Jurgen Klinsmann reportedly fancies a return to Tottenham Hotspur.

Tottenham Hotspur are nowhere near to being in the market for a new manager, but they are already being linked with potential bosses.

Spurs are in dismal form at the moment, with Tuesday's Carabao Cup exit at the hands of League Two side Colchester United compounding the recent misery.

Tottenham can't buy a win away from home right now, and Mauricio Pochettino has confirmed there are splits emerging in the Spurs dressing room.

 

Pochettino doesn't necessarily look set to leave Spurs any time soon, but some do feel this could be his final season in charge – and one former Tottenham ace is being touted.

The Daily Mail claim that Jurgen Klinsmann is interested in becoming the next Spurs manager, seemingly eyeing the job for whenever Pochettino goes.

The 55-year-old was a Spurs favourite as a player having hit 38 goals in 68 games for the club in two spells, before becoming the boss of Germany, Bayern Munich and the United States.

Juergen Klinsmann looks on prior to the UEFA Euro 2020 qualifier match between Northern Ireland and Germany at Windsor Park on September 09, 2019 in Belfast, Northern Ireland.

Klinsmann blew hot and cold in all three spells, and has now been out of management for almost three years, meaning the rumour is dividing Spurs fans.

Some fans would love to have Klinsmann back at the club if Pochettino does move on, urging the club to sign him up should that situation arise, but are mostly backing Pochettino to turn things around..

 Others just think that Klinsmann isn't good enough, believing that Klinsmann is a 'fraud' and would be a 'disaster' back at Spurs, even if he knows the club from his time there as a player.
