“I want to be a Tottenham manager someday” Dan Klinsman, from SON and Tottenham, ‘Great Unity’￼
Coach Jurgen Klinsmann, who was appointed as the head coach of the Korean national team A, is the leader who was mentioned as a candidate for Tottenham coach after Jose Mourinho laid down the Tottenham baton in April 2021.
For Klinsman, Tottenham is his ‘parent’. In the 1994-1995 season토토사이트, when he was at his peak, he left AS Monaco and played one season for Tottenham, and is evaluated as a legend. He scored 29 goals in 50 matches at the time. He scored 20 goals in 41 matches in the English Premier League. He also decorated his last active career at Tottenham. Coach Klinsman, who was a member of Sampdoria, was loaned to Tottenham in the winter of the 1997-1998 season and played 18 games and scored 9 goals.
Coach Klinsman, who became a leader over the years, was nominated for the Tottenham command post two years ago. He was also strongly recommended as Tottenham manager by Gary Lineker, England’s national striker at the time. However, when he was pushed by manager Antonio Conte and was unable to take the Tottenham baton, manager Klinsman said, “I want to be Tottenham manager someday.”
Although his dream of becoming Tottenham manager is yet to come true, he seized the opportunity to coach Tottenham native players. It is Son Heung-min (31) of ‘Sonsational’. Son Heung-min is a Tottenham star. Since the 2015-2016 season, he has been wearing a Tottenham uniform and has scored 140 goals in 357 matches. In particular, in the 2021-2022 season, he scored 23 goals in 35 Premier League matches and tied Mohamed Salah (Liverpool) as the top scorer.
British media ‘HITC’ also paid attention to the meeting between Klinsman and Son Heung-min. The media reported that “Only Tottenham legend Klins has returned to the manager’s position, and now he will coach Son Heung-min in the Korean national team.” He added, “Seizing another opportunity to shine as a manager, Klinsmann will now go on the international stage with Tottenham star Heung-Min Son.”
He also said, “Coach Klinsman will build a team around Son Heung-min. As Son Heung-min turns 31, it is unclear how long he will play for Korea.” Still, “the two can definitely bond over their Tottenham career. It’s unclear if only Klins will be able to coach Tottenham, but they can be satisfied with the next best thing to managing Son Heung-min.”
