It was precisely this scenario that DFL and the individual clubs in the league were particularly afraid of. Complete quarantine of a team is now required. It catches Hertha from Berlin. Several positive tests this week ensure that the Berliners have to be completely quarantined. Hertha will therefore have to make up at least three games. Not exactly a gift in the relegation battle.
That was one too many! At Hertha from Berlin there have been several positive corona tests in the last few days. With serious consequences. The entire team has to be in quarantine, which throws up the tight schedule in the relegation battle. The Berliners have been withdrawn from circulation for at least three games.
Already four times isolation on Thursday
This week is something to forget for Berliners! It was announced on Thursday morning that three Hertha residents were infected with the corona virus. In addition to head coach Pal Dardai, kicker Dodi Lukebakio and assistant coach Admir Hamzagic also met. All three had to go into isolation, as well as co-trainer Zecke Neuendorf, who is considered the contact person one. The Berliners thought that the greatest disaster would be kept away from the club. Plans were made to go into isolation with the team as a whole.

The club was confident and stated that the game could be maintained through the isolation. On Thursday evening, however, an infection was also detected in Marvin Plattenhardt. That, in turn, was too much for the health department. The entire team has to be quarantined at home for two weeks. Due to the upcoming English week, three Bundesliga games for the Berliners will be canceled. These will have to be made up for. Hertha is threatened with an insane program in the basement!
Friedrich: „Assume circumstances“
Certainly not an easy situation. Arne Friedrich, as the sports director, said: “Due to the cases that have occurred, we are now forced to a 14-day quarantine at home. From a health point of view, this is absolutely the right step. From a sporting point of view, of course, this affects us, because we now have to play six Bundesliga games by the end of the season on May 22, 2021 in the fight to stay in the league in May. The team will keep fit during the quarantine at home with virtual training units. ”The sports director also emphasized that the circumstances would be accepted and that everything would be balanced for the final sprint. However, Hertha is hardly left with anything else.
