"The thanks goes to the team and the fans," said the 32-year-old, who made his debut for the capital club more than 12 years ago. "It is games like the one against Hoffenheim which make playing the game fun.
"But I am lucky with anniversary games. My 200th game was a win over Gladbach and I scored that day. Last Saturday Voronin scored for us."
The interviewer pointed out that he is just 30 games away from cracking Hertha great Michael Sziedat's long-held record of 280 appearances for the club.
"All of those players like Sziedat, Beer or Horr were Hertha legends. I will not put myself under any pressure and don't follow such statistics. Yes, If you add together my appearances at club and international level, it is a lot of games, so I can't be that-bad a player," he grinned.
Dardai will be looking to mark his 251st appearance for the club with a win when Hertha play host to Hamburger SV on Saturday.
