Jurgen Klinsmann has thrown his name into the hat for the Tottenham job by admitting that he would not be able to turn down a chance to manage the club.

Klinsmann had a fantastic relationship with Spurs fans during the two years he spent as a player at White Hart Lane.

The 56-year-old has also had an impressive coaching career, with successful stints in charge of the German and United States national teams.

Klinsmann is now arguably best known for his work as a pundit for ESPN but the German did return to top-flight management with Hertha Berlin in November 2019, although he resigned only ten weeks into the role.

Tottenham’s hunt for a new manager continues to throw some surprises, with reports now indicating that Mauricio Pochettino could be in line for a sensational return to the club just a year and a half after being sacked by the club.

Klinsmann has now revealed that he would also be interested in the role, admitting that he maintains a good relationship with Daniel Levy.

Watch what the legendry striker told Sky Sports about the Spurs job:

Spurs Web Opinion

Klinsmann will always have a special place in the hearts of Spurs fans but there is no chance that the club will be considering him for the managerial role at this point in his career.

Perhaps, he could be a decent choice for a caretaker role for a brief stint if we find ourselves in trouble but he is not likely to be on Tottenham’s shortlist for a new permanent manager.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. I can’t see how ” there is no chance that the club will be considering him “. A manager with proven pedigree and very attack minded too.
