Jurgen Klinsmann Settled at $3.35M by US Soccer after Being Fired during the Contract Period

Klinsmann, who was the former head coach of the U. S national team gets paid a huge amount after being fired due to the disappointing results of the team and also the team’s failure to get through to the 2018 World Cup Russia.

Jurgen Klinsmann was appointed a head coach in 2011 for the national men’s team and then later in 2013, the contract was extended to five more years to December 2018. Apparently, U.S national team failed to qualify the World Cup 2018 which was held in Russia which created a huge loss for the USA. The disappointing results of the team lead to Klinsmann being fired from the post of head coach in 2016. Even though the net amount of loss is tremendous, the settlement amounts for the fired coaches have been let out by USSF and the reports show that Klinsmann received $3.354 M settlement.

Not only him, Andreas Herzog, who was Klinsmann’s assistant also received an amount of $355, 537 after he was removed from his post in the corresponding year. Klinsmann was replaced by Bruce Arena who had his contract through the Russian World Cup with a pay amount of $899,348 but was settled for $300,000 following his resignation after he had failed to produce any development in the qualifying process.

This sums up most the post changes and reconstruction of coaches and managers regarding the slow start and failure of U. S team to achieve huge results during the World Cup duration. A spokesman for USSF stated that all the settlements to the former coaches including Klinsmann had cleared and the federation does not owe any more money to the ex-coaches. The German footballer who holds a position in the FIFA rankings is currently abstaining from coaching.
