Klinsmann settles for Bayern Munich job

Devastated by his inability to land a coaching job in the US, Juergen Klinsmann settled for the top spot with little known German side Bayern Munich. Klinsmann had desperately wanted to take control of either the US men's national team or the LA Galaxy, but he failed to impress either of them, forcing him to turn tail and run back to Germany.

All right, that was a lot of fun to write. Anyway, Klinsmann will take over Bayern starting next season, which should give him just about enough time to figure out how to convince Oliver Kahn to stay so he can bench him (I hear Jens Lehmann is available).

If there is a downside to all this it's that his name can no longer be thrown around whenever a top post becomes available anywhere in the world.

Sorry to correct you, but Kahn will retire at the end of this season, so he does not have to figure that out.

Yes, he said that the only case he would stay in the game if Rensig (second goalkeeper) had a very serious injury.

And Lehman stays in Arsenal because of family reasons. (Behind future England #1 GK Almunia)

P.S.: Your blog is very nice, it is good to read from MLS in Europe

p.s.2:Offtopic: Do you know one Octavio Zambrano? he is coming to the last team in Hungarian Division I as a coach and everyone says he is a very good one with MLS experience.

I don't think that Klinsman is good solution for Bayern. They need much experienced coach to work with stars in Bayern's squad. Klinsman worket with young players in German national selection and it was something completely different
