But Bild claim Klinsmann has not been able to renew his paperwork since being appointed Hertha boss until the end of the season in November.

Klinsmann admitted: “When I boarded the plane to Berlin at the end of November, I didn’t think I would need my coaching licence and the proof of continuing education, because I didn’t know then that I would become the coach of Hertha.

“At Christmas, I simply forgot the documents. At the moment, there is no one in our house in California, because my wife is at my daughter’s place of study.

“But I’m in the process of obtaining all the necessary documents.”

Ex-Bayern boss Klinsmann received his coaching licence in 2000 – four years before he took on the Germany job.


It has to be renewed every three years to remain valid by providing documents to the football association in the country you are currently managing in.

DFB academy head Tobias Haupt confirmed: “We are currently examining this.

“We know that he has worked on continuing his education in recent years, for example in Mexico and Brazil, where less attention was paid to certificates.”
