Former Bayern Munich boss Jurgen Klinsmann has emerged as a leading candidate for the vacant post of England head-coach.
Klinsmann who is currently the coach of the US team, has been in talks with the English FA about replacing Roy Hodgson according to former Germany team-mate Oliver Bierhoff.
Hodson resigned from his post after England were kicked out of the EUROs by Iceland in the last 16 round.
Bierhoff, who is currently the assistant manager of German national team said that he belives that Klinsmann has the capability to lift the English team and lead them to glory.
Bierhoff said: “I think he is in discussion with England. He also gave the German national team a certain pride, atmosphere and organisation.
“He would be a good fit for England. We started in 2004 together and he’s not always, how can I say…nice to handle because he wants to change.
“But he brings motivation, he has the courage to make difficult decisions and perhaps you need something like this.”
Klinsmann spent his playing career in England, playing for Tottenham Hotspurs and the former Spurs striker is very interested in returning to England.
The 51-year old has suddenly become the leading candidate for the job, specially after impressive work with German national team and the US national team.
Klinsmann also lead the USA to the semi-finals of the Copa America, where they were beaten by Aregentina 4-0.
