Jurgen Klinsmann keen on becoming Tottenham manager

Former Tottenham striker Jurgen Klinsmann says he'd consider the manager's job at the club if he was offered the position.

The Germany legend scored 30 goals in two brief stints in North London as a player and the ex-Bayern Munich and USA boss feels Spurs need to rediscover their identity following the departure of Jose Mourinho.

"Definitely you'd entertain it, no doubt," he told Sky Sports News when asked if he'd be interested in job. "Daniel Levy has my number, he can call me anytime. Spurs is something that you'd always consider.

"I'm always in touch and doing stuff with Spurs is always something special. I had the best time of my life there during my two spells.

"In the football world, things happen so fast. I never thought I'd coach Germany or the United States so you have to have an open mind. You have to always think about new challenges, so why not Spurs?"

Do everything possible to keep Harry Kane

Klinsmann left Tottenham for Bayern Munich in pursuit of trophies and he says he can understand why Kane is reportedly looking to move away this summer.

"I feel sympathy for both sides, especially Harry, who has been the flag of the club for so many years. He's done so much for them.

"The market is out there for him. Teams would grab him right away and they'd probably put down a lot of money.

"I personally hope he stays at Spurs but I also can understand him. I was in that situation in 1995. I badly wanted silverware and it worked out that way. I went to Bayern Munch and won the UEFA Cup and German championship.

"If Harry leaves then you have a problem because maybe Heung-Min Son says: 'Hang on, I might move on as well then'.

"The most important path now is [for Spurs] to sit down with Harry, discuss the situation and lay out how he can continue his career with Spurs, how the roster will look for next season to make the squad even stronger.

"The quality is there. It needs a bit of fixing up but the key figure in all this is definitely Harry Kane. You've got to do everything possible to keep him."
