Rumours of Jurgen Klinsmann Taking Over at Southampton Gets Mixed Reaction

German legend Jurgen Klinsmann has emerged as a shock target to take over as the new manager of Southampton, and the rumours have drawn a mixed reaction from supporters.

Former Tottenham and Bayern Munich striker Klinsmann is currently head coach of the USA international side, and led them to the semi-finals of this year’s Copa America, before they were soundly beaten 4-0 by Argentina.

But despite that disappointing defeat, it appears the Saints have their eye on the 51-year-old as they look for someone to replace Ronald Koeman, who recently departed the South Coast club for Everton.

Reports emerged this morning, both in the UK and in America, suggesting Klinsmann is in the driving seat to take over at St. Mary’s, and it’s fair to say the initial reaction from supporters has been mixed:

He was undoubtedly a legendary and iconic figure as a player, but Klinsmann’s track record as a coach is definitely patchy at best.

How do you think he’d fare in the Premier League? And would he be the right man to replace Koeman at Southampton?
