A curious look on the world that surrounds him, has preserved Jürgen Klinsmann. At least it seems so when he sits at the Friday lunch in the media room of his new employer Hertha BSC in the Berlin district of Westend. When he speaks of him in the history of the city fascinating, in which he will be, at least temporarily, at home. "For me, it is enormously exciting to be in these buildings," said Klinsmann about.
the business says the rooms of the Hertha, which housed troops after the Second world war, the occupation of the British. He says his daily trip to the workplace, which leads him on his way from Berlin-Mitte, in almost the extreme West of the city only through the Brandenburg gate, because this is already closed to traffic. You know, in the meantime, but you have to get used to it: Jürgen Klinsmann is the coach for Hertha BSC - surrounded by a prominent team of coaches, about Alexander Nouri (former Werder Bremen) and in the case of Jogi Löw borrowed Federal goalkeeping coach Andreas Köpke belong to.
With the traditional desire for fame and honour in professional football the common motive of profit maximization Klinsmanns commitment have nothing to do, say it in its environment. Nevertheless, money plays in this story, of course, a Central role. That Klinsmann makes its emergency service to be exceptionally rewarding - according to Bild-Zeitung flow until the end of the season, two million Euro, are not denied by its advocates, but in the sense of the industry practices to be interpreted. A man of his position could not afford to appear like a good Samaritan, it was in this commercial, a question of credibility and validity.
Klinsmann recalled that he had seen as a Boy, his first game in a stadium with a Hertha-Flag,
still busy Klinsmann when it comes to negotiations and contracts, the Swiss lawyer André Major. Also in the discussions in the house of the Hertha President, Werner Gegenbauer, the specialist was on the telephone. Gross had prepared more than 20 years, Uli Hoeness Trouble, as the striker Klinsmann moved to Bayern (Hoeness about Gross: "The offers to you after five minutes, You and he pulls you over the table"), even of a ban to the lawyers of the speech was. That was probably understand, at best, as a symbolic act, but nonetheless revealing: Gross has contributed to his relentless style to Klinsmanns Image, after which it this at the end just yet, especially for the money.
"Never, never, never about money
the Latter is now being circulated also at VfB Stuttgart, where Klinsmann for various management activities and head offices in the conversation was, both in the times of the President, Wolfgang Dietrich, as well as after its withdrawal. spoken" In football around told, he had four, five million euros per year to earn, the collaboration was a failure circles outside of Stuttgart. In Klinsmanns bearing, however, is assured that it is aware of "never, never, never about money," with the VfB, just because you want to use the Image of the covetous of Swabia did not. After all, Klinsmann now knows one thing: The topic of VfB, his hometown club and the first employer in the Bundesliga, has died for him.
Now, Hertha BSC is to be of service, Lord, if it is the same - to distinguish what is the real Customer, the Investor Lars Windhorst is. He has invested 224 million euros in the professional Department of the club, Klinsmann's first as a Supervisory Board installed, then also as a coach through the set. Hertha-Manager Michael Preetz suggested an intimate proximity of Klinsmanns to the Club, as he pointed out on Tuesday that, in the earlier case of Klinsmann asked if he could help out as a coach. And Klinsmann recalled that he himself had seen as a Boy, his first game in a stadium with a Hertha Flag in Hand, in Stuttgart; his late father Siegfried was a Hertha Fan. Preetz had, in turn, open to happen when and under what circumstances the contact Klinsmann should be (the last time apparently, in the final phase of the Pal Dardais commitment, at the end of the last season). But as serious as it sounds in Preetz now, it has not been good. On exploration, the contact went out.
At Hertha BSC a whole lot of changes, and not only by the fact that now a former national coach supervises the Elf and the press conference room is now filled with alone with the presence of Klinsmanns. On Friday Preetz, which was yet always something of the last instance in the Hertha asked, hardly, and not only that, in the case of Klinsmann, the novelty factor is greater. Above all, the capital of the financial entrepreneur Windhorst is now showing the effect. Long-established Herthaner may have believed that one could more or less continue as before, just with a lot more money. But it can't be because Windhorst half of the store belongs to - and the need for action to not be overlooked due to the sporting crisis.
Mourinho would it not have been
Windhorst is now, logically, a player in the Club, at his first press conference Klinsmann called his name 15 Times. And to emphasize not to, for example, that he is there to save the football business, inexperienced entrepreneurs a million dollar mistake, as José Mourinho. People who push with their money in the football , in front of often, you could buy success with big names bring. That's true, but only if there are the right people - Mourinho (now for the but funny a lot of money at Tottenham Hotspur under come) it would not have been, apart from the fact that he would be presumed changed never to Hertha BSC.
But investors think holding traditionally large.
In the choice of the next Coach Klinsmann should have a say in part of his duties, however, which is now harder, because he now renamed himself again as a coach, what is the original intention. The Association, he has monkey by stepping in time to probe the market and a suitable successor to pick and choose, said Klinsmann. Longer than until the end of the season he doesn't want to do the Job.
The idea of the Hertha fans, according to the Berlin-born and ex-Hertha-Profi Niko Kovac takes over in the summer, is likely to remain just that: wishful thinking. Currently, Kovac excludes a commitment in Berlin, according to the POI information. He tends to take a job abroad. Who could then come in? Good Question. Safe is only: Who knows Klinsmann, the white now options thought-out to be, which so far is not even fantasized would have been. And get alone by Klinsmann for a starting bonus like Nouri, who was not suffered to its predecessor stations in Bremen and Ingolstadt very well.
"We need points. No matter how"Jürgen Klinsmann ahead of his debut as Hertha coach against Dortmund, there were no points.
This future Klinsmann pushes away but still very far. "We need points. No matter how," he said on Friday; questions of Aesthetics are employed until Further notice in the rear. "We need to get us through a lot of commitment, energy, willingness to run and battle readiness self-confidence", says Jürgen Klinsmann. And sounds like a coach.
