Jurgen Klinsmann is moving! But, not from the USMNT, at least not yet.
It hasn’t been the best week for U.S. men’s national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann. The U.S. was dominated 4-0 during this week’s matchup against Costa Rica at World Cup Qualifying. With the defeat, many have speculated Klinsmann may soon be out as coach. But, with a potential firing hanging over his head, the 52-year-old German manager received good news last week.
Klinsmann and wife Debbie sold their Newport Beach House last Friday, for $2 million. He bought the house in 2011 for $1.47 million. Here’s a description of the property, per the OC Register.
“The 3,000-square foot house is framed by a white picket fence. A Dutch door leads to a family room and formal living room, which share a fireplace. The house boasts an eat-in gourmet kitchen and a formal dining room.
Interior highlights include skylights, high ceilings and hardwood floors. The master retreat, which opens to a patio, has a large bathroom with a claw-foot bathtub, freestanding shower and dual sinks.”
Now, it’s easy to speculate Klinsmann sold the property because he saw his firing as inevitable, but when you think about it, that makes little sense. Klinsmann listed his house way back in March at a higher price. Unless he’s modern-day Nostradamus, his house wasn’t sold due to job concerns. The house even sold before the embarrassing defeat against Costa Rica.

So, sorry Klinsmann haters. Despite the house selling, his fate still hangs in the balance.
