Hertha Berlin sack Sandro Schwarz with Pál Dárdai set to take charge

As reported by Florian Plettenberg, Hertha Berlin have sacked head coach Sandro Schwarz with former head coach Pál Dárdai set to take over until the end of the season. 

Schwarz took over as head coach last year with the hopes of steering Hertha further up the table after a couple of rocky seasons which nearly saw them relegated. 

However, after a 5-2 loss to Schalke 04, Hertha are bottom of the Bundesliga table and 4 points from safety. With six games remaining, Hertha are set to announce the dismissal of Schwarz and the introduction of Pál Dárdai. 

Dárdai is a familiar face to Hertha fans and previously coached the club on two separate occasions. The Hungarian has also helped Hertha secure Bundesliga safety in the past. The club’s bosses will be hoping he can do it again with just a handful of matches remaining. 

Dárdai is due to take training on Monday morning before Hertha’s match against Werder Bremen on Saturday. The club’s remaining matches include Bayern Munich, VfB Stuttgart, FC Köln, VfL Bochum, and VfL Wolfsburg on the final day.
