Pal Dardai took at the beginning of the new week, an important clarification: "My mood is excellent," said the coach of Hertha BSC. This was not come at the end of last week, perhaps all over, as Dardai had practiced the day after the 1:2-defeat against Fortuna Düsseldorf sharp criticism of the Berlin media. Two days later, there was no reason for him to revise anything. "That was very intelligent," said Dardai about his speech. "Every sentence I said is so."
But on Tuesday, in the first Training of the week, there was an event that was likely to lead to the ruin of Hungary to the mood. Shortly before the end of the unit Marko Grujic left in physio-therapeutic monitoring of the square. He was bent over, complaining of pain in the ankle and could not continue.
For Dardai this was for two reasons annoying. Because Grujic's just Grujic, one of the performers of his team. On the other, because the Serb is playing in the midfield – and that's exactly where it will be for the away game on Sunday in Hoffenheim's already tight. Arne Maier, Fabian Lustenberger and Vladimir Darida injured, and the banned Ondrej Duda, who also plays in Central midfield is missing.
Dudas Position in the attacking three series will take on Salomon Kalou. "He is the most Experienced," said Herthas coach. "He has also played in France for many years. He finds good.“ It is a variant was tested, the Dardai also on Tuesday in the training game. The Ivorians moved from the side to the center. Mathew Leckie plays on the left, on the offensive, Valentino Lazaro on the right. The two full-back positions behind them were occupied by Marvin Plattenhardt and Luke Klünter.
"We have slow players"
So the team might look like against Hoffenheim, provided Grujic is available again. As he walked from the place, suggested that it was only a precautionary measure. But, given the values Verletzungspechs looking for Hertha this season, home notice, should we expect more of the Worst. "I don't know who should be winning," said Dardai. "We have slow players."More about

After Grujics premature departure became Lazaro in addition to Per Skjelbred in the middle, theoretically, Maximilian mittelstädt would be an Option. Because of all these uncertainties, Pal Dardai has made no thoughts about his tactical approach against Hoffenheim. "First I need to build a team together," he said.
