Back to work!

Just 37 days after the final matchday of last season, our Herthaner began preparations for 2021/22. The team were split up into multiple groups and underwent various performance tests under the watchful eyes of fitness coaches Henrik Kuchno and Hendrik Vieth. Head coach Pál Dárdai was also watching from the wings. In addition to Alexander Schwolow, Niklas Stark, Maximilian Mittelstädt & Co., the coach was also able to welcome returnees Davie Selke and Dennis Jastrzembski as well as new signings Suat Serdar and Kevin-Prince Boateng.
