Klinsmann into 5/1 for England job following United States sack

Since leaving the US national team on Monday, Klinsmann has dropped from 33/1 to 5/1 to be the next England manager.

Klinsmann into 5/1 for England job following United States sack

Jurgen Klinsmann has been frequently linked to vacant England manager positions over the last few years and it's no surprise to see his odds shorten now he is a free agent.

He is now the 5/1 second favourite to get the England job on a permanent job, though is 14/1 elsewhere. With the FA seemingly prepared to give Southgate the job, his odds of 1/10 do look insurmountable. If there is any truth to rumours this week of disrespect by interviewing Southgate for four hours following his four-game spell in charge of the team, those odds could be made a mockery of.

Going by his previous comments Southgate himself does not seem 100% certain of his desire to become the permanent manager and if he were to reject the job it would seem Klinsmann is the man next in line.

Klinsmann does have a good international record, both as a player and manager and with his time spent in England he would seem an ideal candidate. He has experience of winning the World Cup as a player in 1990, guided Germany to a third-place finish in 2006 as a manager in 2006 and finished in the last-16 with the unfancied USA team in 2014.
