Klopp replaces Doll as Borussia Dortmund coach

BERLIN, May 23 (Reuters) - Borussia Dortmund have hired Juergen Klopp as Thomas Doll's replacement as coach of the Bundesliga club after the former German international midfielder resigned at the end of the season.

Klopp spent 18 years as a player and coach at second division Mainz but left the post at the end of the last campaign after the club failed to win promotion to the Bundesliga.

The 40-year-old would take charge of the 1997 Champions League winners on a two-year contract through June 2010, club officials said at a news conference on Friday.

Dortmund , the only Bundesliga club listed on the stock exchange, finished 13th in the league last season but qualified for the UEFA Cup by reaching the German Cup final.

Although they were beaten by Bayern Munich, the Bavarian Bundesliga winners had already qualified for the Champions League allowing Dortmund to take a UEFA Cup berth.
