Pal Dardai has confirmed that he will depart his role as Hertha Berlin coach at the end of this current Bundesliga season.
The 43-year-old has been in charge at the Olympiastadion since quitting his managerial role with home nation Hungary in November 2015.
Dardai, who spent 14 years with Hertha as a player between 1997 and 2011, has endured a difficult run of late as the side have managed just two wins in their last 11 Bundesliga games to drop out of contention for the European qualification places ahead of next season.
Hertha have currently lost five consecutive games and are 11th in the table which has prompted the decision for Dardai to step down in the summer.

He said: “I am thankful for the chance I got here and I am proud of what we have achieved in this time together. “But sometimes there comes a time for a change.
I have always stressed that I only care about what is best for Hertha because Hertha is and will remain my home.” “We jointly reached the conclusion that a new stimulus in the summer is the right step for the team,” Hertha general manager Michael Preetz added in a club statement.
