Hertha BSC’s former captain Dick van Burik was shocked by his former club’s performance after the first leg of the relegation. In particular, the style of play and the way he deals with the fans make him shake his head. On the other hand, he finds words of praise for the supporters of Hertha.

Sharp criticism: Dick van Burik (48) no longer believes in saving his Hertha. After the first leg defeat against HSV in the “Bild” he draws a sobering conclusion. “Hertha had no grip, no speed, no aggression. You can’t win like that!” The Dutchman has no sympathy for the fleeing from the fans after the final whistle. “You have to go there, even if things aren’t going well.”

Praise for the fans: Van Burik seems impressed by the Hertha fans. “The fans were the best man Hertha had on this bad Thursday evening.” The Olympic Stadium was sold out with almost 75,000 spectators.

Missed rescue: Hertha only slipped into relegation on the last matchday with the defeat against Borussia Dortmund. Previously, she missed several opportunities to save herself early. Now the first relegation threatens in ten years.
