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.
