'Stendel’s got us playing, Hearts are back' - Fans song about Tynecastle boss goes viral
A clip of Hearts fans singing a new song about their manager went viral
Despite Hearts' lowly 11th position in the Ladbrokes Premiership, there is a feel-good factor among the club's support regarding manager Daniel Stendel.
The German boss already has his own song which caught the eye of Hearts fans on social media over the weekend.
Supporters were filmed singing about Stendel's influence since taking over from Craig Levein ahead of the 3-3 draw with St Johnstone in Perth on Saturday.
The fans sang: "We’ve got a diamond Daniel Stendel. A German that came from Barnsley. He brought in high-press attacking football, he came in to save HMFC. We’ve got Souttar at the back, Boycey in attack, Stendel’s got us playing, Hearts are back!"
The 45-year-old was somewhat taken aback by the song, showing his appreciation at the game.
He said: “It’s a good sign for our work but the important thing is they support our team. If the team play the way I want, they will support the team. We need a close relationship between our fans and our team.
“I think we do a lot of things in the last couple of weeks to change it and I am happy about this. When the supporters sometimes sing my name, it’s nice. But when they support the goals and our performance on the pitch, this is the best way to show me we have unity in the club.”
