Cunha is already in Madrid – Belfodil is training at Hertha BSC for the first time
Matthias Cunha was no longer at Schenkendorfplatz on Tuesday afternoon for the first Hertha BSC training session of the week. Meanwhile, Brazil landed in Madrid. There, at Spanish champions Atletico, the 22-year-old was to undergo a medical check-up. Official confirmation of transfer is pending. He said, ‘It was his dream to play where he is. You can’t block much there,” said Hertha’s trainer Pal Dardai.
Hertha loses a very good footballer, but Cunha also gets caught from time to time for lack of discipline on the pitch. Dardai recently publicly reprimanded his predecessor, Bruno Labadia, late last year. The club will take about 30 million euros. And thus in early 2020 RB Leipzig were paid twelve more than the Berliners for an offensive player.
Ishaq Belfodil trained with his new teammates for the first time on Tuesday. During the training game, Hertha’s entry from TSG Hoffenheim scored a straight. Dardai announced that he would give the striker time to adjust to the new environment. “But I’ll take him with me,” the coach said while watching the next Bundesliga game on Saturday evening at Bayern Munich. In Champions, the Berliners face the difficult task of scoring the first point in the third game of the season. So far 1. Losses against FC Köln and VfL Wolfsburg at home. Hertha are currently at the bottom of the league.
Only a small transfer of less than a million euros costs in Belfodil. The 29-year-old is set to replace Jhon Cordoba, who moved to Russian club FK Krasnodar for around €20 million. Dardai spoke of “good business”. In the Bundesliga, Belfodil has scored a total of 20 goals in 73 games for Hoffenheim and Werder. He almost completely missed the 2019/20 season due to a serious knee injury. The Algerian was at Hoffenheim for three years, before switching clubs several times a year.
Kevin-Prince Boateng was absent from training (back problems), but he may be ready for the game in Munich. On the other hand, defender Marten Dardai has been ruled out for two to three weeks due to an ankle injury.
