Klinsmann Picks Jens Lehmann

Well, I’m impressed.
Klinsmann made a gusty move, taking on the dinosaurs in the Bundesliga and picking Lehmann.
According to Reuters:
One of Klinsmann’s first acts as coach after taking over in 2004 was to strip Kahn of the captaincy and inform the Bayern keeper he faced a battle with Lehmann for the first choice position. The coach has since alternated the two players, saying he would make a final decision at the start of May.
“To tell Oliver Kahn today that he was not going to be the number one was the toughest and hardest decision in my somewhat fresh career as a coach,” Klinsmann said.
