Klinsmann: Germany deserves to win Euro 2012

Jurgen Klinsmann is of the belief that the German team has become one of the most dominant forces in international football in recent years – and they definitely deserve to win Euro 2012..

Die Mannschaft were finalists at Euro 2008, and were able to reach the semi-finals in the 2006 and 2010 World cups.

However, the 47-year-old, who was in charge of the team in 2006, believes that the time has come for Joachim Low's side to make these failures history and pave their way to claiming the championship for themselves.

"I hope that Germany can dominate the tournament and win the title," Klinsmann told AS. "We now have a generation with many different strengths, and all of them are very interesting.

"It is a team that can make an impression on the tournament. This Germany team deserves to win a trophy like the Euros.

"We [as a people] usually have the conviction and inner strength to rise to the challenge. In football it is the same. It's better to believe that we can overcome any rival, as Spain, the champions of everything, do."

Low was Klinsmann’s assistant for the 2006 World Cup campaign. The former coach maintains a close relationship with the current big boss.

"Low is a true friend rather than Germany coach or my assistant in 2006. We talk football for hours. It's a privilege to talk about games with him."

"I tell him that his team plays almost perfectly. Also that he is risking a lot with his style and approach, and that he should be rewarded with a title. We also talk about things that can be improved."

On another note, Klinsmann also stated that he wasn’t surprised that the English team was eliminated, pointing out injuries and bad preparation as primary reasons for their exit.

"I had my doubts about the English before the Euros. They've had many injuries and the team had broken down. There was a new coach and little time to prepare."

"As it always is, they were unable to find the right path and move forward. They lacked a defined style."

Klinsmann is currently the coach of the USA national team and, although he refused to rule out a return to Europe, he is quite satisfied with his current posting.

"In football, you can never say a categorical 'no', but now I'm in a very interesting project, and I won't be coming back soon."
