Hertha: Jarstein dispute goes into the next round

Rune Jarstein has been suspended from Hertha BSC since mid-August because he is said to have made disparaging remarks about goalkeeping coach Andreas Menger. The old lady wanted to settle the matter quickly and offered the Norwegian goalkeeper a termination of the contract, which ran until the summer of 2023, including a severance payment. However, Jarstein rejected this option.

According to information from the ‘Bild’, the capital club has now issued a notice of termination against the 37-year-old, which will come into effect on November 30th. Managing Director Fredi Bobic confirmed the project when asked: “We separated under labor law while observing a social grace period.”

In return, however, Jarstein has filed a lawsuit against unfair dismissal. This is also confirmed by Bobic: “Rune Jarstein is taking legal action against this.” And Klaus Mittelst├Ądt, press spokesman for the labor courts in Berlin, also commented on the Jarstein case: “I can confirm that there are proceedings by Mr. Jarstein against the termination of his employment and that on November 1, 2022 at 12.45 p.m. a conciliation hearing will take place before the Berlin Labor Court – according to the current status.” At the so-called goods date, both parties have the opportunity to come to an agreement among themselves, otherwise the case will go before the Berlin-Brandenburg Regional Labor Court.

money in the foreground?

At the moment it remains unclear why the goalkeeper refused to end his contract as he could have found a new club more easily as a player without a club. However, it is currently assumed that the Norwegian would collect a higher amount than the severance payment by the end of the contract.
