“This is the next step in my career as a coach,” Klose said.

Bayern head coach Hansi Flick, who signed a contract extension last month, was Germany assistant coach when a side featuring Klose won the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“We have known each other very well since our time in the national team and we trust each other both professionally and personally,” Klose said.

Also speaking on Klose’s appointment former German international and current Bayern chairman  Rummenigge said: “We are very happy that Miro has decided to take this step from the FC Bayern Campus to the first team. I am convinced that our strikers in particular will benefit from him being there as a coach. Miro was also Hansi Flick’s preferred candidate.”

Klose scored 71 goals in 137 games for Germany between 2001 and 2014.

He also played for Kaiserslautern, Werder Bremen and Italian side Lazio.

  • NFF, this a very apt example of how it works, you can see, he coached the u17 for 2 seasons, before they consider him as an assistant coach. You can see his achievements as a player, but they didn’t consider that because coaching and footballing are two different things. Amaju pinnick.. Learn

    Bayern Munich’s current U17 team coach Miroslav Klose will take the next step in his coaching career in the coming weeks.

    According to SPORT1, the all-time World Cup top goalscorer has already taken the first step in the coaching process, and thus began his journey to attain his UEFA Pro license, the highest license that a coach can attain in Europe. In Germany, you must have a UEFA Pro license if you want to coach in the first to third divisions of the Bundesliga (the Premier League, on the other hand, only requires a Pro license for the first division).

    Now, in order to get a UEFA Pro license in Germany, coaching applicants to go through an incredibly vigorous program at the Hennes-Weisweiler academy for ten months for them to achieve the prestigious title of “Fußball-Lehrer.” That’s assuming you pass the aforementioned first step, which is a big challenge of its own. It involves an interview, a couple of written exams, and a practical exam, all in the space of three days. Klose, thankfully, passed it, along with Bayern U19 coach Danny Schwarz.

    Klose will start his training in June and is set to take his final exam in April 2021. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Weltmeister and his fellow students may have to start their training online. Because of the unprecedented nature of the crisis, the DFB is currently devising a new plan for this year’s wave of applicants.

    Of course, this new step in Klose’s career has been spotted by Bild, and they have put out a speculative report that Klose might join Hansi Flick in the first team as his assistant coach.

    Now of course, this is a big maybe, and whether this is true remains to be seen. Considering the fact that Klose turned down the U19 gig last summer, it’s obvious that he will not take the next step unless he is certain of it. All things considered, it seems rather unlikely that he would jump up to the first team.

    Klose has been very successful while coaching the U17s, reaching the final playoffs of the B-Junioren Bundesliga last season, and currently in third in the league’s southwest division, five points off leaders Mainz.

    Here’s hoping that Miro becomes as successful, if not more, as a coach as he was as a player

    Above is how sensible people do things. Miroslav Klose is Germany’s all time top score with 71 goals in over 130caps….but in his words..

    “…Anyone who knows me knows that I always want to achieve the best possible education in my life,” said Klose. “That’s why I’m really looking forward to the soccer teacher training course and to being able to take the next important step in my coaching training……Just because you were a professional doesn’t make you a professional trainer. It’s like a new job, a completely different perspective. I would never say that I am the superstar who can do everything….”

    Those are the words of An Ex World Cup and Leagues winner. But some people claim 100caps is enough to coach a national team and even lead them to the World cup in 2022.

    A World champion who retired from football just 4 years ago is already close to earning his Uefa PRO LICENSE and by then would have had 4 years coaching experience. But people who retired from football 6 years ago are flaunting 100caps all over the place…no training, no coaching experience, no badges…6 WHOLE YEARS after retirement from football…ladies and gentlemen, I introduce to you the man appointed by Pinnick to be the Asst Manager of the National team of Nigeria and the man being proposed by Chief Segun Odegbami to lead the SE to Qatar 2022 (in 2 years time).

      Lol. @Drey and other well meaning SE fans, instead of us calling out NFF, why don’t we focus our energy on Yobo who accepted the nonesense of a ruse he thinks is a job? If we are succesful, it might push him to resign and go acquire relevant qualifications and experiece at club level before coming back in the near future. Who knows, Yobo may be the one to lead us to a world  cup trophy but the NFF could ruin him before he even gets the dream. Just my thought. We are Nigerians, we can’t just fold our hands and watch SE go down this road again.
