Hertha BSC is facing a major upheaval after successfully staying up. As the “Tagesspiegel” reported on Tuesday night, CFO Ingo Schiller will leave the Berlin Bundesliga club after more than 20 years.
In addition to sports director Fredi Bobic, Schiller is currently one of two managing directors. For the coming season, Hertha also needs a new coach after the departure of rescuer coach Felix Magath. The Berliners had secured relegation by beating 2-0 on Monday evening in the relegation second leg at Hamburger SV.
Schiller joined the Hertha BSC Executive Committee in 1998 and has been Finance Director since July 2001. He has also been a member of the supervisory board of the German Football League since 2013.
Bobic had announced that he would renew the traditional Berlin club in the coming season. When he took office last summer, he was supported by two other colleagues in the club management: Carsten Schmidt as head of the management board and Ingo Schiller. After Schmidt’s withdrawal for private reasons, he would be the only remaining managing director due to Schiller’s farewell.
The first course for the new beginning is expected this week, at the end of which the general meeting is scheduled for Sunday. There are motions to vote out President Werner Gegenbauer. According to reports, the 71-year-old could resign earlier. The departure of his long companion Schiller is an indication of a fundamental new beginning at Hertha.
