‘Especially in a relegation battle, unity, team spirit and focus on the basics are the most important elements.
‘If they are not guaranteed, I can’t live up to my potential as a head coach and fulfill my responsibility.’
Klinsmann leaves with the Berlin outfit in a treacherous position in Bundesliga – they currently sit just six points behind the relegation zone in 14th place with just 13 matches remaining.
