Hertha BSC won the derby against Union Berlin 3-1 on Friday. Nevertheless, the Big City Club is in eleventh place with eleven points and, despite the victory, further behind Union Berlin.
Jens Lehmann (51), who sits on the supervisory board of the Hertha limited partnership, should answer questions on Sport1 in a double pass on St. Nicholas Sunday. But the discussion about the future of Hertha was rather a series of evasive maneuvers by Jens Lehmann.
Jens Lehmann: “You don’t have to answer all the questions”
At the beginning of the Hertha debate, moderator Thomas Helmer asked what Union was doing better than Hertha. Lehmann: “You don’t have to answer all the questions.”
Even then, the fans in the social networks reacted with incomprehension and especially accused Helmer of not having followed up.
Bobhayle tweeted, for example: “A real moderator would have drilled into Lehmann why Union is better than Hertha …”
After a short one, Lehmann was asked whether the Windhorst millions were well invested at Hertha. Then the former national goalkeeper began again to wriggle around clear answers and caused a stir with a confused statement. “If you are invited here, it is of course also the case that probably no one else had the time.”
Lehmann was only invited at short notice for the injured Max Kruse (Union Berlin) on Saturday evening.
Lehmann stated that as a supervisory board he was not allowed to express himself in public. He sees Lars Windhorst’s investment as a pioneer in German football. “Many other clubs would like such a model,” said Lehmann and asked for patience. “The long-term path will lead upwards, the investment is sustainable and Windhorst is motivated in the long term.”
Also moderator Thomas Helmer in the criticism
In general, the fans were critical of the issue of the one-two. After the violent criticism of Steffen Freund’s racist statements last week, the experts were clearly trying not to cause a stir again.
At the end of the Hertha debate, Helmer was kind to Lehmann with a wink. “Jens, next time you will get all the questions in advance.” (Eha)
