Twenty five years ago, yesterday saw Jurgen Klinsmann score his first Premier League goal for Tottenham Hotspur.

The German was named in Ossie Ardiles’ starting line up for the top flight clash against Sheffield Wednesday.

A floating cross from Darren Anderton found the blonde head of Klinsmann who powered his header past Kevin Pressman in the Hillsborough goal which sparked one of the most famous celebrations in Premier League history.

Klinsmann led his teammates into the infamous dive which the German later revealed was the brainchild of his striking partner Teddy Sheringham (Telegraph).

The Spurs official Twitter account paid tribute to Klinsmann’s 25th anniversary goal which led to Klinsmann replying with a classy message about the North London side.

The 55-year-old wished Mauricio Pochettino and his squad good luck for the season ahead whilst also reflecting on his time at the club.


Those who are old enough to recall Spurs signing Klinsmann will certainly vouch for the excitement that is caused to land one of European football’s top strikers.

Klinsmann was 30 when he arrived at White Hart Lane in a £2million deal from Monaco (Independent).
