Jürgen Klinsmann has admitted errors regarding his much criticized departure from Hertha BSC as a coach. "I am very sorry how my departure from Hertha BSC came about after we had put six points between us and the relegation place," said the 55-year-old in an interview with dpa.

Klinsmann first joined the capital city club as a trusted investor Lars Windhorst in the summer and took over in November as a trainer for the hapless Ante Covic. His resignation followed in February, which Klinsmann announced on his own and without prior consultation via Facebook.

Later, a diary-like document from Klinsmann came to the public via the Bild newspaper, in which the 1990 world champion listed grievances at Hertha. On the one hand, he criticized the behavior of manager Michael Preetz in great detail and questioned his professionalism. On the other hand, he gave ratings for individual players, which should outline whether players still added value on the transfer market or for the club.

Klinsmann was "still a mystery today how this got to the media. But that is the past. "
