Jurgen Klinsmann

USA head coach Jurgen Klinsmann looked on as his old side Tottenham Hotspur lost against Stoke City yesterday.

Tottenham Hotspur legend Jurgen Klinsmann sat in the stands and watched his old side lose to Stoke City over the weekend.

The German turned down the chance to become head coach at Spurs last year, but what was he doing at White Hart Lane yesterday?

His role as boss of the USA senior side involves him attending several matches all over the world as he scouts players within his American setup but no USA stars started the game between Spurs and Stoke yesterday.

American goalkeeper Bred Friedel has retired from international football while Stoke City defender Geoff Cameron only got game time when he came on as a substitute for an injury in the ninth minute.

Needless to say that if Daniel Levy does pull the trigger on Mauricio Pochettino, the German coach is one of the names that will be linked with the huge position at White Hart Lane.
