Miroslav Klose is currently playing his trade as a coach and building his portfolio. He started out as a coach for Germany’s coaching staff, then a stint at Bayern Munich as a U-17 coach and as first team assistant manager to Hansi Flick, and then at SC Altach. He was sacked four days before Julian Nagelsmann at Bayern.

Now, the 45-year-old is linked to a job at his old club FC Kaiserslautern.

This was reported by Sky Sports’ Florian Plettenberg (@Plettigoal), who also stated that other clubs are interested in hiring the 2014 World Cup Winner. Klose burst onto the Bundesliga scene in 1999 with Kaiserslautern at the age of 21 and he has not looked back since.

He is the current World Cup top goalscorer with 16 goals, which he did in front of Brazil and R9 Ronaldo (who was commentating when he got surpassed on the night) as Germany romped to a 7-1 thrashing. Klose was also known for his fair play on the pitch; he was quoted as saying, “there are many youngsters who watch football on TV, and we are role models for them”.

If Miro does get the job, BFW wishes you well!
