There have been several rumours over the last few weeks that US national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann could take over the Switzerland role after the end of the World Cup. The former Germany manager has been in charge of the US national team for the last few years. He has helped the team qualify for the World Cup 2014 and they are expected to do well this time around. Due to the stellar work that he has done with the US team, he continues to be linked with several national and club management roles.
Switzerland are the latest to be linked with Klinsmann. They will be without the manager after the World Cup 2014 since Ottmar Hitzfeld – their current manager – has revealed that he will step down from his role at the end of the World Cup. Klinsmann has not refuse to rule out of the rumours linking him with the job. Speaking to German tabloid Bild, he has confirmed that there have been several offers on the table for his services, but he is yet to decide on his future. He has confirmed that there have been several clubs interested in bringing the former Tottenham striker to club football.
“I have been receiving several enquiries in recent months. Those enquiries were from Europe-based clubs and from several Football Associations as well. And all of them were about the time after the 2014 FIFA World Cup,” said Klinsmann, whose contract with the US national team runs out of the World Cup. Even though his work has been praised around the world, many of the Americans are not happy with his performance. Klinsmann has introduced a number of Germans into the national team squad by taking advantage of FIFA’s rules.
It is expected that he will announce his decision in the next few weeks.
