The RBK job makes Kjetil Rekdal relevant as Hertha Berlin coach

Barely a day after Kjetil Rekdal (53) was introduced as the new Rosenborg coach, he is connected to another coaching job.

According to the German major newspaper Blid, Rekdal’s new job will make him more and more interesting for the Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin.

It writes Dagbladet.

Former player

Rekdal himself played for the Berlin club from 1997 to 2000, and did well during his time there.

In previous interviews, the new RBK coach has also never hidden that he looks back on his time in Hertha with joy, and that he loves the club.

Now his new career step will make him more relevant as a coach for the Berlin club, where he and current Rosenborg player Per Ciljan Skjelbred have made a name for themselves as players.

Can take a Sunshine

In an interview with Dagbladet earlier this year, the 53-year-old admitted that he had a dream of trying out abroad one last time.

Rekdal has previously been the coach of Belgian Lierse and the German 3rd league club Kaiserslautern. Hertha Berlin, on the other hand, is a top team that is currently in 11th place in the Bundesliga.

If Rekdal has success in the RBK job, then he can do as Solskjær – become a coach for the club that made him famous internationally.
