Official | Hertha Berlin appoint Sandro Schwarz

Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin have today announced the appointment of Sandro Schwarz as head coach on a two-year contract until 2024.

“During our search for a new Hertha head coach, I was looking for someone with passion, emotion and the ability to excite, as well as the right technical skills. Sandro has demonstrated all of those things during his time at both Mainz 05 and Dynamo Moscow,” said sporting director Fredi Bobic.

“With his personality and his positive and forward-thinking style of football, Sandro can create a connection between what happens out on the pitch and the club culture. That is what we need at Hertha BSC.”

Schwarz added: “I had a lot of very good and intense talks with Fredi Bobic. They were as open and as clear as you could hope. I’m very excited to help shape this new beginning at Hertha BSC. The club has been through a tough period and I’m really looking forward to turning that into something positive through hard work, enjoyment and lots of energy.”

The 43-year-old coached Mainz between 2017 and 2019 before moving to Dynamo Moscow in 2020.
