Former Germany midfielder Mehmet Scholl was appointed temporary coach of Bayern Munich’s reserve team on Monday as his predecessor Hermann Gerland was promoted following Jurgen Klinsmann’s sacking.

Ex-Germany boss Klinsmann was sacked as head coach on Monday after just ten months in charge and has been temporarily replaced by Jupp Heynckes, with Gerland to act as his assistant for the last five games of the season.

Scholl, 38, has been promoted from Bayern’s youth team set-up and will be in charge of the reserves until the end of the season.

“Mehmet was a big player for Bayern and he has gained a lot of experience with the youth team, so we know we can rely on him,” said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

Scholl spent his entire career as a player at Bayern and hung up his boots in 2007 after making 334 Bundesliga appearances and winning eight league titles and the 2001 Champions League title with the Bavarian giants.

He won 36 caps for Germany and was part of the squad that won the European Championship in 1996.
