Jurgen Klinsmann has finally made a return to management as he is appointed the new boss of Hertha Berlin.

Klinsmann has been out of the management game since leaving his post with the US men’s national team back in 2016.

Prior to that, he had a two-year spell in charge of Germany, and a rather disappointing eight-month spell leading Bayern Munich.

He joined Hertha in a supervisory capacity only three weeks ago but has now taken control of the day to day management of the first team.

He replaces Ante Covic, who ends a 20-year affiliation with the club.

While having been at the club as a player, then a manager of the second team, his tenure as first-team manager only lasted five months.

The team is 15th in the Bundesliga, with only three wins from 12 games.

The club confirmed the decision and Klinsmann’s appointment via social media.
