Hertha team in isolation

Struggling Hertha Berlin players and staff were sent into isolation for 13 days after coach Pal Dardai, assistant coach Admir Hamzagic and striker Dodi Lukebakio tested positive for COVID-19, the club said. Sports director Arne Friedrich, who has the appropriate coaching license, will provisionally take over as coach with the team living together until then and leaving their designated base only for matches and training. “We are forced to isolate due to the positive cases,” Friedrich said. “We will limit contacts and have daily PCR tests to have as much safety as possible. We’ve to accept this challenge as a team and do everything so we can play the remaining games successfully.” Hertha is deep in relegation trouble with six games left in the season and travels to fellow struggler Mainz 05 on Sunday. Hertha is in 15th place on 26 points, as many as 16th-placed Arminia Bielefeld which occupies the relegation playoff spot.
