Soccer-Klinsmann interested in Spurs job
(Reuters) - Former Germany and United States coach Juergen Klinsmann said he is interested in the vacant managerial position at Tottenham Hotspur and had even called club chairman Daniel Levy after he sacked Jose Mourinho.
Spurs have been linked with a series of managers since sacking Mourinho in April including Portugal's Paulo Fonseca and Nuno Espirito Santo, Italians Antonio Conte and Gennaro Gattuso, and former boss Mauricio Pochettino, the Argentine now with Paris Saint Germain.
Klinsmann, appearing on the BBC as a pundit during Euro 2020, was asked by another former Spurs player, presenter Gary Lineker, if he would be interested in the job."I called him after he let Mourinho go and said 'hey what's the case now?' He said, 'I have so much to do right now, to sort things out at the club, let's talk a bit later on'," said Klinsmann.
"Then I saw all the names walking in and talking and walking out and the same still today. Spurs in my heart, would I consider that? But you cannot force him," he said.Asked directly by Lineker if he would be interested in the job, Klinsmann said:"Absolutely". headtopics.com
