Two players who graced the football fields of England were today celebrating their appointment to high profile international management positions.

First up was former Spurs Striker Jurgen Klinsmann who was named the new manager of the USA National team.

Klinsmann, who played for Bayern Munich and Inter Milan in an illustrious career, replaces Bob Bradley who was sacked this week following almost five years in charge.

The 46 year old, who won the World cup with Germany in 1990, described his appointment as a “honour” and will take charge for the first time against Mexico on August 10th.

Meanwhile Alejandro Sabella, who played for Sheffield United and Leeds in the 70’s and 80’s has replaced Sergio Batista as the new Argentina coach.

The 56 year old who won the Copa Libertadores as coach of Estudiantes two years ago had been set to take charge of Al-Jazira in the United Arab Emirates before Batista’s exit last week.

Argentina’s quarter-final defeat by Uruguay when hosting the Copa America this month cost Batista his job.
