Freiburg a lot of what didn't work in the first work in the second half. Dardai had switched the System from 3-5-2 to a 4-4-2. His players were now higher, attacked earlier and more resolutely, after you had been missing before the interval is always a half meters to the access to the opponent. Good, purposeful possession of the ball the coach of his team attested to. "This has worked well," he says to his system changeover.
The game in Freiburg showed once more that the team is receptive to impulses from the outside. It has also shown that it takes these impulses from the outside still. Also, this is not unusual for a young Team that is not fixed in another like a force abgezockter veterans, brings to a close one, sometimes loose over time. "This is the experience we have," says Dardai. "If you always do the same mistake and it always runs according to the same method, will have to you might notice: We are not yet so far."
Learn Hertha slow?
But the Hertha would not have to be long? The allegation is latent in the area that the team learns fast enough, that it lacks consistency and there is no progress without Konstanz now, time is crucial. "We learn slowly," says Dardai, but this does not mean, "that we are playing Champions League or Euro League". Four years, the Hungarian is now a Trainer at Herthas professionals. He has taken over the team, as she was on the penultimate place of the table, has saved them from relegation and has since come never anywhere near the relegation battle.the Hero of The Bundesliga-round view more images of 1 of 23Text: Christopher roof, photo: dpaheute 12:0425.

It is true that Hertha has won this season only twice in two games in a row – what could be taken as an expression of the lack of consistency. The other part of the truth is that Hertha has lost in this season only two games in a row (and never more) – on the tenth and eleventh round against Leipzig and Düsseldorf. This is also a Form of consistency and stability, the other higher ranked non-managed Teams: Schalke 04, is one of the five low-in the season started and are currently in seven Games winless. Borussia Mönchengladbach had brought to success in Mainz on Saturday evening from the four Games previously only to a point.
"We were stable," says Dardai. "The opponent has not played for us apart." For more than 20 years, the Hungarian Hertha works. Of course he knows Berlin, and the large, sometimes oversized expectations. And, of course, he knows that it is difficult, against such moods and vibrations with arguments to fight. "We are much better than they used to," he says. "In the past we would have played 90 minutes of suck." Now, it is enough for 45 good minutes. Satisfied nobody is going to be at Hertha. Pal Dardai probably least of all: "We have to be greedy and some not to do, so we always pull the short straw."More about
