Klinsmann opens door to Spurs job
After Jose Mourinho was sacked from the job as Tottenham Hotspurs’ head coach the names which have been touted as his replacement have been varied.
From Julian Nagelsmann to Maurizio Sarri, there are plenty of options it seems for Daniel Levy to consider.
However, former Spurs striker Jurgen Klinsmann has opened the door to a return to North London in a coaching capacity.
“I tell you anything is possible in life. I never thought in the first place I would coach Germany [at] a World Cup. I never thought I’d coach the US for six months or Bayern Munich. We will see in a couple of months who’s going to be the Spurs manager,” Klinsmann told ESPN.
Klinsmann’s last coaching role was with Hertha Berlin who he joined in 2019 having left the US men’s national team in 2016.
He left Hertha Berlin after 10 weeks claiming he had not been given the trust by the ownership.
“I also need the trust of the people involved for this task, which has not yet been completed,” he said.
“The manner in which he left is unacceptable,” said club investor Lars Windhorst.
Could this count against him as a possible candidate for Tottenham?
Mason on the job
Ryan Mason has been handed the reins to the club he once played for as interim coach until Spurs find a more permanent solution.
He was asked on what type of Tottenham he wanted. Pressed if the club should be more of an attacking side than what had been shown under Jose Mourinho.
“I’d hope to think it’s what a Tottenham Hotspur side would historically look like,” Mason explained. “I want us to be brave and aggressive, to play like Tottenham Hotspur.
“With such a short turnaround with games at the moment, the most important thing is to get the players in a right frame of mind, to give them some key principles in how we want to approach games of football and then hopefully as that goes on that can develop.”
Mason was pressed on his thoughts in regards to what had gone before and was quick to dismiss the talk.
“I don’t think it’s about the previous management. That’s gone now,” he continued.
“Our focus as a football club is to prepare for the game tomorrow, which we have done and once that’s out the way we can look to the next game. The most important thing for this football club is to win football matches.”
Spurs play Manchester City with the chance to win a trophy for the first time in over a decade this weekend.
