The surprising resignation of Jurgen Klinsmann has not only caught the leaders of Hertha BSC cold. Also “Sky” expert Dietmar Hamann was shocked by the decision of the former national coach to throw the pucks in Berlin.
“He has done the club harm by making them stand 13-game days before the season ends without a coach. It’s hard to put into words,”Hamann said on Saturday before the Berlin game against SC Paderborn. It is disrespectful to those responsible, to the investor, to the sports director Michael Preetz, to the fans,”Hamann sharply criticised the retired Klinsmann.
“He goes there and says:’We are making a big city club out of Hertha BSC’, and after six to eight weeks he is suddenly gone again. This cannot be overcome by disrespect and ignorance,”the TV expert said, who, among other things, worked with Klinsmann at the WM 1998 in France for the DFB t e am.
Berlin’s sports director Michael Preetz also renewed his criticism of Klinsmann on Saturday and explained: “The door to Hertha BSC is immediately closed.” Although Preetz did not rule out a reconciliation, “but if you run away, is not possible”.
