After protocol scandal: Klinsmann no longer RTL expert

Jürgen Klinsmann will not be returning to RTL as a TV expert after his noisy retirement as coach of the Bundesliga football team Hertha BSC. This was announced by the channel on Friday.

According to RTL, the decision was made at Klinsmann’s own request. Klinsmann had been presented in February 2019 as the successor of Jens Lehmann and analyzed the games of the German national team for RTL.

According to the broadcaster, RTL was also planning Klinsmann for its upcoming broadcasts, but a contract did not yet exist.
