BERLIN: Germany great Jurgen Klinsmann’s Californian-born son Jonathan is “too American” and must work harder to make an impact in the Bundesliga, the Hertha Berlin goalkeeper’s coach said on Wednesday.

The 20-year-old Klinsmann, whose father won the 1990 World Cup as a striker and coached Germany at the 2006 tournament, joined Hertha last July.Raised in the United States, the club’s third choice keeper suggested at a press conference on Tuesday that his laid back approach helped him to be “less nervous” on the pitch.But Hertha’s goalkeeping coach Zsolt Petry took an alternative view.

“These last two or three months haven’t been good. We aren’t happy with his progress, he’s still a little too American,” Petry told the domestic media.“He has still not fully taken on board the German virtues like concentrating on hard work. In professional football, if you don’t have that, you are lost.”
