Klinsmann Steps Down
Jürgen Klinsmann has stepped down as Germany coach, to be replaced by his assistant Joachim Löw.
“I feel burned out,” said a tearful Klinsmann, adding that he would take a six-month vacation. “I have a great wish to be back with my family and my children.”
That six month vacation suggests Klinsmann won’t be replacing Bruce Arena with immediate effect, but with Arena’s contract running to the end of the year it might all work out very nicely.
One scenario on the rumour mill has Klinsmann installed as head coach with Sigi Schmid as his assistant, and The Bruce “promoted” to head of youth development.
