Bobic threatens reporters after the derby bankruptcy against Union: "If you ask again, you'll get a scrubbed"


Once again Hertha BSC is in crisis. Fredi Bobic has now vacated his position as managing director. Previously, he mistyped the tone when a reporter asked a question after the derby defeat against Union Berlin.

The former Hertha managing director Fredi Bobic reacted indignantly to a question in an interview after the renewed derby defeat against Union Berlin (0: 2).

"If you ask again, you'll get a scrub," said the 51-year-old as he left an rbb reporter.

The broadcaster published the video on social media, and the WDR program "Zeigler's wonderful world of football" picked it up.

There you can see how the reporter says before an interview with Union coach Urs Fischer when asked what happened: “Better not ask.

Fredi Bobic will smack me in a moment.«

Bobic, who was relieved of his posts at Hertha shortly thereafter after the sporting failures, was apparently bothered by the repeated question about coach Sandro Schwarz's job security.

Bobic had previously expressed his confidence in the coach several times.

When asked "Can you understand that there is a coaching discussion from the outside?" he answered curtly: "No".

Bobic apologized for the incident on Monday.

“I'm very sorry, I reacted too emotionally.

That was just a saying, which of course wasn't meant that way.

You shouldn't overestimate that in football shortly after a game," he told the "Bild". 

After the last three defeats, Hertha is in the relegation battle, as in previous years.

The club is in 17th place with 14 points. Hertha brought in Benjamin Weber to replace Bobic.

He is supported by former Hertha professional Andreas “Zecke” Neuendorf.
