US Soccer Coach Jurgen Klinsmann Lists $2.4M Newport Beach Home
U.S. Soccer Coach Jurgen Klinsmann's Newport Beach, CA, home created a buzz amongst soccer fan homebuyers. The German soccer star's storybook Craftsman-style home is now up for sale for $2,399,000.
As the 1990 World Cup champ, Klinsmann headed the men's U.S. soccer league since 2011 and he led the home country to the 2006 World Cup semifinals.
According to Realtor, while the 51-year-old's style of leadership in the Men's National Team hac led to some controversy, homebuyers agree that his house has a lot to offer. The charming 3,000-square-foot, home is ready for a new owner. It boasts a white picket fence, an ornate Dutch door, and picture perfect landscaping in this exclusive area in Orange County.
The bright remodeled house comes with four bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms. The light and airy living and open dining rooms share a stylish fireplace, and French doorways lead to a cozy outdoor patio and a rustic grassy dog run. The country kitchen comes with modern appliances and a quaint breakfast nook.
Klinsmann moved to the area to be closer to his wife's family, and he's been seen around town and at local cafes. He has also picked up his two kids from school over the years. On the field, he's busy trying to assemble the 2018 World Cup U.S. squad.
Meanwhile, the coach had chosen his roster for the upcoming qualifiers against Guatemala. According to Fox Sports, he had picked full-strength players at his disposal. However, a couple of questions came into play in the pair of crucial matches that actually pushed the American team closer to Russia.
Fabian Johnson and Jozy Altidore are on the team, but both have acquired injuries in their previous ganes. Altidore has yet to play this season because of a hamstring issue, while Johnson suffered groin pain last Friday that kept him out of the match.
