"Scores to be settled"

90 more minutes of the 2020/21 season to go. It’s been challenging, it’s been exhausting, but we got eh job done! With Bundesliga status confirmed for next season, Hertha can go into the final game of the season away to Hoffenheim with the pressure off. However, the boys in blue and white have no intention whatsoever of taking it easy on Matchday 34. On the contrary: "We’ve got a lot to play for still. That’s been our attitude all week as well," said Pál Dárdai: "There is a score to be settled after they beat us in our last encounter. Besides, the higher we finish in the table, the better for the whole club. And, of course, we want to keep our unbeaten run going," said the head coach, who is hoping to make it nine games without defeat.  

Praise for Khedira – extension for Cunha

Sami Khedira will be on the pitch to help the team in Sinsheim on Saturday and, as Dárdai revealed, he will start – for the very last time, as was officially announced on Wednesday evening. "We respect this decision completely. Sami is one of the most professional footballers – an absolute top professional. I would like to thank him from the bottom of my heart. Sami came to us in a difficult situation and played a huge role in us avoiding relegation," said Arne Friedrich. Our sporting director also spoke about the currently injured Matheus Cunha, confirming that the Brazilian’s contract had been extended by a year. "I’ll keep this simple: Yes. I can confirm.," said Friedrich, concisely.
