Jurgen Klinsmann insists he is happy in his current role as United States head coach despite speculation that the he could take over as Tottenham manager should Harry Redknapp depart for England.

Redknapp is tipped to be the next England manager following Fabio Capello's shock resignation. Although Redknapp admits it would be hard to leave a club where he has achieved so much, the 64-year-old has declared his interest in taking on the national side, conceding last week that the role would be the "ultimate" for any English manager.

United States coach Klinsmann, a fan favourite from two playing spells at Spurs, has been mentioned as a possible successor but he played down those rumours. He said: "I'm very happy in my role as USA manager and busy preparing for the start of World Cup qualifying this summer."
