Hertha Berlin boss Jurgen Klinsmann has said that there is “no problem” with his training licence, after reports claimed it was no longer legitimate.
German paper Bild claimed the ex-Germany and U.S.A. manager, 55, may not have actually been enabled on the touchline for Sunday’s match against Bayern Munich.
Klinsmann says the licence is at his Californian house and paperwork was sent out to the German Football Association.
The German FA (DFB) states the documents are being inspected.
In a Facebook chat with fans on Wednesday, the ex-Spurs striker said: “That [licence] is someplace at home in California, in some drawer someplace. We will discover it.
” I have actually now sent by mail all the important things that the German FA (DFB) needs. So things are in order. No issue.”
Klinsmann was selected Hertha coach at the end of November and the group sit 12 th in the Bundesliga.
Tobias Haupt, head of the DFB Academy, the unit charged with creating and arranging coach education, stated: “Klinsmann is a true pedigreed coach, German football owes him a lot, and he is among the national group honorary captains.
” That said, of course certain rules also apply to him. That is now being examined.”
Haupt included: “We know that over the last few years he has actively sought to widen his coaching horizon by participating in more training courses, for example in Mexico and Brazil, where perhaps less attention was paid to releasing badges or certificates.
” Together with the DFL [the German football league] and Jurgen himself, we will go over particular procedures enabling him to close whatever gaps will be determined, for instance by enrolling in the elite coach refresher course in Mainz in February.”
