‘I’ll only return to coaching for top job’ – Klinsmann reveals he turned down several opportunities following USMNT departure – football news

Jurgen Klinsmann says he turned down several job opportunities ahead of the 2018 World Cup as he waits for a more high-profile role.

The German-born manager departed the U.S. national team in 2016 following a five-year stint and has been out of management since.

Klinsmann won the 2013 Gold Cup while in charge of the U.S. while leading the team to a Round of 16 spot in Brazil.

Klinsmann was replaced by Bruce Arena, whose U.S. team fell to Trinidad & Tobago on the final day of qualifying to miss the World Cup.

Having watched from afar, Klinsmann is willing to get back into coaching, but only if the right opportunity were to arise.

“Ahead of the World Cup in Russia, I had four or five inquiries from teams playing there,” Klinsmann told Sport Bild. “But I turned them down because their goal was to survive the group stages.

“I had this goal with the U.S. (at the 2014 World Cup). It’s not enough for me now.

“If (I return), I want to lead an association of a certain calibre and with the goal to reach the semifinals at the World Cup.

“But if such a situation does not come to pass in the foreseeable future, I wouldn’t mind it for family reasons. My daughter Laila still attends school. And when she attends university next year, the situation changes.”

Prior to managing the U.S., Klinsmann took charge of Germany from 2006-8, finishing third at the 2006 World Cup. 

He then moved on to a role with Bayern Munich, where he remained less than one year before being sacked.

Following Germany’s World Cup failure, Klinsmann says that that Joachim Low must reach the semifinals of Euro 2020 in order to save his job.
