Bundesliga “News” Big goals, wild visions: Klinsmann’s plan in Berlin – TOP STORIES

by: Adam Smith


He doesn’t have Hertha BSC before the relegation, Jürgen Klinsmann thinks many steps further. The Champions League is supposed to be bare with Hertha BSC. A title in the near future. And a team with real top stars.

Whether Mario Gotze, who was barely overseen in Dortmund, is really in the sights of the Berliners, lie-Klinsmann is open. But after the 1-0 (0-0) victory in Leverkusen, the cheeky German coach seemed happy that names like that of Germany’s gold boys at the 2014 World Cup will be in the same breath as a grey capital club in recent years.

“Through our constellation with our investor, we have completely different goals in the medium and long term and go with another one,” Klinsmann said: “Whether then ‘about Mario soder’ about other Champions League players – that becomes quite normal chest. This will be our future. We’re looking for them.”

Manager Michael Preetz, who has been in charge for transfers for a long time, now has “a completely different situation,” Klinsmann assured, who will now only remain as coach until the summer.

“This capital club will go to Europe”

But he has only ‘nimbly’ done this mission, because he already has a risen war with the Berliners as a supervisory board member. He also sees The Hertha as his project and himself as a locomotive fer these visions.

“Right now we want to get out of the relegation fight as quickly as we can,” said the 55-year-old: “But if we really want to get some air, we’ll look up. Then the ambitions are clearly defined: this capital city club will go to Europe.” In a video chat with fans at the beginning of the week, Klinsmann, who is known as a reformer, has already caused a stir by saying that Hertha “should really play for a title in three to five years”.

“We are really happy with the situation”

Klinsmann means all this seriously and is therefore in line with Lars Windhorst. The sponsor has acquired a total of 49.9 percent of Hertha’s 224 million and has already bought Hertha as a “big city club” in the price range, such as clubs in Madrid and London, before the season. After his move from the supervisory board on the coaching bench, Klinsmann now has something of a sense of awakening within three weeks. After the success at Leverkusen, he stands at seven points from four games, most recently the Hertha two in a row.

“We are really happy with the situation. A few weeks ago it looked very different,” he says. The way his teams play is “not the most gentle at the moment. But effective. And that z-hlt at this stage.”

Strong as a loser under Klinsmann

Klinsmann has also acted very similarly during his time as a national coach. In 2004 he was involved in research, lie-chst playing for the purpose. And until the home World Cup 2006, he formed a team that played successfully and attractively. In Berlin, he expelled frustration and fear surprisingly quickly. “When you’re down, the nerves are strained,” said the 1990 world champion: “When you’re down, if you have enough points. Then it can work on combination fu-ball or automatisms. At the moment there’s a lot going on about camaraderie and fighting.”

Something ‘surprise is that the regular formation so-called coach on this way nothing with Niklas Stark. The only German National Player-sae in Leverkusen for the second time for 90 minutes on the bench.
