Dortmund look to Haaland to help reboot Bundesliga title bid

Having agreed to coach Hertha for the rest of the season, Klinsmann explained his abrupt decision by hinting at a power struggle with Hertha general manager Michael Preetz.

However, Hertha investor Lars Windhorst issued a damning rebuke of Klinsmann’s behaviour.

“You can do that in your youth, but not in professional business, where you have to fulfil agreements,” said the wealthy businessman.

Nouri, who has been sacked by Bremen and second-division Ingolstadt in recent seasons, has his work cut out rebuilding confidence as last Saturday’s 3-1 defeat at home to Mainz pushed Hertha towards the relegation places.
