German Coach Picks his Deputy

New German soccer team coach Jürgen Klinsmann has picked a former Bundesliga coach as his co-trainer. Former Vfb Stuttgart player and coach Joachim Loew agreed to help Klinsmann, a former national team player who has no coaching experience, lead the team in the 2006 World Cup in Germany. Germany's Soccer Federation (DFB) initially wanted Holger Osieck, Franz Beckenbauer's deputy during Germany's victorious 1990 World Cup. But Klinsmann and Osieck were unable to reach a deal on how to coach the team during meetings earlier this week. Assisting Klinsmann will be his former striking partner Oliver Bierhoff, who will be responsible for sponsorship deals and the media in his capacity as team manager. Klinsmann said at press conference Thursday that he planned to win the 2006 World Cup.
