After the defeat in the relegation first leg against HSV, Hertha has its back to the wall. Felix Magath still has a chance to avoid relegation. Otherwise he faces the same fate as Otto Rehhagel in 2012.

Coach without an idea: Felix Magath (68) looks at a loss after his Hertha lost 1-0 to Hamburger SV. At the press conference he repeated the statements of the past few weeks and looked for excuses for his team’s poor performance. Apparently there are no solutions for the lack of presence and the lack of a leader on the pitch of the coaches. Magath had brought a new spirit to the squad after taking office. But that is long gone.

Questionable statements: The criticism of Magath’s management style is getting louder. In recent weeks, the coach has repeatedly pointed out that his team will probably play relegation – although Hertha was in 15th place at the time. Some observers now accuse the 68-year-old of further unsettling the team with his statements. This is reported by “t-online”.

Parallels to 2012: The pattern of 2012 could be repeated for the Berliners: Back then, too, Hertha relied on an aging coaching icon to prevent relegation. After a disastrous season, the club’s management hired Otto Rehhagel. But even “King Otto” could no longer save Hertha. In the relegation, his team lost to Fortuna Düsseldorf. For Rehhagel it was the last coaching station. Ten years later, Felix Magath could have a similar fate.
