Klinsmann interested in vacant manager role

    Jurgen Klinsmann admitted ‘anything is possible’ when asked about the possibility of him being appointed the new Tottenham boss this summer, refusing to rule himself out of the running.

    Spurs are on the hunt for a new manager following the departure of Jose Mourinho, with Ryan Mason handed the reins on an interim basis until the end of the season.

    A whole host of names have already been thrown into the mix with regards to potential candidates, with 90min exclusively revealing Spurs are lining up a move for Leicester manager Brendan Rodgers.

    Klinsmann became something of a cult hero during his brief spell with Spurs in the mid 90s before stepping into management following his retirement in 2003, and he’s refused to rule himself out of the running to be new Tottenham boss this summer.

    “I tell you, anything is possible in life,” he told ESPN when asked about the vacant position. “I never thought I would coach Germany at a World Cup. I never thought I would coach the USA for six years or Bayern Munich. So we’ll see in a couple of months who will be the Spurs manager.”

    Klinsmann says Champions League qualification this season is crucial for Spurs’ development as a club, and he believes the sacking of Mourinho was based more on his style of play than the team’s performance in the league.

    “It’s a huge, huge decision,” he added. “The timing as well, a couple of days before the cup final, they wanted to send out a signal that it wasn’t going in the right direction.

    “Daniel Levy cut the rope and will figure out what to do over the next couple of months. It was definitely a decision about Jose [Mourinho] in terms of his style of play and what the Spurs fans want to see.

    “From where they are in the Premier League you can still justify certain things because they are two points away from the Champions League now.

    “But what they wanted was to go for the title and they were doing that at the start of the season. They were up there for a little while and then they dropped month by month and Levy has pulled the plug.

    “They really need to get into the Champions League. If they win the final then awesome, it’s nice to have a little piece of silverware, but it’s crucial to get into the Champions League.”
