Hertha BSC just avoided relegation because HSV was afraid of their own courage, but the chaos in the club won’t go away overnight. The management level tries to maneuver the “old lady” back into calmer waters.

Appeal to Windhorst: Hertha interim boss Thorsten Manske asked millions investor Lars Windhorst for better cooperation after the violent discord. “I beg you, let’s talk to each other and not about each other. Let us treat each other with trust and respect,” said Manske in his speech at the general meeting on Sunday. “Let’s close the rows,” the leading member of the Executive Committee shouted to Windhorst, who was sitting in the first row of exhibition hall 20.

Whistles for Windhorst and Gegenbauer: There were strong expressions of displeasure against Windhorst and against Manske’s praised ex-president Werner Gegenbauer, who was not present after his resignation on Tuesday. Million donor Windhorst wanted to speak to the members at a later date. He had recently spoken out in favor of the club boss being voted out of office because he saw his investment of 375 million euros as burned.

New election scheduled: A successor to Gegenbauer is to be elected on June 26 at an extraordinary general meeting, announced Manske, who temporarily holds the management post after Gegenbauer’s resignation.
