Ferenc Sullivan 2015.02.05.
German Premier League football team has dismissed head coach Jos Lukukay and temporarily commissioned Mr. Dárdai, who is currently in charge of the Hungarian national football team and German former footballer and manager Rainer Widmayer with coaching the Berlin team. The team announced Mr. Luhukay’s dismissal on its Facebook page on Thursday and indicated that it is commissioning its former player Mr. Dárdai, together with Mr. Widmayer, to take over. Hertha is currently 17th on the 18-team Bundesliga table after losing both of its championship matches. Pál Dárdai was contracted by the German capital’s top team in 1997 and finished his professional career at Hertha in 2011, becoming coach of its under-15 teams. He is not the first Hungarian to act as Hertha BSC’s lead coach: fellow Hungarian Pál Csernai was in charge of the team between November 1990 and March 1991. via mandiner.hu and mno.hu photo: MTI-EPA-DPA/Rainer Jensen
