Tottenham signing Jurgen Klinsmann pictured reading The Times newspaper shortly after joining the club in 1994. London, England. Jurgen Klinsmann only spent one season at Tottenham after signing from Monaco in the summer of 1994 – but it’s a season few fans will ever forget. Klinsmann was already 30 when he moved to White Hart Lane, but make no mistake about it, he was a huge signing for both Spurs and the Premier League. Thirty goals followed in his debut season in north London, and though he departed at the end of it, his success had a genuinely seismic effect on English football. He was a true superstar. And an absolute bargain.
