Jurgen Klinsmann may stay on as Germany coach – if the hosts enjoy a successful World Cup campaign.
His contract ends after the tournament and, despite being criticised for living in the United States during his tenure, he says enjoyed the the job.
“I could very well imagine continuing as coach,” said the 41-year-old, who said he would consult his family first.
“A coach is measured by his team’s success. That could lead me to go on. It is all down to how Germany perform.”
Klinsmann replaced former international team-mate Rudi Voeller in charge of the team after a disappointing Euro 2004, where Germany were knocked out at the group stage.
