Klinsmann rules out England switch

Los Angeles (AFP) – Jurgen Klinsmann has ruled out a move for the vacant England manager’s job, saying Wednesday he remained firmly focused on the United States’ upcoming World Cup qualification campaign.

The US coach has been named in several reports as a potential candidate to succeed Sam Allardyce, who was ousted as England boss on Tuesday after just 67 days.

But Klinsmann moved swiftly to quash speculation on Wednesday, stating on Twitter that reports linking him to the England position were untrue.

“No truth to the rumors regarding England,” Klinsmann wrote on Twitter.

The German 1990 World Cup winning striker added he was busy planning for the USA’s crunch World Cup qualifier against Mexico in Columbus in November.

“Our entire focus is on November 11 when Columbus will rock,” added Klinsmann, who was also believed to be a potential candidate when Allardyce was first appointed in July after England’s Euro 2016 debacle.

Allardyce’s England reign came to an end after he was caught talking with undercover Daily Telegraph reporters posing as Far East businessmen. 

The 61-year-old was secretly filmed giving advice on how to circumnavigate transfer rules, criticised the FA’s decision to rebuild Wembley and mocked his England predecessor Roy Hodgson.
