Jurgen Klinsmann feels Tottenham fans' pain but insists Mauricio Pochettino can turn the club around

Ahead of United States' game at Craven Cottage, their coach Jurgen Klinsmann explains why the Spurs coach should be given time to revive his old club

Jürgen Klinsmann was back at White Hart Lane, sympathising with the Spurs fans as they lost to Stoke, and expressing his belief that the "tremendous, talented" coach Mauricio Pochettino will get things right if given time. Fluent in four languages, Klinsmann can speak sense in all of them.

The engaging German, and lord of the Lane following his vibrant work there in the 1994-95 season, is back in London preparing his United States team to face José Pékerman's Colombia in a friendly at Craven Cottage on Friday night. On Monday, Klinsmann could be found at his hotel near Hyde Park, sitting in a library dominated by a portrait of Winston Churchill and surrounded by photographs of Virginia Woolf, Sir John Betjeman and Agatha Christie.

It was a typically urbane setting to meet the articulate Klinsmann, just turned 50 but still looking as sleek and athletic as when he scored on his Spurs debut against Sheffield Wednesday and gently mocked the English image of him by doing a dive in celebration. He was voted Footballer of the Year, was immortalised at Madame Tussauds, and Spurs fans still wax lyrical about his 29 goals that season. No wonder he was welcomed back warmly.

"Besides the result, I had a good time,"
Klinsmann reflected. "It was just a nice feeling to be back at Tottenham. I watch the games in the US. Last week, I watched Harry Kane's celebration [after scoring against Aston Villa]. I almost tweeted it out! I'm here and there in touch with Daniel Levy and Gary Mabbutt. I saw Ossie Ardiles at the game."

He understood the fans' frustration against Stoke. "The team means so much to them. No matter where you go you always find Spurs fans. If a game doesn't go well then it's normal that the crowd has every right to be a bit pessimistic. I actually thought the crowd tried to give positive energy to give them a push. The 2-1 came and I had the feel that the equaliser would be right there.” It did not arrive, though, and defeat brought plenty of criticism spilling towards Pochettino.

"I wish Mauricio only the best," Klinsmann continued. "He's a tremendous, talented coach. He's shown that already. He's got a smart brain. In order for Mauricio to put his stamp on Spurs he needs time. He also needs a couple of transfer windows to build the team he has in mind, to put the puzzle together that he envisions.

"Unfortunately, professional football is driven by short-term results and high media expectations and high fan expectations and that often drives clubs to make very quick decisions because they've lost five games in a row."

Spurs are not in that predicament, and would be wise to heed the supportive words for Pochettino from one of their most beloved players, one of the most noble nomads ever in football.

Arsene's lasting lessons

After starting out in Stuttgart, Klinsmann headed abroad, firstly to Inter Milan in 1989. "In my time the biggest league was Italy, all the big shots came to Italy: Maradona, Careca, Gullit, Van Basten, Matthäus. We were all driven to go to Italy, that's where the music is played.

"I was lucky that football gave me an opportunity to travel, to go to Italy and learn Italian. I learnt in Italy to take people the way they are, and not the way I wanted them to be, which is more the German approach, that 'it has to be this way'. If you do that in Italy you run up against the wall 100 times a day.

"So after hitting the wall many times I thought I'd better take the Italians the way they are. If they say 'I'm coming in two minutes' it means 'I'm comingin half an hour', then I calculate half an hour for it. And if I make an appointment, and he shows up two days later, he still shows up.

"I was lucky to go to France [in 1992] and work with Arsène Wenger for two years, learn French and understand their way. Every player can only learn so much from his managers, and I was so lucky. I had Arsène Wenger, [Giovanni] Trapattoni, [Franz] Beckenbauer, Ossie Ardiles, Gerry Francis, César Luis Menotti. I had many teachers.

"Wenger was already a legend at Monaco. He's not only the football coach that helps you put the pieces together on the field. He has such a wealth of knowledge off the field that for a player it is like going to the best university in the world, and you have the best professors there, the Harvard or Stanford of it. With Arsène it was always the long-term picture on players. We had a very talented Monaco team, we reached the semi-finals of the Champions League and lost to AC Milan.

"He left players out that I thought needed to play in order for us to have achance. One of the big names was Youri Djorkaeff, at the time a young player [omitted on occasions in previous seasons].

"Arsène said:  'No, he has to learn to live the right life off the field.' Itpaid off. The kid learnt his lesson and a couple of years later won the World Cup with France. Arsène's vision was always long term. Yes, he knew he had to provide results short-term but it was more than that, it was how should this player be in two, four and six years from now? He saw that already, he saw itin Djorkaeff, in [Lilian] Thuram, in [Emmanuel] Petit. Those were my younger team-mates and he told me: 'You've got to guide these guys.' I was already almost 30."

He then arrived in style at Spurs, turning up in a Volkswagen Beetle, immediately making good friends. "Gary Mabbutt, Teddy Sheringham, Colin Calderwood, I had a whole group of guys who showed me 'this is how things work here'. Fish and chips. We go down the street [to a café] and we figure it out. This is how it works in London, the rivalries, the Premier League, life off the field."

America dreams big

Klinsmann was soon on the move again, off to Bayern Munich, then Sampdoria and a brief spell back at the Lane before he settled in the States. "I married an American. I ended up in a nice place in California. I lived in different countries. I'm a whole mixture.

"I never imagined when I was a player that I would become a coach. I was in the US doing the business side of things which went well and Berti Vogts called me to organise a coaching course and I got the Pro Licence. I helped the [LA] Galaxy in 2004 to get the infrastructure off the ground and it was nice. Suddenly Germany called me [offering the coach's job] and I was 'what?' The next day I felt OK.

"I had two years to build something in Germany, the deadline was the first game of the World Cup and I went through tremendous learning curves and a lot of walls. It obviously ended up well [reaching the semi-finals and being feted for his attacking football]."

He stood down, returned to California before Europe beckoned again. "I was actually on my way here to the Premier League [to Liverpool after talks in 2007] but then Bayern Munich called. So I got that year's experience and again hit many walls."

He returned to the States, eventually agreeing to the United States Soccer Federation's persistent request to be national coach in 2011, enjoying being able to raise his family in peace and also working as technical director shaping the development structure.

"I still have that anonymity," Klinsmann said of life in California. "Here and there I get recognised, but it is no comparison to here in Europe. But the game is growing and the locomotive of this growth is the national team."

A strong World Cup helped on and off the field. "We had the second biggest amount of followers in Brazil. The Portuguese were shocked in Manaus that we took over the stadium. We have tremendous support, the 'Outlaws'."

The passionately backed US bowed out after extra-time of the round of 16a gainst Belgium, having survived what Klinsmann termed "the group of death" involving Germany, Portugal and Ghana. "I said before the World Cup, 'We have no shot of winning the World Cup', and Americans got all upset with me because you can't say in America that you can't do something. But I was just being realistic. It will be definitely the goal, to win the World Cup, many years down the road. Next time at the World Cup we set the benchmark at the semi-final.

"Jozy Altidore got injured and we'd have had a far bigger chance to advance against Belgium with Jozy Altidore because he's a vital piece in our team. Then he comes back and struggles at Sunderland, barely gets minutes. Our next step is getting all of our players to understand that it's a 24/7 job, that we have to outwork everybody else because we don't have the talent pool––yet––that other big nations have. "We learnt how to advance out of a group stage. The next stepis learn how to win knockout games at a World Cup. We don't have the mindset yet to win the big games. But it got us a lot of respect. It showed a lot of people that we can compete."

It also got Tim Howard and Clint Dempsey a phone call from President Obama. "It's a great compliment for the players and for the sport but it's also a signal that it's time to do more," he said.

"The Americans have their favourite sports, the big four of American football, baseball, basketball and [ice] hockey but they understand soccer is probably the only game that connects everybody worldwide and connects everybody in a land of immigrants."

Thanks to 100 training centres across the States in areas away from MLS franchises, the USSF spreads the net. There are real prospects breaking through from the back to front line. There is 21-year-old defender DeAndre Yedlin attached to Spurs. "We are super-excited that he's coming over here. Spurs will get a huge talent with great pace, good character, a good kid and wants to learn."

There is 18-year-old midfielder Emerson Hyndman at Fulham. "Emerson is phenomenal. This kid came to our first game after the World Cup, and in our first training session he played like he was always with us. He's barely 18. I said to my coach: 'Are you seeing what I'm seeing?' Everyone was like 'woah'."

There is 18-year-old striker Rubio Rubin at Utrecht, a player also chased by Mexico. "The Mexicans are very aggressive and scout a lot of good kids away from us that grow up in the US, but we are getting better connected.

"We don't identify a lot of those Latino kids yet because they play inorganisations that we are not even aware of. But we now have 80 academies that can filter down a lot of information, educating the coaches or finding kids early."

Whisper it, but there is also a Klinsmann in the system, his son Jonathan. "The boy is goalkeeper of the under-18 national team, doing a very good job."

Talking of family, any decision on his own future after the 2018 World Cup will be taken with his wife, son and daughter in mind. "A major point for us is what is best for the family."

Would he like the Spurs job one day? "I don't know. Right now I see me hopefully doing a good job for the US. You never know what you are going to do five, ten years down the road. Hopefully everything works out and we go full speed to Russia in 2018."

The great nomad had one reservation about life on the road. He is un impressedby the Premier League's proposed expansionism, playing games from Tucson to Tokyo. "There are so many great marketing ideas out there, like the Jaguars played the Dallas Cowboys [at Wembley on Sunday] and it was an absolute thrill for everybody––maybe not for Roy Hodgson because they tear up the field," observed Klinsmann. "For marketing guys it's a thrill. But is it good for developing players who have a crazy schedule?

"If I look at the schedule of Champions League teams right now, I think it's not good for them. You have to cut some dates and give them a breather. The schedule for top players is just completely overloaded. To go flying across the Atlantic or flying to Japan, wherever, for one game is maybe a nice idea, and I understand the business side of it, but from a purely football side of it, if I were a coach now of that team, I don't want to have that."

The world is spinning ever faster, a fact proven on Friday when coaches from Germany and Argentina direct the fortunes of men from the US and Colombia on the banks of the Thames.
