Captain of Hertha, Vedad Ibišević, is in an amazing shape at the beginning of the new season.The BiH striker scored six goals. Ibišević is still negotiating the extension of contract with the team from the German capital, which expires at the end of the next season.“We are still discussing the contract. At the moment, everything looks fine. I have already said that I want to stay here. Will I sign before the winter break?
