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.
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.
Sign him up!!!!— Andrew Brink (@RocCitySpurs) September 25, 2019
Would be second best option apart from Poch staying— Berlin Spurs (@BerlinSpurs) September 26, 2019
This ain’t it…— (@leNdombele) September 26, 2019
If poch leaves mid season I’d take klinsmann as a temporary choice but need to end up woth either ten haag or eddie howe— Bido Shalaby (@BidoShalaby92) September 26, 2019
Let’s hope Poch stays a lot longer but the thought of Jurgen in future is appealing.— Alf Love (@alf_love47) September 26, 2019
If Poch did leave i’d be happy about this but I don’t want poch to leave.— Rueben (@thfcrue) September 26, 2019
I don’t want Poch to leave obviously but this is a solid replacement. He literally made Germany relevant again after the state of their team in the 2004-2005 years. He built the base for Low to guide them to WC glory. That 2006 WC he put Germany back where they belong— LP (@thfclp__) September 26, 2019
KLINSMANN is a fraud as manager. Löw took Germany to the semis. He just motivated players. What has he done for the USA? Pochettino is our man!— Bernhard Trogrlic (@Beno_Hotspur) September 26, 2019
He’d be an absolute disaster. Loved him as a player but he’s failed in all his management work.— The Wheel Of DOOM (@wheel_doom) September 26, 2019
