Jürgen Klinsmann

Jürgen Klinsmann coached the German national soccer team in the lead-up and during the 2006 World Cup. Since then he has coached Bayern Munich and now manages the US national soccer team.

Klinsmann, born in 1964, was a very successful striker playing in the top leagues in Germany, Italy and the UK in the 1980s and 90s, before moving to the United States. As a player, Klinsmann won both the 1990 World Cup with West Germany and then Euro 96 for a reunified German national team. Not always known for his clean first touch, he earned the German nickname "Flipper," after the paddles on a pinball machine. DW's recent content on Klinsmann or the US men's national soccer team is collated on this page.
