Legendary former USMNT manager linked with vacant Pachuca job

German World Cup-winning legend and former United States manager Jurgen Klinsmann has been linked with the vacant Pachuca job.

Los Tuzos are still searching for a replacement for Diego Alonso. Despite winning the title in 2016, the Uruguayan was sacked last week after failing to qualify for the Liguilla in either the Apertura or Clausura this season.

A FOX Sports report says Pachuca has already opened talks with the 53-year-old, though discussions over wages are a long way from reaching a conclusion.

Klinsmann was a world-class striker in the 1980s and 1990s. He represented a host of top European clubs, including Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Monaco, and Tottenham.

In 2004 he moved into management, coaching Germany, Bayern, and most famously, the USA.

His time in charge of the USMNT divided opinion, with his decision to leave Landon Donovan out of the 2014 World Cup squad proving to be particularly controversial.
