Bierhoff may quit Germany after 2014

Germany team manager Oliver Bierhoff is considering leaving his post after the 2014 World Cup in Brazil and could take up a job in the Bundesliga.

The 45-year-old joined the German FA (DFB) in 2004 as part of the Project 2006 initiative, becoming part of the set-up at the same time as coaches Jurgen Klinsmann and Joachim Low.

In his nine years in the post, the former Germany international has helped oversee a German move back towards the pinnacle of international football.

But in an interview with Die Welt, he said he was considering his future and could soon opt for a different kind of job.

"Over the next few weeks, I will think about what is attractive," Bierhoff said. "I value continuity, but the new also attracts me.

"The question is: Do I still have something to give? Do I need new incentives and need to leave the comfort zone? I am wavering, I have to admit."

Bierhoff said he still found his DFB work enjoyable but did not rule out joining a Bundesliga club for the first time in his managerial career.

"You can take quick decisions at a Bundesliga club - you have direct feedback, day-to-day events," he explained.

He also said he believed German clubs should welcome investment, whether corporate or by individuals, appearing to call into question the 50+1 ownership rule which means a club's members must retain a majority stake.

"Like everywhere in the economy, every club should have the opportunity to find investors," he said. "If somebody wants to give money - be it because of vanity or as a hobby - he should be allowed to do so."
