Berlin – In football, confidence is just as important as anything else when it comes to winning. Hertha entered the home game against Düsseldorf in great form after earning two victories on the bounce in the Bundesliga, and managed to keep their momentum going by adding a third success in a row. “The game was a mirror image of the last few weeks. We had a few difficult periods throughout the game but the team believed in themselves and played some really good football,” Ante Covic said gladly. “The boys were rewarded for their efforts with three fantastic goals. I’m happy for the whole Hertha family; now we can sit back and enjoy the weekend!”
Friedhelm Funkel, who celebrated his 500th Bundesliga game last night, congratulated Hertha on a “deserved victory.” “We weren’t able to build on our performances in recent weeks,” said the long-standing Fortuna head coach. “We couldn’t get tight enough to the opposition and allowed Hertha to come back into the game,” Funkel explained.
