USA manager Jurgen Klinsmann is focused on guiding his charges to the 2014 World Cup

Tottenham legend Jurgen Klinsmann has joined Newcastle manager Alan Pardew in distancing himself from the Spurs job.

Former manager Harry Redknapp left the club on Thursday morning and the USA manager was linked with the vacant position.

However, Klinsmann is focused on guiding the United States to the 2014 World Cup in Brazil.

“It just isn’t a realistic proposition for Jurgen at the moment,” publicist Roland Eitel told the Daily Mail.

“He has very fond memories of his time at White Hart Lane and needs no reminding that it is a big job.

“He has the utmost respect for Tottenham.

“But the timing isn’t right.

“He has no thoughts of leaving the post he has at the moment and is totally committed to leading the United States into the next World Cup.”
