Herthas Torwart Kraft – „Mein Vater wäre stolz auf mich“

Vor der Partie gegen Mainz 05 spricht Herthas Stammtorwart über einen schmerzlichen Verlust in seiner Jugend, über seine Vertragsverlängerung in Berlin und schlechte Musik in der Kabine.

Thomas Kraft wirkt entspannt, als er zum Interview empfängt. Der mäßige Auftritt gegen Freiburg (0:0) am vergangenen Spieltag, die anschließenden Pfiffe der eigenen Fans – Herthas Stammtorwart bringt das nicht aus der Ruhe. Der 25-Jährige weiß, dass er trotz der bisher holprigen Rückrunde mit nur 27 Gegentoren die aktuell drittbeste Abwehr der Liga vor sich hat und der Aufsteiger nur noch wenige Punkte vom Erreichen des Saisonziels entfernt ist: Klassenerhalt.
