Jürgen Klinsmann returns to Louis II

Jürgen Klinsmann returns to Louis II
Striker for AS Monaco for two seasons, Jürgen Klinsmann had never returned to le Rocher since his transfer to Tottenham in 1994. It is with undisguised pleasure that the 1990 World Champion returned to the Stade Louis-II on Saturday during the preparation match against Sampdoria.

Jürgen Klinsmann has left a good memory on le Rocher, as much for his athletic abilities as his quality as a human. Scorer of 29 goals in 60 games in the red and white jersey from 1992 to 1994, the German international striker was one of the key actors of the European epic that saw AS Monaco reach the semi-finals of the Champions League for the first time in the 1993-1994 season (the Red and White lost to AC Milan, future winner over FC Barcelona in the final).

Jürgen Klinsmann salutes Daniele Massaro before the semifinal of C1 played in a single match at San Siro in 1994 (3-0 victory of the Milanese).

World Champion 1990 with the FRG, then a 1996 European Champion with Germany (their first post-reunification title), Jürgen Klinsmann later became a coach after a career of 17 seasons as a player! Appointed coach of the Mannschaft in 2004, he led the German team to the semifinals of the 2006 World Cup, of which they were host, before giving way to his assistant at the time, a certain Joachim Löw, who is still at the post thirteen years later! Klinsmann managed Bayern Munich in 2008-2009, before the native of Göppingen crossed the Atlantic to become US coach from 2011 to 2016.

After leading Germany and Bayern Munich, Jürgen Klinsmann led the US National Team for five years (2011-2016).

Since Jürgen Klinsmann had been asked by the LFP to present the Coupe de la Ligue trophy in Bordeaux on the occasion of the PSG – AS Monaco final on March 31, 2018, he never had the opportunity to return to the Stade Louis-II since his departure for England and Tottenham in 1994. Upon this return, the German legend did not leave empty-handed, since the Vice President of AS Monaco, Oleg Petrov, gave him a jersey with his name and number 7.
