Germany coach picks local ally as assistant

BERLIN, Aug 23 (Reuters) - Germany coach Joachim Loew has named little-known former third division coach Hans-Dieter Flick to be his assistant, the German Football Association (DFB) announced on Wednesday.

Like Loew and his predecessor Juergen Klinsmann, who both speak with a strong southern German accent, Flick hails from the same part of southwestern Germany and coached third division side TSG Hoffenheim for five years before he was sacked in 2005.

Flick, 41, was a midfielder who played 148 matches for Bayern Munich and scored six goals between 1984 and 1990. He later played 44 matches for Cologne before retiring in 1993. Widely known as "Hansi Flick", he never played for Germany.

'He embodies the attack style of football that we were looking for,' said Loew in a statement.

Flick, who was born in Heidelberg and coached the team in nearby Hoffenheim, had recently been working as an assistant at Red Bull Salzburg.

Germany begin Euro 2008 qualifying against Ireland on Sept. 2 in Stuttgart.
