Jurgen Klinsmann snubs Sunderland

by Jack Kitson / 27 June 2017, 16:03

Sunderland have suffered another crushing pie to the face as Jurgen Klinsmann becomes the latest manager to reject the Championship club.

The likes of Derek McInnes, Nigel Pearson, Garry Monk and Chris Wilder have already turned the Black Cats down, and now it's the turn of Klinsmann, who said on Facebook that there's "no truth" in reports linking him to the vacancy, which has been open for over five weeks.

Over the weekend Klinsmann, a former boss of the United States, Bayern Munich and Germany, was propelled into the upper echelons of the market after his odds were slashed from 40/1 to just 4/1.

The German has been out of work for seven months since losing his job with the US national team back in November, and it appears that he's not interested in returning to the dugout in the North East of England, however he does remain as short as 5/1 (Sky Bet) in the betting.

Klinsmann's compatriot, Jens Keller, also remains in the frame at 3/1, as does Preston boss Simon Grayson who is still the odds-on favourite with all bookmakers.

Nothing is likely to happen on the manager front until Sunderland are taken over, with a German consortium currently locked in talks with the club's owner Ellis Short.

Ryan Giggs at 33/1 anyone?

No, I didn't think so.
