Kevin-Prince Boateng praised Hertha’s sports director Fredi Bobic in the highest tones after the relegation was survived with a bang. Because he hasn’t achieved much in Berlin in a year, the veteran demands more time for the former Frankfurt doer.

Great praise: Kevin-Prince Boateng (35) finds words of praise for Hertha’s sports director Fredi Bobic (50). This reports “Sport1”. Bobic is “something like Lionel Messi among sports managers”. At the same time, the 35-year-old demands more time for the manager. “Hertha is treated in the press like a top club, like Real Madrid or FC Barcelona. If it doesn’t work after three months, people will demand your expulsion.”

Nightmare Season: The praise comes as a surprise. Despite huge investments, Hertha just saved itself from relegation in the relegation second leg last season. Fredi Bobic was also repeatedly criticized. Among other things, he is said to have signed players without consulting the coach. He faces major challenges for the coming season.

Frankfurt guarantee of success: Before moving to Hertha, Bobic led Eintracht Frankfurt to great success. After his departure, he even managed to win the Europa League this season. Boateng sees Bobic as partly responsible for the triumph and firmly believes that he can repeat the success at Hertha.
