Eventually, Pal Dardai comes to speak then but still at the carnival, "the carnival in Hungary", is also the kind of the time. On Saturday, FSV Mainz 05, have a look in Berlin's Olympic stadium (15.30 clock/Sky). A club that has self-appointed and officially to the carnival club. "So in the old time, in socialism," Dardai, had been the carnival for the children in the Kindergarten and in the primary school, the ranges in Hungary, up to the eighth class. Everything is not as large as in the German carnival strongholds of these days. Unless you've invited a couple of buddies to his home, would have been dressed in women's clothes, like Dardai told.
use of Torunarigha uncertain
The 42-year-old Hungarian in a good mood on Thursday night, the women almost. His team has trained well, the mood fits, and yet the coach of Hertha BSC looks carefree on the next home game for the Berliners are expecting up to 40,000 spectators. Because of injuries and suspensions Dardai is once again forced to Switch to human. Players such as Marvin Plattenhardt, Peter Pekarik and Vladimir Darida are still injured, or are blocked by Karim Rekik. The Dutch centre-back had seen a week ago in the very narrow defeat of the Berlin at FC Bayern, a Red card and was subsequently locked out by the DFB for playing a game. It is necessary to replace Dardai. However, since his first Deputy, Jordan Torunarigha, is coming off an injury-induced failure phase, its use is uncertain.
"Everything's good, everything is okay," said the 21-year-old Torunarigha still, as he left on Thursday, a step to streamline the training grounds. Due to problems at the Achilles tendon, the talented Central defender has failed against Bayern. The chances of his Intervention on Saturday against Mainz Dardai numbered to 50 percent. "It is not sure whether he can play. He has tried it today, and that's good,“ says Dardai.
Lustenberger could be back in the defensive
Herthas coach is just received by him, there is no risk, ever Torunarigha was returned from Überehrgeiz too early in the Competition. The runs with him through the entire season. In September and October, he had to retire due to problems at the Achilles tendon. He should be up Saturday fully operational, would also tactical Changes. With Torunarigha in the starting line-up Dardai would prefer a three defensive line. "Without Jordan, we stay at a four-chain," says Dardai.
Then, Fabian Lustenberger would be the left Position in defence, on the side of Niklas Stark. Would flanked by the Duo of Valentino Lazaro on the right track and Maximilian Mittelstädt (on the left).
The storm will hold on to Dardai, the last of them to Davie Selke as the Central peak. Team captain Vedad Ibisevic, the lock last, for tactical reasons, and a game for the back round kick-off in Nuremberg was no longer in the starting line-up, will also start against Mainz on the substitutes ' bench. "He deals with the Situation absolutely professionally, he was never offended, we have a honest approach," says Dardai.
Above all, it goes against Mainz (first leg 0:0) about to land the first home victory this year. Actually, the Berlin-based waiting since 8. December 2018 (1:0 against Frankfurt) on a Threesome in the Olympic stadium. After draws against Augsburg and Schalke (2:2), and a 0:1 against Wolfsburg, the Cup followed against Bayern and 1:1 against Bremen, as the Berlin in injury time the goal began. "If we let Wolfsburg, were our home games now, really," says Dardai. The Team have shown good combinations, has come to many scoring chances, which have often looked after football, "but we need to take advantage of our opportunities better," says Dardai.More about

"what is Clear is that we want to win the game against Mainz," says Manager Michael Preetz. The Saturday of the Carnival could be an appropriate time. For this case, Pal Dardai would be even willing to make a bit of a carnival. "If we win correctly, then I'm ready...," says Dardai in the report round and smiles: "What should I wear?" A Dirndl, okay, he says, "but I have to ask my wife if I'm allowed to."
