Klinsmann mulling coaching return

Shares

BERLIN, January 24- Former Germany and Bayern Munich coach Jurgen Klinsmann said on Monday he would not rule out a return to the touchline in the Bundesliga if the right offer materialised.

Klinsmann had an unsuccessful spell with Bayern between 2008 and 2009 but told German newspaper Heilbronner Stimme that "if the right offer came along which is right for me on a human level and fits in with the way I think then that could indeed be a super challenge."

He added: "There have been a few offers but I consider that when they are not 100 percent right then I don’t need to go with them."

Klinsmann, who made his name as a striker with Stuttgart, Inter Milan and Tottenham Hotspur and is now an adviser to Canadian club Toronto, has recently been linked in the media with Hoffenheim, who in January sacked Ralf Rangnick.

"You can never rule anything out in football but for the moment we (his family) are really happy in California," where the 46-year-old returned after his unhappy spell at Bayern ended in dismissal.

Prior to that he led Germany to third place at the 2006 World Cup on home soil before standing down and handing on to assistant Joachim Loew.
