Jurgen Klinsmann Biography
Jrgen Klinsmann was born July 30, 1964 in Gppingen and is a Germa football manager and former player who is currently the coach of the United States men's national team. As a player, Klinsmann played for several prominent clubs in Europe and was part of the West German team that won the 1990 FIFA World Cup and the German one that won the 1996 UEFA European Championship. One of Germany's premier strikers during the 1990s, Klinsmann scored in all six major international tournaments he participated in, from Euro 1988 to 1998 World Cup.
He managed the German national team to a third-place finish in the 2006 World Cup. On 12 July 2006, Klinsmann officially announced that he would step down as Germany's coach after two years in charge and be replaced by assistant coach Joachim Lw. He took over as coach of Bayern Munich in July 2008, when Ottmar Hitzfeld stepped down to take over as the head coach of the Swiss National Team. On 27 April 2009 he was released early, even though he had won five of the previous seven league games and was only three points behind league leader VfL Wolfsburg. In the jointly initiated reforms at Bayern it emerged there was a severe clash of opinions between coach and club management. On 29 July 2011, the US Soccer Federation, named Klinsmann the coach of the USMNT. Aside of his professional football life, he earned his diploma as a baker in 1984, runs a Children Charity foundation in four countries and is a certified Helicopter Pilot. In 2012, Klinsmann coached the U.S. to their best winning percentage in a calendar year in history.
In 1995 Klinsmann and some of his close friends founded the children charity foundation Agapedia which stems from the Greek language and translates to Love for Children. As of today Agapedia runs four projects in Germany, Bulgaria, Moldova and Romania. In 1997 Klinsmann, acting as the captain of the German National Team, visited the Holocaust memorial place Yad Vashem in Israel alongside his coach Berti Vogts. This visit was televised around the globe and drew worldwide attention. Klinsmann is also a board member of the German Initiative Fr die Zukunft lernen which means Learning for the future and supports the education of young people about the holocaust. In May 1999, Klinsmann donated all the proceeds from his farewell game (more than $1 million) to different children charity organizations. The game was a sell-out with 54,000 fans in Stuttgarts Mercedes-Benz Arena. Famous personalities such as Bryan Adams, Boris Becker and many others contributed to this event
