US coach Jurgen Klinsmann has ruled out a return to White Hart Lane after being reportedly sounded out about the Tottenham job, according to The Daily Mail.
With Harry Redknapp remaining the clear favourite to be the next full-time England boss, Spurs are lining up his successor for next season’s campaign. Their former striker has however ruled himself out of the running, saying that he was extremely privileged to be leading the US into their 2014 World Cup campaign.
Klinsmann remains the bookies’ favourite however, just ahead of Everton boss David Moyes who must fancy his chances of finally getting his hands on a top four side. The Everton manager isn’t the ‘Hollywood’ name that some might fancy, but to say he is respected is an understatement.
Jose Mourinho is third favourite, although Real Madrid will be loath to lose the man set to guide them to La Liga glory.
Further down the list are the likes of Newcastle boss Alan Pardew, Swansea’s Brendan Rogers has caught the imagination of many a Tottenham fan by playing a style of football that push and run lovers are finding very easy on the eye.Benfica coach Jorge Jesus and Barcalona’s Pep Guardiola. SkyBet even have Arsene Wenger at an unlikely 66/1.
Tottenham’s recent overseas managerial appointments have tended to struggle so don’t be surprised to see somebody like Brendan Rogers given his chance at the Lane.
