He didn’t feel like playing football again when his playing career ended.
David said in an interview that he no longer wanted to play football after the end of his playing career. He realized this when he got an assistant position at SV Darmstadt immediately after the season. He wanted to try new things and learn new things. When he seriously thought about what he wanted, an idea came to him: becoming a teacher, which he saw as a steady job with lots of vacations and free time.
So with that in mind, he went to school and became a sports and biology instructor. He enjoyed his job because no one told him what he should or should not do in professional football. He was out of football for two to three years and kept a safe distance. But eventually his enthusiasm for football returned to him. In addition to his diploma, he became a certified coach at the end of 2007. He considered returning to coaching as he already had a coaching certificate.
He met his future bride in Mainz
David and his wife have been married for a long time. He first met his future wife in Mainz. The couple had two lovely daughters, Lea and Lynn, as a result of their marriage. During his ups and downs, his wife and two children have been there for him. In 2019, the couple celebrated their silver wedding anniversary.

Lea, his eldest daughter, is a journalist and sports presenter. She works as a sports presenter for SWR, a public regional broadcaster. She has just been hired as a presenter for ‘Sportschau’. She is now involved with her boyfriend, Yannick. They now live in Stuttgart.
He and Klopp are best buddies.
David and Jurgen Klopp have been friends for a long time. Even though he is head coach of the Liverpool top team, Klopp remains David’s old buddy. His relationship with him remains unchanged. Klopp has played an important and influential role in both his career and personal life. He says he has known Klopp longer than his wife. They met in Mainz, where David took his place in the squad and Klopp changed his role from striker to defender. David attributes all of his football expertise to Klopp. Lynn, Klopp’s second daughter, is also named after him.
David had a spectacular playing career. He had the best success during his four-year stint with Mainz when he scored 19 goals. He was a member of the United States national team for eight years. He has coached Borussia Dortmund II, Huddersfield Town and Schalke 04 before taking over at Young Boys.
