Dardai to stay on as Hertha coach, Kicker reports

According to Kicker, Pal Dardai will stay on as coach of Hertha BSC.
Hertha BSC have reportedly decided to keep Pal Dardai as head coach following the club's relegation to the 2. Bundesliga.

The 47-year-old Hungarian coach, the club's sporting management and investor 777 Partners have agreed to continue working together in the constellation that has existed since mid-April, Kicker reports.

The Berlin club also held talks with other candidates, including former Wolfsburg coach Florian Kohfeldt, but it's now clear that the club will stick with Dardai, who returned for his third spell as coach in April.

While there will be no changes at the coaching position, there will be plenty of alterations to the squad.

According to Kicker, Hertha are looking to offload returning loan players Krzysztof Piatek, Alexander Schwolow, Deyovaisio Zeefuik, Myziane Maolida and Luca Wollschläger.

Dodi Lukébakio, Suat Serdar, Wilfried Kanga, Agustin Rogel and Lucas Tousart could also leave if suitable offers are made.

Marc Oliver Kempf and Jonjoe Kenny are said to be considering departures, Tolga Cigerci is being linked with a return to Turkey, and Oliver Christensen has reportedly attracted interest from England.

The futures of Marco Richter and Maximilian Mittelstädt are also up in the air, but Hertha want to keep the duo.
