Oliver Bierhoff comments on his teammate Jurgen Klinsmann

Former Germany star Oliver Bierhoff believes that his international teammate Jurgen Klinsmann is thought to be one of the contenders to replace Roy Hodgson.

Klinsmann has long been linked with the role as the England national team manager. He came to prominence in the managerial world by leading Germany to a semifinal finish in the 2006 World Cup. Since then, he has developed a reputation for being a great national team manager rather than a club manager. He has been linked with the England managerial job on a few times, but has lost out to other contenders on all occasions.

Jurgen Klinsmann on deficiency of Legends from America in Football

Jurgen Klinsmann says the reason why there’s been no Footballing legend coming out of America is that the Footballers in the country are not hungry enough to look to make it to the higher level even if they have the talent to do so.

They develop the sense of contentment pretty early in their careers which stops their further development.

The American Footballers of late have been interested in joining Major League Soccer despite having the opportunity to play in bigger leagues. While, it does not surprise Klinsmann a lot for the money that comes with the MLS contracts, it does disappoint him as he is of the view that those sorts of players who are good enough to be wanted in Europe are not tested at all in the American League.
