Klinsmann not ruling out coaching German team

FRANKFURT, Germany -- Juergen Klinsmann is not ruling out a return to Germany as coach of the national team, but it won't be any time soon.

Klinsmann coached Germany for two years and stepped down in July after leading the host nation to a third-place finish at the World Cup. Last week, he turned down an offer to become the U.S. coach.

In an interview with the weekly Die Zeit, Klinsmann said the decision to resign was only made after Germany beat Portugal in the third-place match and that it was solely for family reasons.

"As a family, we didn't want to live the life of the past two years," Klinsmann told Die Zeit.

Klinsmann lives in California and has not made a public appearance in Germany since the World Cup.

One should "never say never," Klinsmann told the weekly when asked if he could see himself returning to Germany and working as coach again, even of the national team.

But "at the moment" it was out of the question.
