Typhoon Korkut ubernimmt
Hertha Berlin sack coach Darday
Pal Darday is no longer coach of Hertha BSC. The German soccer team released the Hungarian and introduced Tyvon Korkut, his successor. The club is just one point away from the relegation zone after four consecutive matches without a win.
Hertha Berlin pulls the emergency brake due to the current sporting crisis and separates from coach Bal Darday. The Bundesliga club announced the end of Hungary two days after a realistic draw against its relegated rival FC Augsburg (1:1). This was the fourth consecutive league game without a win. Assistant coach Zeke Neundorf and Admir Hamzic will also have to leave.
At the same time, the club introduced a successor to Dardi, Typhoon Korkut and he will take over at the end of the season. The 47-year-old has already coached Hannover 96, 1. Kaiserslautern, Bayer Leverkusen, VFP Stuttgart. Ilja Aracic comes to Berlin with him.
According to the announcement, sporting director Freddy Bobic said: “We would like to express our thanks to Pal Darday for his work. He led the team in a difficult situation last season and has remained in line under difficult circumstances.” But now it’s time for something new: “With Tayfun Korkut we would like to give the team new motivation and new input. Tayfun has already proven in the past that he not only stabilizes the team, but also with his meticulous and emotional style can advance his work and his idea of football.”
Korkut, who has been unemployed since October 2018, says: “I would like to thank Freddy Bobic and all the officials at Hertha BSC for their trust. I am full of energy and really looking forward to this exciting assignment.”
This is the second time Dardaei has left the team. The former Hertha player had already coached the club’s professional team from 2015 to 2019 before resigning from the position himself. As coach of the U-16 team and talent development coordinator, he remained with the club. In January of this year he was promoted to the position of Technical Director for the second time.
Hertha BSC is far from behind its claims. After the 13th round, the club has collected only 14 points and is now 14th in the table. Only one point separates the team from the relegation zone occupied by FC Augsburg.
