Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin have today announced the departure of head coach Tayfun Korkut following Saturday’s 2-0 defeat against Borussia Mönchengladbach.
“Firstly, I’d like to thank Tayfun Korkut and his assistant Ilija Aračić for the work they have done at Hertha BSC since November,” said Fredi Bobic. “After a promising start with seven points from the first four games and a positive trend, we’ve now clearly analysed the performances and results from the nine games in the second half of the season. We came to the conclusion that we needed another change of coach.”
Korkut added: “For several reasons, we unfortunately couldn’t build on the good start we made here. I would like to thank everyone here for the open and honest cooperation. I hope the club can avoid relegation and I wish the whole Hertha family all the best for the future.”
Hertha currently find themselves in 17th on level points with Stuttgart in the relegation playoff.
