As a TV expert at the BBC, Jürgen Klinsmann delivered a solid racism scandal.

Now he has responded to the severe criticism.

Update from November 29, 1:19 p.m .:

After the excitement about his statements about Iran’s playing style, Jürgen Klinsmann feels misunderstood.

“My comments on the Wales vs Iran game were purely football related.

Unfortunately, they were taken out of the footballing context," wrote the former national soccer coach on Twitter on Monday.

“I have many Iranian friends and have always been full of compliments about their countrymen, culture and history.

I wish them all the best for the tournament.”

The 1990 world champion had criticized Iran's allegedly unclean style of play in the 2-0 win against Wales on the BBC.

“It's part of their culture and how they play, they've edited the referee perfectly.

The bench kept jumping up and complaining to the linesman and fourth official.

They're in your head all the time," said Klinsmann.

"It's their culture.

They make you lose focus.”

Klinsmann, who is also part of the technical study group of the world association FIFA at the World Cup in Qatar, was sharply criticized on social media and by the Iranian coach Carlos Queiroz.

Jürgen Klinsmann heavily criticized for statements

First report from November 27, 8:31 a.m.:

Doha – For the German national soccer team it’s all about this World Cup 2022 on Sunday against Spain (all TV information about the game). A former national coach is also causing a scandal, like tz .de reports: Jürgen Klinsmann.

Jürgen Klinsmann

Born: July 30, 1964 (Age: 58 years old), Goeppingen

Family: Debbie Chin, Jonathan Klinsmann, Laila Klinsmann

Positions as a coach: DFB, FC Bayern Munich, USA, Hertha BSC

Klinsmann causes a World Cup scandal with racism statements

The architect of the German summer fairy tale of 2006 is now working as a TV expert, and the 58-year-old made a huge mistake on Friday.

What happened?

Iran had beaten Wales 2-0 in the second group game of this World Cup (schedule for the 2022 World Cup), “Klinsi” analyzed the game for the British TV station BBC.

He accused Iran of playing a dirty game and repeatedly said it was "part of their culture".

He had already been heavily criticized for this on social media.

Jürgen Klinsmann is heavily criticized for racism statements

For example, on Twitter it said: "He should be excluded as an expert for the rest of the tournament.

His baseless and racist twaddle towards Iran was a disgrace and the BBC should be ashamed to let him talk like that on live TV without interfering.”

British journalist Mehdi Hasan said: “What irony.

Klinsmann, who was often criticized as a player for his swallows, makes these sweeping and rather racist-sounding claims.

It's sad that nobody else in this round asked him about it." He wrote "#everydayracism" - "everyday racism".

Iran coach Carlos Queiroz fumes about Jurgen Klinsmann

A day after Klinsmann's statements, Iran's national coach Carlos Queiroz also spoke up via Instagram and criticized the choice of words by the former top striker, who had said that the coach would fit in well with the team.

"Dear Juergen;

you called me carlos

So I think it's appropriate to call you Juergen.

Right?

Even if you don't know me personally, you question my character with a typical prejudice of superiority.”

That's what the DFB stars from the summer fairy tale of 2006 are doing today

And further: "No matter how much I can respect what you did on the field, these statements about Iranian culture, the Iranian national team and my players are a disgrace to football."

The Portuguese coach then even invited Klinsmann to visit him and the team and exchange ideas about Iranian culture.

Before that, the former DFB coach should resign from the FIFA technical study group for the World Cup.

It's by no means the only scandal at this much-discussed World Cup: for example, a TV reporter was asked to choose a punishment for a pickpocket, and FIFA President Gianni Infantino also shocked with a press conference.
