Former Bayern Munich, Germany and USA boss Jurgen Klinsmann has stepped down from his role as Hertha Berlin's head coach, and will now return to his position on the club's supervisory board, the Bundesliga has confirmed.

Having only been appointed to the role in November last year following the sacking of Ante Covic, the 55-year-old's decision to resign after just 76 days in charge has come as a surprise to many.

"After long consideration, I've come to the decision to give up my position as head coach and return to my original long-term role on the supervisory board," Klinsmann announced.

"In November, we agreed to the club's wish to help out in a difficult time with a highly competent team.

"We were progressing really well in a relatively short period of time and have managed to put six points between us and the play-off spot, despite difficult games, thanks to the support of many people. I'm convinced Hertha will achieve its goal of remaining in the Bundesliga."
