Speaking from a purely personal point of view I desperately want Harry to stay and as such, you won’t have seen too much in the way of managerial speculation on these pages. However, it was interesting to note the rumours concerning Jurgen Klinsmann and in particular the suggestion that he was putting his name in the frame followed by a subsequent denial.
Those stories began to emerge yesterday suggesting that our former striker was keen on the job before he made this comment.
I’m very happy in my role as USA manager and busy preparing for the start of World Cup qualifying this summer.”
But would Jurgen be a good fit for the White Hart Lane job? His managerial career began in 2004 and has so far taken in Bayern Munich as well as the German and USA national manager’s positions. He remains without managerial honours but then there are few International bosses who can boast a bulging trophy cabinet.
Then of course there is the question of the returning player. Both Messrs Hoddle and Ardiles are still loved by fans but their reputations did suffer somewhat with their records in charge of the club.
Overall, if Harry does walk, is Jurgen a good contender for the WHL hot seat?
