Hertha will extend their lead player Kevin-Prince Boateng in the next few days. Manager Fredi Bobic confirmed this at the press conference. The new coach is also said to have played an important role.

Boateng stays with Hertha: Kevin-Prince Boateng (35) will also play for Hertha BSC next season. An extension “should be implemented in the next few days,” said Hertha’s managing director Bobic when introducing the new coach Sandro Schwarz.

Short, compact, clear

Schwarz has already spoken to Boateng: Schwarz flew to Berlin a few weeks ago to speak to Boateng. The conversation was “very, very good,” said Schwarz. We talked to each other “openly and clearly”. This is “a good basis for continuing to work very well together”.

Leader on and off the field: Boateng played a key role in Hertha being able to prevent relegation to the second division in the relegation. As an experienced player, he led the way when it mattered most and was also a leader in the dressing room.
