Jurgen Klinsmann is still keen for a comeback to Tottenham.
Jurgen Klinsmann has stated that Tottenham is in his “heart” and that he would be interested in taking over as manager.
The 56-year-old, who has managed the United States, Bayern Munich, and Germany, played for Spurs twice in the 1990s and is still well-liked by the fans.
Klinsmann contacted chairman Daniel Levy after Jose Mourinho was fired but did not receive a response, despite the fact that he is still interested in the job in north London.
“I contacted him after he let Mourinho go and said ‘Daniel, what’s the case now?” the German remarked while working as a BBC analyst.
“And he said to me, ‘I have so much to do right now at the club to work things out, let’s chat later.’ Then I noticed all of the different names coming in, talking, and leaving. The situation is still the same today.
“Spurs are in my heart, and I would consider it – but if he doesn’t want to, I won’t push him.”
Klinsmann last worked for Bundesliga club Hertha Berlin in February 2020, but he quit after three months and has not worked since.
Since sacking Mourinho 60 days ago, Spurs’ managerial hunt has devolved into farce.
They were close to recruiting former Roma manager Paulo Fonseca this week after holding talks with Mauricio Pochettino and Antonio Conte, until Gennaro Gattuso became available after leaving Fiorentina.
Spurs, though, decided not to pursue the Italian after receiving negative feedback from fans.
