DAVIE SELKE threw his shirt to a fan by way of apology after his Hertha Berlin side were beaten 2-0 by fierce rivals Union in the derby over the weekend.
But the German forward was left stunned when it was tossed straight back at him.The striker was left gutted at the end of the match[/caption]
Hertha stars went over to their travelling supporters after being handily taken care of by their traditionally smaller rivals.
They were greeted by fury from the fans, who weren’t at all interested in Selke’s offering.
Former Liverpool ace Taiwo Awoniyi got Union off to the perfect start, when he notched his eighth goal in just 12 Bundesliga games since departing Anfield after 8 minutes.
Christopher Trimmel then made it 2-0 on the half hour mark, with Selke and Co subsequently mustering just two shots on target in the entire game.
The result means that Hertha already trail Union by seven points after just 12 matches this season.
While Union, who have very recently been in the second tier, sit fifth – Hertha are 14th – just two points above the relegation play-off position.

Hertha have already taken a couple of hidings this term.
They were beaten 6-0 by Bayern Munich back in August.
And if that wasn’t bad enough, RB Leipzig trounced them 5-0 less than a month later.
Selke hardly featured in this derby defeat, only coming on in the 86th minute.
The striker, who joined Hertha in 2017, is yet to score in eight Bundesliga outings this season.
