Klinsmann mostly lives in the US and replaces Bob Bradley, who was sacked on Thursday after four and a half years in charge. "I am proud and honoured to be named the head coach. I'm excited about the challenge ahead," said the German.

The 46-year-old will take charge of the US for the first time against Mexico on 10 August. As a player, Klinsmann won the 1990 World Cup and 1996 European Championships with West Germany and Germany respectively. Following his retirement in 1998, Klinsmann took charge of the German national side in 2004 and led them to third place at the 2006 World Cup.

He later had a brief spell with Bayern Munich, taking them to the quarter-finals of the Champions League. "He is a highly accomplished player and coach with the experience and knowledge to advance the program," said US Soccer president Sunil Gulati. "Jurgen has had success in many different areas of the game and we look forward to the leadership he will provide on and off the field."

Klinsmann will be introduced at a press conference in New York on Monday.
