No ‘Klinsmania’ at Liverpool as German joins Bayern

Despite the vain attempts by BBC Radio Five Live’s Mark Saggers to stir up the speculation linking Jurgen Klinsmann with a move to Anfield, it appears that the former Tottenham striker has instead agreed terms with Bayern Munich to become their next coach. The BBC report that the German has turned down Liverpool’s non-existent offer to replace Rafael Benitez and instead returns to his homeland instead.

Klinsmann will replace Ottmar Hitzfeld, who is due to step down from the post at the end of the current campaign.

The appointment marks Klinsmann’s first foray into club coaching after he guided host nation Germany to third place at the 2006 World Cup.

Who will be the next manager tenuously linked to the non-vacant position at Anfield?
