After the 1: 4 derby defeat against Union, there was a scandal in the Berlin Olympic Stadium.
Some Ultras asked the Hertha professionals to take off their jerseys and take off in front of the east curve because – that was the message – they were not worth wearing these jerseys.
An action that was not well received and partly led to Harscher criticism.
For managing director Fredi Bobic, a “line” had been exceeded – and the team itself set a clear sign after the 2-0 against Stuttgart when she refused to go into the curve.
This decision was made before the game, regardless of the result.
Since this had been positive from Hertha’s point of view, the jubilee party failed to materialize.
But now there were clear signals of relaxation.
Before the kick-off against Mainz, the Hertha players went into the curve and were received loudly.
The first eleven and the twelfth man probably pull together again.
