Calling Bullshit On The Latest England Manager Rumours

Calling Bullshit On The Latest England Manager Rumours
By Conor O'Leary Updated

It's being widely reported in the Saturday morning newspapers that the English FA are already in talks with Jurgen Klinsmann to be the next unfortunate soul to lead England's failure at a major tournament.

The German has helped the USA to some very good results in his five-year tenure, which restored some of his reputation after stints as manager of Germany and Bayern Munich.

Klinsmann is highly rated in England after his playing days with Spurs, and would represent a coup for the FA, and should be a strong candidate. He is currently a best priced 7/2 favourite to get the job.

But he is not already in talks with the FA, or at least - if he is, the FA are breaching FIFA rules - because multiple US sources have confirmed that there has been no approach from the FA to US Soccer for permission to talk to Klinsmann:

Klinsmann most recently took the US to the semi-finals of the Copa America, and is under contract until after the World Cup in 2018.
