Darida signed for Hertha BSC from relegated Freiburg ahead of the 2015–16 season for an undislosed fee.[2] He was handed the number 6 shirt. He made an immediate impact for Hertha BSC scoring on his debut in the DFB-Pokal first-round game against Arminia Bielefeld in a 2–0 win. He got his first assist of the season through setting up Salomon Kalou in a 3–1 defeat to Borussia Dortmund.[3] On 27 September he got his first league goal of the season scroring the equaliser in a 1–1 draw away to Frankfurt.[4]

International career[edit]

On 28 May 2012, it was announced that Darida would be included in the Czech squad for the Euro 2012 tournament. He replaced injured defender Daniel Pudil.[5] In the quarter-final match against Portugal (Euro 2012), he earned his second cap, his first in an official tournament, starting in place of the injured Tomáš Rosický. He was substituted after 61 minutes for Jan Rezek and the Czech Republic lost 1–0.[6]
