World Cup legend Miroslav Klose was announced to take over as Bayern Munich’s assistant manager this Thursday! Previously, Klose was coaching the Bavarian under-17 team. Thus, from July 1, he will be officially appointed as Bayern’s assistant coach!
The announcement was made by the Bavarian team’s social networks earlier this Thursday, where they posted the following: “Miroslav Klose becomes assistant coach to Hans Flick”.
With that said, the Legendary World Cup All-time top scorer spoke to Bayern Munich’s official website:
“It feels really good, I’m excited about this challenge. Hans Flick and I have known each other very well since our time in the German national team and we trust each other both professionally and personally. For me, this was the step to be taken in my career as a coach. In this way, I hope that my experience can add a lot to Bayern to achieve its sporting goals.”
Bayern’s chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge also gave his words on Bayern’s “new” man:
“We are very happy that Miro agreed to take this step from the Under team to the professionals. He was Germany’s most successful German striker for the past 15 or 20 years. I am sure that mainly our strikers will benefit from him in charge.”
Indeed they will. If Robert Lewandowski is already a goal-machine without Klose advising him, I’m pretty sure the Poleman can become even better.
Namely, the Bundesliga is due to return on May 16. The Munich team will return to the field to face Union Berlin. Bayern is the current leader of the competition, with 55 points after 25 matchdays played.
I’m not backing Bayern Munich to be crowned Bundesliga Champions once again this season. But Klose deserves all our attention and every single mention not only for his history on the pitch but also for what he represents to Germany.
