Jurgen Klinsmann: Former Tottenham striker keen on vacant manager's job

Former Tottenham Hotspur striker Jurgen Klinsmann says he has called chairman Daniel Levy about the vacant manager's job and would "absolutely" take it.

Spurs sacked Jose Mourinho on 19 April but have endured a chaotic search for a replacement.

"Spurs is still in my heart," Klinsmann told BBC Sport.

Asked by Gary Lineker during the BBC's Euro 2020 coverage on Friday if he would like the job, the German added: "Absolutely would I consider that, but if he doesn't want to I cannot force it."

The 56-year-old enjoyed two spells at White Hart Lane, winning the Football Writers' Association Player of the Year award in 1994-95 after scoring 30 goals in all competitions that season.

He returned to the club during the 1997-98 campaign and scored nine goals in 15 games to help Spurs avoid relegation.
