Jurgen Klinsmann, Hertha Berlin enjoy warm weather training ahead of Florida Cup

DAVENPORT — Ahead of the opening exhibition match for the Florida Cup, coach Jurgen Klinsmann and his Hertha Berlin team were enjoying a simple pleasure on Sunday — an escape from the German winter during a sunny morning practice at ChampionsGate.

Central Florida was a top destination for Klinsmann when he was the coach of the United States men’s national team. Now, it offers his Bundesliga club the best winter conditions to prepare during the league’s midseason break as they prepare for a friendly match against Eintracht Frankfurt at Al Lang Stadium in St. Petersburg on Thursday.

“I would like to use this to build the base for the second part of our season,” Klinsmann said.
