The 55-year-old announced his surprising decision on Tuesday, 11 February 2020 on his Facebook page, pointing to a lack of "trust on the part of those involved". The Bundesliga football club confirmed Klinsmann's move. "Therefore, after much deliberation, I have come to the conclusion that I will make my position as head coach available to Hertha and return to my original long-term task as a member of the Supervisory Board," it says.
According to the "Bild" newspaper, Klinsmann is said to have said goodbye to the Hertha team on Tuesday before training. The former national coach had taken over the position with the Berlin team on 27 November 2019 and was to remain head coach until the end of the season. He had previously become a member of the Hertha supervisory board and wanted to return to that position later.
