( dpa ) - Juergen Klinsmann cast an eye over his future team Saturday when Bayern Munich handed China's Olympic team a 7-2 drubbing in a friendly game in Munich.
The 43-year-old, who it was announced Friday will take over on July 1 from Ottmar Hitzfeld on a two-year contract until 2010, says he will surround himself with a team of experts at Germany's top club.
"I have a couple of months to plan everything correctly," said Klinsmann, who currently lives in California with his family. "I'm going to put together an international team that is partly made up of Americans but also people from other countries."
Klinsmann said his priority will be to ensure top performances from the players while also allowing them to enjoy themselves.
"I have learnt how to work with specialists and how to extract the maximum from the players," said Klinsmann, who has never coached a club level but led Germany to a third-place finish at the 2006 home World Cup.
The former Bayern striker said he people in mind for the position of co-trainer with former team-mate Guido Buchwald and Austrian Andreas Herzog believed to be in the frame.
Munich's high-profile leadership of president Franz Beckenbauer, Rummenigge and Uli Hoeness have all given their blessing to a revamp of the club's structures by Klinsmann to help get the best out of a star-studded team featuring the likes of Franck Ribery, Luca Toni and Miroslav Klose.
The four-time European Cup winners invested around 100 million euros (148 million dollars) in new players last summer following the club's failure to qualify for the Champions League. Bayern's last international success was the 2001 Champions League trophy.
"By making the decision to invest so much in the team we have shown that we are ready to go in a new direction," said club manager Hoeness.
Klinsmann is expected to receive an annual salary of 8 million euros at Bayern, making him by far the best paid coach in the country.
He has said he will keep his distance until Hitzfeld, who celebrated his 59th birthday Saturday, steps down at the end of the season.
"I will stay back until the takeover date," said Klinsmann.
Klinsmann won the 1990 World Cup and captained Germany to the Euro 1996 title, scoring 46 goals in 108 Germany caps. His club career 1984-1998 saw the prolific striker play at VfB Stuttgart, Inter Milan, Monaco, Tottenham Hotspur, Sampdoria and Munich, with whom he won the Bundesliga and the 1996 UEFA Cup.
