Klinsmann on agenda for Tottenham board

Jurgen Klinsmann is being linked with Martin Jol's job at Tottenham.

The Mail on Sunday says Jol faces a crucial six-match spell that could decide his future at the club, even after his side's 4-0 demolition of Premier League newcomers Derby County yesterday.

And the man the Tottenham board will turn to should the Dutchman fail to deliver a rapid improvement in the club's fortunes is former Spurs favourite and Germany coach Klinsmann.

Spurs now face a six-match Premier League schedule which features games against three of last season's top-four clubs, starting with a visit to Manchester United on Sunday, followed by a derby clash with Arsenal and ending with a visit to Liverpool.

Spurs also face Fulham, Bolton and Aston Villa.

Although there is still plenty of boardroom support for Jol, there is also an awareness that an approach for Klinsmann would be very popular with White Hart Lane fans, who still hero-worship him following two spells at the club in the Nineties.
