Klose targets Bayern future

16 June 2010 01:15
Germany striker Miroslav Klose remains certain that he will still be a Bayern Munich player next season. The 32-year-old struggled to make his mark with the double winners last term, but is content to stay put and fight for his future at the Allianz Arena. He told the Deutsche Presseagentur: "I am definitely not going to join Kaiserslautern, this has never been an option for me. "I am going to play the World Cup first and then I will resume with Bayern Munich. I really enjoy being a player at Bayern and I am enjoying working with an excellent manager in Louis van Gaal. "I am still of the opinion that I have the ability to win back a regular role in the Bayern line-up." One man who will not be at Bayern next season is Italian frontman Luca Toni, who has left the club by mutual consent. The 33-year-old scored 51 goals in 80 Bundesliga and European appearances for Bayern, before falling out of favour under van Gaal. Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told the club's official website: "I would like to thank Luca Toni with all of my heart for his performances and goals, particularly in the 2007-08 double-winning season. "I wish Luca Toni all the best with the future at his new club."
