Germany's Jürgen Klinsmann new South Korea coach

Former Germany and United States coach Jürgen Klinsmann has been appointed as South Korea’s new coach, the South Korean Football Federation announced on Monday.

The former Mannschaft striker (108 caps, 47 goals), with whom he won the World Cup in 1990, will arrive in Seoul next week and take his place on the bench for the friendly match against Colombia on March 24, the federal body said in a statement.

Aged 58, Klinsmann succeeds the Portuguese Paulo Bento, who led South Korea to the round of 16 of the last World Cup in Qatar (defeat against Brazil).

The former striker for Inter Milan, Bayern Munich and AS Monaco will be required to qualify for the 2026 World Cup in North America, the first to 48 nations.
