Hertha BSC have announced U21 coach Ante Čović will take over from Pal Dardai at the end of the season.
“For me as someone who was born in Berlin, played for Hertha and worked for the club for years, it is like a dream come true. Hertha has never just been a normal employer for me – this club is my passion and has a place in my heart. I will bring passion and emotion into the team. That’s only possible together. I am a team player who is very approachable and I value hard work. That is the only way you can fuel enthusiasm and keep developing. I was able to experience the Hertha fans as a player and I’m really looking forward to doing it again as the coach. My excitement couldn’t be greater,” said Čović.
