Sandro Schwarz has officially been appointed new Hertha BSC coach.
Taking over from interim coach Felix Magath, Schwarz has put pen to paper on a contract until 2024 with the Berlin club.
“During our search for a new Hertha head coach, I was looking for someone with passion, emotion and the ability to excite, as well as the right technical skills. Sandro has demonstrated all of those things during his time at both Mainz 05 and Dynamo Moscow,” explained managing director for sport Fredi Bobic.
“With his personality and his positive and forward-thinking style of football, Sandro can create a connection between what happens out on the pitch and the club culture. That is what we need at Hertha BSC,” he added.
Schwarz, who recently left Dinamo Moscow, stated:
“I had a lot of very good and intense talks with Fredi Bobic. They were as open and as clear as you could hope. I’m very excited to help shape this new beginning at Hertha BSC. The club has been through a tough period and I’m really looking forward to turning that into something positive through hard work, enjoyment and lots of energy.”
