BREAKING: Germany Legend Miroslav Klose Retires From Football

BREAKING: Germany Legend Miroslav Klose Retires From Football

Germany legend Miroslav Klose has announced his retirement from football today. The 38-year old was one of the most decorated strikers in world football and is the top goalscorer in World Cup history, edging out Ronaldo with an immense 16 goals across four tournaments.

He is also the all-time top goalscorer for Germany having scored an exceptional 71 goals in 137 games. By the time he retired after the 2014 World Cup win, Germany never lost a game in which Klose scored.

At club level, Klose played for FC 08 Homburg, Kaiserslautern, Werder Bremen, Bayern Munich and most recently Lazio. He won two Bundesliga titles with Bayern as well as a Coppa Italia but it was the national team stage where Klose made his mark - winning the World Cup in 2014 in Brazil.

He will take up a coaching role in the Germany national team set-up, working towards his coaching badges under manager Joachim Löw.
