Germany's national soccer team is still looking for a new coach and former player Jürgen Klinsmann seems ready to take on the job. DW-WORLD readers seem happy about this.
Cheering during his active days
Of course Klinsmann has no coaching experience, but he also has a fresh and honest view on the state of German soccer. I believe that he'd be more flexible and pragmatic that Völler; however, I have to admit that I feel a little reserved about the hiring of a man who has no experience to coach a team who desperately needs to perform in 2006. Nevertheless, it could be that Klinsmann is just the man to be honest with the team about their abilities and potential, and to inject some much-needed confidence into their play. He should be involved with the team in some capacity. --
Klinsmann is one of my all time favorite player and I immensely respect his personal and professional accomlishments. However, I just can`t understand what happened to all those very experienced soccer coaches ad managers in Germany? I know of many very experiences coaches and ex-coaches who could suit the task of leading the team to the 2006 World Cup. Either these coaches are not interested or the DFB don`t want them!? Anyway, if Klinsmann accept to become the next coach, aided by great players such as Bierhof, I will support him to the 2006 World Cup in Germany. -- Atilla A Iftikhar
