The still ailing Defender Franz could complete only individual training with the ball. On Friday, the Apple with the capital Club for three years had signed. "Maik is a very versatile, uncompromising defensive player who has plenty of experience." "To do so he is a good type that will fit quite well without a doubt, in our team," said Berlin's Managing Director Michael Preetz.

A year ago, babbel was shocked days as Hertha coach in his first, because the fitness values when the Laktattests were desolate. "Some players were sloppy and lazy on holiday," babbel had complained. Captain Andre Mijatovic promised: "so something like a year ago happened to us again."
