Hertha Berlin manager Jurgen Klinsmann could be banned from taking charge of his team against Bayern Munich on Sunday - because he left his coaching qualifications in America.

The former Tottenham Hotspur striker, who is German but has lived in the US for nearly 20 years, was appointed as Hertha coach until the end of the season in November 2019. 

Yet German news ourganisation Bild reports that Klinsmann has not renewed his paperwork since his appointment and could face a ban from the dugout for the visit of the German champions.

Klinsmann confessed: 'When I boarded the plane to Berlin at the end of November, I didn't think I would need my coaching licence and the proof of continuing education, because I didn't know then that I would become the coach of Hertha.

'At Christmas, I simply forgot the documents. At the moment, there is no one in our house in California because my wife is at my daughter's place of study.'  

Coaching accreditation has to be renewed every three years by providing the necessary qualification documents to the football association of the country you are working in.

The former Germany and USA coach has not renewed his coaching licence since taking over 

German FA academy head Tobias Haupt said: 'We are currently examining this.

'We know that he has worked on continuing his education in recent years, for example in Mexico and Brazil where less attention was paid to certificates.'

Klinsmann has endured a positive spell in charge of Hertha Berlin since his appointment in late November.

The former Germany and USA coach lost his first game in charge - a 2-1 defeat at home to Borussia Dortmund - but has been unbeaten in the six games since then.

Klinsmann says that the necessary documents can be found in his house in California

The run, which includes wins away at Bayer Leverkusen and Eintracht Frankfurt, has seen Hertha rise from the relegation play-off places to 12th in the Bundesliga table.

They face Bayern Munich on Sunday who lie third in the table, four points adrift of league leaders RB Leipzig.
