Tottenham Hotspur Transfer: Why Jurgen Klinsmann Belongs To US!
The Tottenham Hotspur appear to have renewed their interest in signing Jurgen Klinsmann as their next manager. According to Paul Gorst of Sportsmole, the EPL club expressed their interest in signing the German should their manager Tim Sherwood fail to impress.
White Hart Lane may want Klinsmann after their match against Arsenal resulted in being shut out by the latter. According to the 2013/14 EPL tables published on ESPN-FC, the Spurs are at sixth place 37 points.
Of the 20 matches played, the Spurs have 11 wins, four draws, and five losses. They have 24 goals for and 25 goals against resulting in a goal differential of minus one.
White Hart Lane does not even qualify for the Europa League.
Since taking over as US Soccer coach from Bob Bradley in 2011, the North American team has seen gradual change. The team managed to win the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup and classify for the 2014 World Cup.
The USA managed to defeat Mexico, Italy, and Jamaica on their home turf. Germany lost to to America at the US Soccer Centennial match last summer. Klinsmann was Germany's National Coach until he was replaced by Joachim Lowe after their loss to Spain in Euro 2008.
The Spurs should find a long term solution to their current problems. For the time being, Klinsmann has a contract with America until 2018.
The USA needs Klinsmann to consolidate its football program and make it world competitive. At the same time, English managers [and clubs] may want to learn from Steve Mc Claren [according to Chelsea Manager Jose Mourinho and published in The Guardian] and go abroad.
It would not be a bad idea if the Spurs management and some players were to to do the same thing. The experience would be rewarding and may generate results.
