Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich has named ex-player and top scorer in German history, Miroslav Klose, technical assistant for next season.
Klose, 41, has been a youth coach for Bayern Munich for the past two years after retiring as a player in 2016.
He spent four seasons as a player for the five European champion teams in 2007, winning league and cup awards.
"This is the next step in my coaching career," said Klose.
Bayern coach Hansi Flick, who signed a contract extension last month, was Germany's assistant coach when a team with Klose won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.
"We have known each other very well since our time on the national team and we trust each other professionally and personally," said Klose.
Also talking about the appointment of Klose, former German president and current Bayern president Rummenigge said: “We are very happy that Miro has decided to take this step from FC Bayern Campus to the first team. I am convinced that our attackers, in particular, will benefit from him being there as a coach. Miro was also Hansi Flick's favorite candidate. "
Klose scored 71 goals in 137 games for Germany between 2001 and 2014.
He also played for Kaiserslautern, Werder Bremen and Lazio, from Italy.
