Klinsmann, the current US national team boss, has been linked with taking Redknapp's place with the Englishman favourite to be named England manager ahead of the European Championship.

But the 47-year-old was quoted in The Sun as saying: "It's just a wonderful club, but I am extremely proud and privileged to be US national team coach.

"Hopefully we will have, after qualification, a great World Cup in Brazil. Then, in soccer, just like in any other environment, you never know what will happen."
