No one can ever say that Kaiserlautern's new trainer is a no name. Michael Henke's list of accomplishments reads like a What's-What of international soccer: World club champ: twice. Champions League winner: twice. German Champ: six times. German Cup winner: three times. Super Cup winner: three times.
The catch is Henke did all that as Ottmar Hitzfeld's assistant coach. What he can do on his own with just 15 million euros remains to be seen. Two newcomers, Ervin Skela and Axel Bellinghausen, may have to be enough to brighten the spirits of disappointed fans. And as if it wasn't hard enough for Henke to be coming from Bayern Munich, the team everyone loves to hate, he was also expected to be the season's first fired trainer -- even before the season has started! Henke's made it through the beginning of the season, but only time will tell if his luck can last.
