“As the head coach I need the trust of the acting persons,” the 55-year-old said.

“Especially in a relegation battle, unity, team spirit and focus on the basics are the most important elements. 

“If they are not guaranteed, I can’t live up to my potential as a head coach and fulfill my responsibility.”

Klinsmann departs Hertha Berlin who are currently six points behind the relegation zone in 14th place with just 13 matches remaining. 

He led German to a third-place finish as hosts at the 2006 FIFA World Cup.

    This is what I called dignity and self respect. Few people has this attitude. Shikena.

    From Amarachi to Klinsmann hmmmm, respect yourself and people will respect you.

    Not like our own people here in Nigeria. Amaju, Diko, Sheyi and co for instance lol. They will rather die with shame than having good names. Hmmm, interesting.

    They will keep hiring incompetent coaches because they don’t care for our country.

    What a lawless Country. Kai, I’m so sorry for our lovely Country.

    Oh well, you have done really well Mr. Klinsmann. You are indeed a German citizen. I’m so proud of you. Ire o. God bless Nigeria!!!

    • Like Sunday Oliseh, Klinsmann was equally fired as the coach of the U.S. A.
      National Team. Why celebrating a failed man in the profession they love so much and then related it to your own backward baizes. Omon9ja and Odegbami are the only Nigerians who do not agree with the good job our own National coach is doing for us.
      Omon9ja, your choice coach has a long time to wait before it gets to his turn. He may never get there. Believe me.

  • I keep wondering what made oliseh a failed coach???
    He left with his reputation intact…if u ever know what that means.
    Nigerians and sentimental thinking

    I stand to be corrected, in terms of professional qualification and performance, Oliseh is the best SE coach alive. He did pretty well with SE and fortuna sittard.

      @Larry, really?????????? Can u support your assertion with facts abeg….

      • GLORY 4 years ago

        @ Oakfield, pls lets not be too harsh or judgemental on Oliseh. There were loads of behind the scenes action that affected his SE performance. Sure he didn’t manage players attitude the best way but he was only trying to instill some discipline which is No. 1 key to success. But we all know nigerians attitude when faced with discipline. Strange how people think Oliseh hated Enyeama or Mikel. I refuse to accept that. He was only trying to eliminate big ego factor in the SE then. But unfortunately those two great players took it the wrong way. We must not underestimate Oliseh’s achievement with sittard. That was massive for an African coach in a white man’s land. Infact if we are honest with ourselves, with intent to gradually bring our SE back to indigenous coach, Sunday Oliseh working with Rohr through to next world Cup gaining more man management experience from Gernot Rohr should be the way.
