Jurgen Klinsmann refused to rule out a return to Tottenham in the summer after Jose Mourinho was sacked earlier this week, claiming that anything is possible in football.

Following the decision to part ways with the Special One, Daniel Levy appointed former academy graduate and head of academy player development Ryan Mason as the interim head coach for the rest of the season.

Mason got off to a good start last night in the Premier League, securing a 2-1 win over Southampton. However, his second game in charge will come against Man City in the Carabao Cup Final.

When asked about whether he would want the permanent Spurs role, Klinsmann revealed that he never expected to manage Germany, the USA or Bayern Munich. He added that we would have to wait and see who the next Spurs manager will be.

Klinsmann played 50 games for Spurs back in 1994/95 and scored an impressive 29 goals. He then returned to the club in 1997 to play another 18 and score another nine.

He said (ESPN): “I tell you anything is possible in life.

“I never thought in the first place I would coach Germany [at] a World Cup. I never thought I’d coach the US for six months or Bayern Munich.

“We will see in a couple of months who’s going to be the Spurs manager.”
