Tottenham hero Jurgen Klinsmann has said that he would consider an offer to be Denmark’s next head coach.

Klinsmann is revered by the Tottenham fan base, having spent two spells at the North London club as a player.

Since retiring from the game, the 58-year-old has managed the German national team as well as Bayern Munich but he has been out of work since leaving Hertha Berlin in 2020. 

During the summer of 2021, when Spurs were looking for a new head coach to replace Jose Mourinho, Klinsmann was mooted for the role and even admitted at the that time that he was open to returning as the club still holds a special place in his heart (ESPN).

Tottenham eventually decided to appoint Nuno Espirito Santo that summer but the Portuguese coach lasted just four months in the job before being replaced by Antonio Conte.

Klinsmann has now suggested that he is open to returning to international management, stating that he is ‘open-minded’ about the idea of replacing Kasper Hjulmand at the helm of the Danish national team.

When asked about the Denmark job, the former Spurs man told Bold: “You can never reject anything in advance. You always have to keep an open mind and listen to people, and then you make a decision if you get the chance.

“Right now I’m looking forward to the WC in Qatar, and then we’ll have to see what happens afterwards.

“Of course, I would like to go back and be a coach after the World Cup finals, now that the covid pandemic is also over. So I have to see if a door or two opens when the World Cup is over.”

I have a major soft spot for Denmark, given that they have Hojbjerg and Eriksen in their ranks and also down to the fight they showed during the last European Championship to get to the semifinal. If Klinsmann does become their head coach, that will be one more big reason to root for the Danes in major tournaments.
