Kahn believes Klinsmann can bring Bayern to Europen success

Former Bayern Munich goalkeeper Oliver Kahn is convinced that new Bayern coach Jurgen Klinsmann can help the club make a ‘big impression’ at next season’s Champions League.

With Klinsmann at the helm, the recently-retired custodian believes the Bavarian giants can make a real impact in Europe and overcome the disappointment of losing to Zenit St Petersburg in the UEFA Cup semi-finals last season.

‘I trust Jurgen not only with the two title defences of the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal but also to a make a big impression in the Champions League,’ Kahn told Munich-based newspaper Tz. ‘I still know him from the year we had together at Bayern in 1995/96. He is very bright and will prepare Bayern very well. Certainly Klinsmann will be under pressure at Bayern, but that always exists there. It is only about titles, titles, titles. I think it is good that with Klinsmann there is someone with new ideas and other methods.’

Besides playing together with Klinsmann at Bayern Munich during the 95/96 season, Kahn was also under Klinsmann charge during his 2-year reign as the German national team coach. However, their time together in the national team was marked by the fierce rivalry between Kahn and Lehmann, with Klinsmann deciding to pick Lehmann as his number 1 in the end.

However, with all this in the past, Kahn seems to be happy to lend his support to the new coach of the club which he has spent a large part of his career at.
