Kaiserslautern are set to
appoint Krasimir Balakov as manager of the relegation-threatened
team after Marco Kurz was sacked on Tuesday, a source close to
the Bulgarian said on Wednesday.
The source told Reuters that Balakov, 45, had agreed to join
Kaiserslautern said there would be a news conference to
unveil a new coach on Thursday, who would also take
over the afternoon training session, but refused to reveal the
name of Kurz's successor.
Balakov, who played for VfB Stuttgart from 1995 to 2003 and
was briefly their player-manager, has been coaching Hajduk Split
in Croatia since 2011.
He was a member of the Bulgaria team that
finished fourth at the 1994 World Cup.
Kaiserslautern are bottom of the Bundesliga after failing to
win in their last 16 league games and lie five points below the
relegation play-off spot.
