Hertha star before the end? Secret clause leaked


Attacker Stevan Jovetic probably has no future at Hertha BSC beyond the current season. According to a media report, a secret clause in his contract will not be applied.

The old lady confirmed Jovetic’s commitment in the summer of 2021 as an option to extend his contract. According to “Bild”, however, it is impossible for this to be activated.

Because: According to the secret contract clause, the 33-year-old national player of Montenegro would have had to play 60 percent of the league games over at least 45 minutes for an automatic extension of the cooperation with the Berlin Bundesliga club during his two-year guest appearance.

However, Jovetic will no longer be able to reach this target at Hertha BSC as the season progresses. He was absent too often, mainly due to injury.

Calf problems have repeatedly bothered him in recent months. This problem zone stopped him again recently. He missed the away game at SC Freiburg on Sunday (1-1). It remains to be seen whether he will be available again against RB Leipzig on Saturday (6:30 p.m.).

In the current season, Jovetic has played twelve games in the Bundesliga so far (two goals, two assists), in 2021/2022 it was 18 (six goals, one assist) – far too few to activate the extension option.

Hertha BSC: Two years of relegation battle for Stevan Jovetic

Jovetic moved from AS Monaco to Hertha BSC from the French Ligue 1 on a free transfer. He previously played for illustrious clubs such as Inter Milan, Sevilla FC and Manchester City.

With the Berliners, the veteran is fighting relegation for the second year in a row. In the previous season, Hertha BSC only managed to stay up in the relegation duel with Hamburger SV (0:1, 2:0).

Trainer Sandro Schwarz would like to rely on Jovetic even in the current situation. “Jove can assert himself in dribbling and he has an eye for his team-mates. He’s also a goal threat, we all know what we’ve got in him,” enthused the coach recently about the experienced professional.
