Hertha Berlin say Klinsmann acted like a child and has since apologised for his dramatic resignation – The Sun
HERTHA BERLIN have blasted Jurgen Klinsmann for his "unacceptable" resignation after only 10 weeks in charge.
Appointed in late November on a deal until the end of the season, the former striker will also not be returning to his role on the club's advisory board.
The former United States manager had claimed his departure was because he had lost trust in certain people at the Bundesliga outfit.
However, Hertha's primary investor Lars Windhorst has slammed Klinsmann for his childish behaviour that has affected the club landing new sponsors.
As quoted by ESPN, he said: "I regret that Jurgen Klinsmann left us abruptly. I talked to him on the phone, and he apologised for it. He's very sorry.
I regret that Jurgen Klinsmann left us abruptly. You can do that as a teenager, but not in the business world
"But, sadly, the way he left, he won't be able to return to the supervisory board. The manner of his departure was unacceptable.
"You can do that as a teenager, but not in the business world. His name resounded internationally. And we were really close to landing new sponsors."
With Klinsmann in charge, Die Alte Dame won three and drew three of his ten games, and currently sit 14 in the table, six points clear of relegation.
But earlier this week, the 55-year-old claimed that he had been forced to step away because of a power struggle with sporting executive Michael Preetz.
