Jurgen Klinsmann has admitted that Daniel Levy spoke to him about the vacant Tottenham managerial position after Jose Mourinho’s sacking.
Following the breakdown in talks between Antonio Conte and Spurs last week, it remains unclear as to what Tottenham’s next move is going to be.
While some sources have suggested that there is still a chance that Conte could be the next Spurs head coach, others have claimed that the North London club are set to move on to other options like Erik Ten Hag and Roberto Martinez.
Klinsmann is certainly not one of the front-runners for the job, however, the German told ESPN FC that Levy had indeed called him regarding the managerial position after Mourinho’s departure.
Klinsmann revealed that the Tottenham chairman told him “let’s see what all happens down the road” but admitted that the club have not contacted him since then.
The former USA boss stated that he would certainly be open to joining Spurs, admitting that the club still hold a special place in his heart.

While Klinsmann obviously has a special relationship with Spurs fans, I do not see how the club would be considering him for anything beyond a temporary role. It could be that Levy purely consulted with him regarding the appointment rather than considering the German as a serious candidate for the role.
