Klinsmann keen on Premiership as Liverpool talk emerges

Jurgen Klinsmann won't rule out a move to the Premiership. The Sun says Klinsmann's clandestine meetings with George Gillett and Tom Hicks caused chaos in their relationship with Liverpool boss Rafa Benitez a couple of years ago.

And asked if managing a Premier League club still appeals, Klinsmann said: "You never rule anything out.

"Once you've experienced the emotions that football can give you, you want to continue having them. I never thought I would manage Germany in the World Cup and then become Bayern Munich manager last year."

Curiously, the ex-Tottenham striker is in England this week - and was shocked by Liverpool's loss at home to Lyon on Tuesday in the Champions League.

But he said: "I think a tie in Lyon and if you beat Fiorentina at home that will probably put you through.

"So nothing's lost yet. It's a difficult moment for Rafa. Maybe the game on Sunday is the right one to beat Manchester United at home to turn the situation around."
