Germany Watch: Miroslav Klose could be candidate for U-21 squad

Miroslav Klose is said to prefer a coaching career in the club game, but the U-21 position could be appealing.

With the news that Stefan Kuntz was headed to take over the Turkish national team, the DFB is putting together a list of candidates to succeed the 58-year-old.

Former Bayern Munich assistant coach Miroslav Klose could be one of the prime contenders for the job according to a report from kicker (as captured Twitter account @iMiaSanMia) — if he would be willing to take a position with the DFB.

It is widely believed that Klose would prefer to coach with a club, but this could be a difficult time of the season to land a position with a stable organization. For Klose, a bout with blood clots in his legs stifled any quick action after announcing he would leave Bayern Munich last season.

Now, Klose could be in a position to have to gamble on himself. If he is offered the U-21 position, he could go with the sure thing and help mold Germany’s next generation — or he could venture into the club game, not knowing when a good fit for his career might occur.

Decisions...decisions.
