Balakov to take job


The source told Reuters Balakov, 45, had agreed to join the club but the official announcement has yet to be made.

Balakov, who played for VfB Stuttgart from 1995 to 2003 and was briefly their player-manager, has coached Hajduk Split 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 stand five points below the relegation play-off spot.
