Klinsmann who won just three out of his 10 games as boss, cited a lack of trust and support behind his decision to step down.
“As the head coach I need the trust of the acting persons,” the 55-year-old said.

“If they are not guaranteed, I can’t live up to my potential as a head coach and fulfill my responsibility.”
