It is not so, that in the case of Maximilian Mittelstädt at the Moment, everything works. Recently, for example, he played the Ball on the left side, perfect in the free space and the outside defenders right in the barrel. The full-back fit and sharp and flat in the middle and met with city Averages so bulky on the leg that lost his footing and was dashed to the ground. The outside defender Thomas power was in the normal life of a substitute goalkeeper from Hertha BSC, and played at the beginning of this week when Training for the Berlin soccer Bundesliga.
coach Pal Dardai was the supposed A-Eleven against the reservists play. The A Eleven winning 3:0. Maximilian Mittelstädt, 21, scored the first two goals, the third he prepared so skilfully, as if he had not only used up his 15. Age as the ones played, but up to the present day.
Pal Dardai: "We are very pleased with him"
at The Moment, it runs quite well for Herthas U-21 national team player. That means urban in-Training in the A-Eleven and one of Marvin Plattenhardt, the world Cup participants of the past summer, the reservists, the is no Sensation more. It will probably be this Saturday again, so if Hertha BSC in the Olympic stadium (18.30, live on Sky) take on Werder Bremen.
"The season definitely feels good," says Maximilian Mittelstädt. "I've made a Plethora of Games that come in always better, and I feel with each use of safe." If there is an incubation period in which you go from being a young player to a true professional, then this incubation time in the case of small and Medium-sized sometime last summer. This season he has scored his first goals for Hertha – and now he comes on more Bundesliga games (14), and Starting applications (10) than in the three seasons before each season. "We are very happy with him," says coach Dardai. "He must now stay tuned, be diligent, and its shape is stabilised."
At Hertha, they have have always thought a lot of the young from their own offspring. In the last game before Pal Dardai, so almost exactly four years, Medium-sized, with just 17 for the first Time in the squad of a Bundesliga team. His career can be considered to be almost a prototype for the handling Dardais with talents from their own Academy. The Hungarian does not throw players from the youth into the water, to look at times, whether you are able to swim. He makes you good, your seahorses, before he delivers them to the hardships of the Men's game. "The Vision we once had of him, has reached the Maxi-maximum," says Ungar. "Winning the ball, the vertical game, he does that very well. He is head the ball strongly, has a good shot, crosses very well and is very disciplined."
Plattenhardt? Not A Problem!
Mittelstädt has also let the seemingly hopeless Position behind Plattenhardt not be discouraged. Herthas the only German national player seemed untouchable, played, actually, always. In the meantime, this is different. Medium urban is still not a regular player in the classical sense; i.e., one that always plays from the beginning, no matter what tactics and against no matter which opponent. But if you think that in modern football, the stem not only from eleven players, but from thirteen or fourteen, then you must feel awesome this season very well as a regular player. Nevertheless, he says: "You can never be sure."
However, that Hertha has made the world Cup participants Plattenhardt in the summer, so penetrative as a possible sale of the object into the window, could be understood as indirect appreciation for Central city: We the to trust you. And what is striking is that Dardai and Medium-sized can, not least, against the great enemy from the beginning has play: Schalke, twice against Bayern, the front-runner Dortmund, against Leipzig and most recently in the victory over Gladbach. "Every game is the same for me," says Mittelstaedt. "Because with each game the experience grows."
favorite position? Left-back!
- Defensively, has improved mittelstädt. Nevertheless, he had still, he says, even physically. And his right foot will improve – although he has met in the Cup final against Bayern the 1:0. Mittelstädt has the advantage that it can occupy on the left-hand side as well as every Position in the back four, in midfield, in a three-chain and at the front in an attacking three in a row. "If I could choose a Position, then the left rear," he says. "Because I feel myself at home. This is my ideal position because I consider it as my strength to carry the game from back to front. I can't say that I feel the front left side of uncomfortable."More about

Perspective are his chances at left-back. "If he plays back, he is a bit brave," says Pal Dardai. "He defends to the front, and with momentum in the fight – that is his character."
