Klinsmann reveals Levy call
Tottenham are still on the lookout for a new permanent manager and former striker Jurgen Klinsmann has opened up on a call he had with chairman Daniel Levy.
The former Germany boss said on BBC: “Well I called him [Levy] when he let Mourinho go, and said Daniel ‘What’s the case now?’.
“He said ‘listen, I’ve got so much to do right now, got to sort things out at the club, let’s talk later on’.
“Then I saw all the different names walking in, talking, walking out. And the same still today.
“Spurs is in my heart, absolutely would I consider that but if he doesn’t want to you cannot force him.”

Paratici’s Spurs challenge becomes clear
Fabio Paratici has not even officially begun his time at Tottenham but he will already be realising what a different challenge he has on his hands.
The 48-year-old was officially announced as Spurs’ new managing director of football last weekend, with his job role starting at the beginning of next month.
Paratici has come from a club in Juventus that rarely broke with their routine or chose wildly different managers.

Kane opens up on England sub
Harry Kane was once again disappointing for England as they were held to a goalless draw with Scotland at Wembley.
Kane, the Three Lions’ captain, was widely criticised for his display in his country’s win against Croatia last weekend, where he was taken off with less than 10 minutes to go.
Yesterday evening, the 27-year-old Spurs star lasted even less time on the pitch, with Gareth Southgate replacing him on 74 minutes – and he has now spoken about the decision from the England boss.
Asked by ITV what he thought of Southgate’s decision he said: “It’s part of the game, the manager felt that was the right decision so you just have to take it. It is what it is.”
