Rekdal’s name is on all the lists of possible candidates of the vacant coaching position in Hertha Berlin. His phone is ringing off the hook, and German journalists keep asking about his situation.
“Only in Berlin there are 10-12 papers that keep fighting about being first with the news,” Rekdal explained. “They are calling constantly. But I have not heard anything from Hertha.”
When asked if he would inform the press if he had been contacted, Rekdal answered that he was not sure.
However, Rekdal did admit that it is flattering to be linked with a large club like Hertha.
“It is nice, and it is not unthinkable that it may happen some time in the future, but if it is going to happen now, I really don’t know,” Rekdal stated. “I had a meeting with Vålerenga Monday, and I’m having another meeting on Tuesday. Unless something extraordinary happens, right now, it stands or falls by Vålerenga.”
