Jurgen Klinsmann steps down as head coach of Hertha Berlin

Jurgen Klinsmann has abandoned his role as head coach of Bundesliga outfit Hertha Berlin and will resume his position on the club’s supervisory board. It can be recalled that the former Bayern Munich, Germany, and USA coach assumed the role after the dismissal of Ante Covic.

Klinsmann, 55, oversaw just 10 games in charge including one in the DFB Cup round of 16. He won 3 and lost 4, as the results took the club from being level on points in the relegation playoff with Fortuna Dusseldorf to 6 points clear of 16th place.

“After long consideration, I’ve come to the decision to give up my position as head coach and return to my original long-term role on the supervisory board,” Klinsmann wrote on his Facebook page in an open letter to Hertha fans.

“In November, we agreed to the club’s wish to help out in a difficult time with a highly competent team,” he continued.

“We were progressing really well in a relatively short period of time and have managed to put six points between us and the play-off spot, despite difficult games, thanks to the support of many people. I’m convinced Hertha will achieve its goal of remaining in the Bundesliga.”
