    He was doing well in the period up until his most recent injury, has struggled since then.

    It is highly frustrating how many German players seem to constantly get injured. Selke needs a good full pre-season this summer and then to stay fit and sharp for a lengthy period. Then we will be able to see his true potential. Otherwise he will become another wasted striker talent.

    was expected tbh after preseason and Cup that Selke starts the 1st match of the new season on the bench, along with Kopke.

    and even more reason why I think the German dev of strikers is the most important one (besides increase in desire for dribbling/1v1). When our senior pool is pretty shallow and then from that shallow pool, benchers............

    with Waldschmidt getting a call up faster than Selke ever did since he's still at 0 call ups. Wonder if his chances are winding down? Still a bencher for Hertha and in a few years there should be even more German striker option emerging from younger age groups. Seems like Waldshmidt's performance last season+U21 Euro convinced Low as well as showing qualities he likes.

    would say that Selke had to overperform in U21 Euro 2017 but he didn't was adequate player but not difference maker in that tourney. Than had a good season post U21 but then last season struggled.

    although Low still stated that he's following his career and what he would like to see in him. Still hard to do when your bencher.

    really hope this isn't a wasted season for him, could end up with 2 consecutive seasons not making much progress.

    to be fair, Ibisevic scored that double vs 10 men.

    The lack of scoring efficiency is what remains to be the biggest concern for Selke. He's been given the starting chances lately but has yet to capitalize, while his teammates have been able to. As he gets older, these are things he needs to prove.

    Selke returns to taking a role off the bench. As Ibisevic is made starter again and scored vs Fortuna Duesseldorf. Hertha won their 3rd straight, Dilrosun looks to be a key factor in their recent rise.

    Selke's movement and decisions in the box are just terrible. Last season he had the most assists for Hertha despite being out or not fully fit for most of the Hinrunde. With the midfield machine getting into gear that won't happen this time around either. Work rate just isn't enough...He won't get a sniff at the DFB shirt anytime soon.

    Once Ibisevic retired, Hertha will buy a new striker to replace Ibisevic.

    They have given enough time for Selke, but he is very inconsistent and unreliable. I dont think he can be a starting striker in the league from what i've seen.

    Something is missing in his game.

    HE should stay in Hertha, but i doubt Preetz is confident that Selke can be a long term replacement of Ibisevic now.

    If they are bringing in a new striker, Selke has nothing to blame but himself.
