Tottenham hero Jurgen Klinsmann reveals Daniel Levy talks for manager job
Tottenham have been without a full-time manager for well over a month now, following the sacking of Jose Mourinho towards the end of April. Ryan Mason took charge of the team on an interim basis and saw out the 2020/21 season.
But with the summer transfer window fast approaching, planning for the next season needs to be underway. However, Tottenham are yet to appoint a new manager. For a while last week, it looked like Antonio Conte could be set to take over the reins at the club. But, a deal fell apart due to the Italian tactician’s lofty demands.
Now back to square one, Tottenham are once again searching for a new manager. And Klinsmann, who had two stints at the club as a player, has thrown his hat in the ring for the job.
In fact, the former Bayern Munich boss has claimed that he spoke to chairman Daniel Levy about the post soon after Mourinho was sacked. But, he has admitted there has been no contact ever since.
“When Spurs let go Mourinho, I had a quick phone call with Daniel Levy and he said ‘let’s see down the road what happens’, he has to clarify a lot of things. Since then I’ve had no contact anymore with Spurs. Tottenham is Tottenham, you would always listen to that situation, and for me, obviously, Tottenham is a lot more.”

Klinsmann may be a revered figure among the Tottenham fans. But appointing him as manager wouldn’t be the wisest choice. The German has been without a job for over a year now, with his last stint as manager with Hertha Berlin lasting for just ten games only. The club, though, needs to narrow down on a candidate at the earliest possible and make an appointment.
