In the 82. Minute of the Cup game against Bayern Munich Pal Dardai Luke Klünters head is pulled very close to the own and watched the 22-Year-old deep in the eyes. Then Klünter los sprinted from one sideline to the other, where he appeared on the right wing. This Sprint had something liberating. Klünter had the leash on this one. And as one who for months on his Chance, had to wait. 38 minutes Klünter on Wednesday afternoon for Hertha in the field. The goods arrived 37 minutes, more than Klünter so far in the League.
as soon as Klünter the 68 meters to the right outside of the track back put on, there was no progress in it for him at Hertha BSC. In the summer, he moved from the Relegated Cologne to Berlin. Klünter added with his age seamlessly into the ranks of the young, talented professionals, on the Hertha under Pal Dardai reinforced. As right-back Mitchell Weiser almost moved to Bayer Leverkusen, seemed Klünter to be the predestined successor for this Position.
The reason for this is that he has not been to date, was originally planned to be significantly more aggressive. "He's out of luck that I have retrained Valentino Lazaro to right-back," said Pal Dardai in November. Until February has changed to the constellation of nothing. Lazaro missed so far, not a single Bundesliga Minute, to the Austrians, there was no way of getting Past. To make matters worse for Klünter that he was dismissed in November, a muscle bundle crack injury in the thigh and only in January the return to Training.
"He can sprint over 40 metres and then hold"
The fifth yellow card, who attracted himself to Lazaro in the home defeat against VfL Wolfsburg, sets it now but out of action for the away game this Saturday at Borussia Mönchengladbach (15.30 clock, live on Sky). With Peter Pekarik another right-back is injured. That is why Luke is allowed to Klünter emergence from the start for Hertha, Pal Dardai established already. It would be only his second League after Klünter came on as a substitute in September in Wolfsburg in stoppage time.
"In Training, he has taken a step forward. Also during the test match against Eintracht Braunschweig, he has shown a good performance,“ says Pal Dardai. You cannot expect Klünter but immediately an error-free game. "He is a young player who can develop and potential."
Also in the technical area Klünter has still room for improvement. In 2014, he moved from Bonner SC in the A-youth of the Cologne. Training in a Junior performance centre, a Bundesliga club he enjoyed so. "That's why I missed a lot and I still do, especially in the technical area," he said after his move to Berlin. In Cologne he had inserted after the actual Training Overtime, the game is to eliminate skill deficits.
The great strength Klünters is the pace. The 100 meters he runs in 10.6 seconds, Pal Dardai referred to him as the fastest player on the team. "He can sprint over 40 metres and then keep." How shortly after his substitution against the Munich. There's a steep pass from Davie Selke chased Klünter, a urge thanks to his pace in the penalty area and gave the third Berlin goal of the game, Sven Ulreich, but defused.
Klünter was of his nature, actually, "an attacker," says Dardai. For the 1. FC Köln, he ran twice as a centre-forward and hit it once. Against Gladbach, the focus of the Berlin, with 120 hard Cup minutes in the bones of the night, but especially on defense work. Because of the table second, the not played under the week in the Cup, could be Hertha, with its fast players such as Thorgan Hazard, especially in the shift game dangerous. At home, Borussia is also extremely strong. They won each of their nine home games.
Should be run out of Berlin at the Borussia empty, would back the European Cup places in more and more remote. "I have never spoken about the Europa League," says Pal Dardai. Nonetheless, he and his team would not compete as "every game" for a point, but to Win. In contrast to the previous 20 League will be permitted to help Play now Luke Klünter.
