Steffan Freund wants Spurs return

Former German midfielder Steffan Freund has left his post as International Technical Co-ordinator but wants to return to a club he loves.

He played more than 100 games for Spurs, winning the League Cup in 1999 and was assistant boss between 2012-14. In February this year he suggested his future may lie away from Spurs when his contract ended in the summer.

"My tendency goes to taking a new challenge in the summer. Whether in England or in Germany is completely open. There have been some interesting talks. To me the perspective is the most important thing, may it be as a sporting director or a coach."

He has revealed while doing a pundit stint for RedBull Salzburg TV that he has a meeting later this month and hopes to return to Tottenham in some capacity.

"When you play for Tottenham Hotspur for four-and-a-half-years and are in the Hall of Fame, how can you go away without tears? 
"I am sure one day I will come back to the club because I love Tottenham Hotspur and I love the Premier League. I want to work for Tottenham Hotspur again. I have a meeting on the 22nd with Donna Cullen to maybe still be involved."

Just like a player his contract finished on 30 June so he is now unattached. he has been working for German TV on the Bundesliga. He has managed the German U-20 team, U-16 team and Under-17 team, with whom he won a runners-up medal at the 2011 UEFA European U-17 Football Championship and finished in third place at the World Cup in Mexico.

He joined Tottenham as assistant head coach on 11 July 2012 and was appointed International Technical Coordinator on 5 August 2014.
