The United States national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann has said that he will not be returning to Tottenham as the manager. Jurgen Klinsmann is regarded as one of the fans favourite at the White Hart Lane. Tottenham recently sacked their manager Harry Redknapp after he fell out with chairman Daniel Levy. The future of Harry Redknapp has been under major scrutiny in the last few weeks when it emerged that he has had a major bust up with chairman Daniel Levy. Even though Redknapp has denied the speculation, he recently left the post as the manager after four years in charge.
Harry Redknapp took over at Tottenham when they were in the relegation zone, but has guided them to two fourth place finishes in the Premier league. Tottenham qualified for the Champions League for the first time under Harry Redknapp, but they failed to do so this season due to the victory for Chelsea in the final against Bayern Munich. As a result, Tottenham have to play in the Europa league. More than the prospect of playing in the second grade European competition, Daniel Levy is thought to be extremely furious at the way Tottenham threw a 10 point advantage in the league.
‘It just isn’t a realistic proposition for Jurgen at the moment. He has very fond memories of his time at White Hart Lane and needs no reminding that it is a big job. He has the utmost respect for Tottenham. But the timing isn’t right. He has no thoughts of leaving the post he has at the moment and is totally committed to leading the United States into the next World Cup,’ said Jurgen Klinsmann’s spokesman Roland Eitel. The former Tottenham player has emerged as one of the favourites to succeed Harry Redknapp at White Hart Lane.
The United States national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann has said that he is not looking at the possibility of replacing Harry Redknapp at Tottenham. Jurgen Klinsmann recently took over as the national team manager of the United States from Bob Bradley. He has been doing an excellent job with the team, as he recently guided them to a 1-0 win over 2006 World Champion’s Italy. Now, Harry Redknapp has been linked with the England managerial job after the resignation of Fabio Capello. Harry Redknapp has been able to guide Tottenham to the Champions League once in the last three seasons, while they are on course to finish in the top four this season as well.
However, ever since the speculation regarding the future of Harry Redknapp started, Tottenham have not been playing well in the league. Hence, it is thought that the board of Tottenham are looking to arrive at a swift decision regarding the future of Harry Redknapp. Jurgen Klinsmann has been spoken about as one of the ideal candidates for the Tottenham job given his experience of the England club during his playing days. However, the USA national team manager has ruled out the possibility of him joining Tottenham in the near future saying that he is committed to his current job.
“It’s just a wonderful club. But I am extremely proud and privileged to be US national team coach. opefully we will have, after qualification, a great World Cup in Brazil. Then, in soccer, just like in any other environment, you never know what will happen,” Klinsmann said in an interview given to the British tabloid paper. Klinsmann, though, has not been successful at club level after his poor spell with Bayern Munich a few seasons ago. However, he has been extremely successful in the international scene.
Former Bayern Munich manager Jurgen Klinsmann has played down reports linking him with a move to Tottenham. Jurgen Klinsmann is currently the national team manager of the United States. He was appointed only recently, but there has been growing speculation that the former Tottenham player could return as a manager at a North London shortly. Current Tottenham manager Harry Redknapp is being linked with the vacant England managerial position. Even though Harry Redknapp appeared to suggest that a part-time role would be viable for both parties, it would be interesting to see if Tottenham agree to such a prospect.
As a result, Jurgen Klinsmann is being one of the names touted to become the next Tottenham manager. However, the former Bayern Munich manager has said that he is not interested in taking over at Tottenham and has confirmed that he is extremely happy with his current role as the national team manager of the United States. The 64-year-old Harry Redknapp has said that would be the dream for any England manager to be appointed as the national team coach. Fabio Capello recently resigned from his position as the England manager after falling out with the England football Association over the John Terry issue.
“I’m very happy in my role as USA manager and busy preparing for the start of World Cup qualifying this summer,” United States coach Klinsmann said when asked about the possibility of him returning to Tottenham. Jurgen Klinsmann was at North London in two spells and is one of the fans favourite. Tottenham have been extremely good under Harry Redknapp and it will be interesting to see if they will be willing to let go of their manager, who has been largely responsible for making them into Champions League contenders. Tottenham are currently third in the Premier league table.
