Hertha BSC loses the first leg of the Bundesliga relegation against Hamburger SV. The network scoffed at a “horrible performance” by the capital club. In addition, coach Felix Magath seemed “completely at a loss”, his words after the game were a “declaration of bankruptcy”.
It was a sobering evening of football for all Hertha BSC fans. The capital club lost the first leg of the Bundesliga relegation at home 0-1 against Hamburger SV – now there is a risk of relegation to the 2nd Bundesliga.
While the HSV players formed a closed circle after the game and represented solidarity, the Hertha players stood helplessly and scattered on the lawn of the Olympic Stadium. The appearance of coach Felix Magath’s team caused frustration and ridicule on the internet.
“Today there was a team with a lot of will and fans on one side. On the other hand, an insecure group without the necessary bite and in the end without closing ranks with the fans!” commented a user on Twitter.
Hertha’s appearance was “terrible, destructive and without any effort to be creative”.
The biggest problem “is that from the beginning Magath wasn’t after content, just attitude and drive. That may work at a certain level, but against a reasonably capable opponent it will be difficult alone,” complained another.
Hertha is “dead as a team, so many are not correct”. Magath was “simply out of date as a coach”.
As a Hertha fan, it is “difficult to keep believing in the second leg, especially since Magath seems completely at a loss”.
“We acted like a Bundesliga club, but HSV did too,” said the 68-year-old football coach after the first leg on TV broadcaster Sky. He hoped that “Hertha would play even better in the second leg” and “sometime be the happier team”. , said the coach.
Words that stunned the internet. Magath had “talked about his neck and neck. After the footballing and tactical declaration of bankruptcy, that was also a verbal one.”
The Hertha trainer’s analysis was “as helpless” as the 90 minutes before. It was “shocking how you can have such a perception”.
The “horrible performance of his team” was a “complete failure of Magath”.
Some Hertha supporters said that “our last chance” to stay in the Bundesliga would only be possible if the coach was fired immediately. Otherwise, Magath will “declare relegation to be beneficial for the club.”
