Bobic confirms Korkut will stay on as Hertha coach

Hertha BSC chief Fredi Bobic has backed Tayfun Korkut to stay on as head coach.
Relegation-threatened Bundesliga outfit Hertha BSC will stick with Hertha coach Tayfun Korkut despite failing to register a win in their last eight Bundesliga games.

"I have complete confidence in him. And the team feel exactly the same way," said Hertha managing director for sport Fredi Bobic on Tuesday, according to DPA.

He also emphasized, however, that Hertha must take something from Saturday's Bundesliga game against Borussia Mönchengladbach.

Bobic was speaking the day after it was announced that Arne Friedrich will leave his position as sporting director with immediate effect.

Differences over the decision on Korkut's future did not play a decisive role in Friedrich's departure, said the Hertha chief.
