To begin with, Jürgen Klinsmann began playing football at the age of eight, and moved through many positions, including goalkeeper. The young boy was particularly talented, and made his professional debut in the Stuttgarter Kickers jersey in 1981 in the German second division, aged only 17 years of age. In 1984, Stuttgart were promoted to the first division.

In addition to games for Stuttgart and then Bayern Munich in Germany, Klinsmann then played in many European countries, for AS Monaco in France, Inter Milan and Sampdoria in Italy and twice for Tottenham Hotspur in England. Klinsmann decided to retire while playing for Tottenham Hotspur in the summer 1998, after the World Cup.

Moreover, Klinsmann had an eventful career representing national football team – he made his debut playing for Germany in 1987. He played in the 1988 Summer Olympics, where Germany took bronze, won the World Cup with Germany in 1990, then in the European Championships in 1992, when Germany reached the finals. Klinsmann was also named the tournament’s best player in 1996, when Germany became the European champions. He also participated in the World Cups of 1994 and ‘98 as a player.

Concerning his career as a coach, in 2004 Jürgen Klinsmann signed a two-year contract as Germany’s new national team coach, after Rudi Völler resigned when Germany did not come through the group stages of Euro 2004. Germany organized the World Cup in 2006, and was directly qualified as the host nation. Klinsmann replaced several older players and took young players to the World Cup such as Bastian Schweinsteiger (21 years old), Per Mertesacker (21 years old) and Lukas Podolski (21 years old). Germany lost the semi-final 0-2 against Italy, but won the third place final 3-1 against Portugal. Germany was the highest scoring team with 14 goals in the tournament. Klinsmann did not prolong his contract after the championship and his assistant, Joachim Löw took over.

Klinsmann took over from Ottmar Hitzfeld as coach of Bayern Munich in the summer of 2008. In 2009, when five games of the Bundesliga remained in the season, he was fired as coach, as Bayern was then third in the league. In the middle of 2011, he was hired as the coach of the USA team, which won the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2013, and then won its qualifying group for the 2014 World Cup. At the end of 2013, Klinsmann extended his contract with the national team until 2018, but was fired in late 2016 after early losses in qualifying for the 2018 World Cup.

Finally, in the personal life of former football player and coach, Jurgen Klinsmann has been married to Debbie Chin since 1995, and they have two children, and reside in Huntington Beach, California, USA.
