Hertha BSC separates from trainer Bruno Labbadia and manager Michael Preetz.

According to dpa information, the decision will be announced by the Berlin Bundesliga club on Sunday.

Several Berlin media had previously reported on the duo's end.

On Saturday evening, 20 minutes was enough, and the Berliners were once again shown the whole dilemma of this season.

Maximilian Mittelstädt was over-motivated in the penalty area against Bremen's Romano Schmid.

Davie Selke had used the penalty to make it 1-0 for Werder (10th).

On the other hand, Matheus Cunha missed his chance from the point miserably (21st).

As with the 0: 3 against Hoffenheim, Hertha missed a penalty.

As on Tuesday, there was a defeat in the end: 1: 4 (1: 2).

Werder pulled the Berliners deeper into the crisis.

Even before the kick-off, around 250 fans called for Michael Preetz to resign at a demonstration in front of the Olympic Stadium.

Deletion of Lukebakio as the final act


0: 1 in Bielefeld, 0: 0 in Cologne, 0: 3 against Hoffenheim, now 1: 4 - even against competitors from the bottom third of the table it is no longer enough for the experienced coach's eleven who fell to 14th place in the table.

With the removal of Dodi Lukebakio from the squad, Labbadia had documented that there is also a lack of fundamental principles: "Stand still, not be ready to make the way - we cannot afford that in the situation."

Farewell after nine months: Bruno Labbadia followed Alexander Nouri at Hertha in April 2020


Nobody followed Ömer Toprak in the 29th minute.

The Bremer headed to 2-0.

The fact that Jhon Cordoba set the tone to catch up with the 1: 2 (45th + 2) was irrelevant.

It was called off again early: Leonardo Bittencourt increased to 3: 1 (57th) and thus kept Bremen's maximum efficiency rate: three shots on goal, three hits.

Josh Sargent made the final decision with a 4-1 win (77th).

“We had more chances against Werder Bremen than Leverkusen or Gladbach.

If you put it all together, we concede too easy goals and miss too many chances.

It's a huge disappointment, ”said Labbadia right after the game.


“We lack the arguments.

We're the last ones to talk nicely, ”said the coach, who described the Bremen game as a“ brutal disappointment ”.

“That's a shitty feeling, we'll see everything else.

The point here is that the club is successful and that we get on track.

That is the crucial thing, then we will see how the coming days are. "

Hertha now wants to master the relegation battle with new strengths at the sporting management level.

The Bremen team could now leave that in their upcoming games against Schalke and in Bielefeld.
