Sign up to Klinsmann's daily World Cup newsletter

Published on: 24 November 2022


Hello, my name is Jürgen and I'm writing a daily email newsletter from Qatar for the BBC during this World Cup.

This is a tournament that really means a lot to me. I won the World Cup in 1990 and one of the best things about doing so has come since my playing career ended - I get recognised by all the people who experienced that same moment with me, even though it was many years ago.

I've realised that the beauty of a huge moment like that is that you share them with millions of other people around the world, and everyone has a different story around it - that is the power of the World Cup.

In Qatar, I am sharing my tournament experience with you, through a daily newsletter with my thoughts and some of the photos I have taken. I do hope you can join me.


Jürgen Klinsmann scored 47 goals for Germany in his 108 appearances, winning the World Cup at Italia '90. His total of 11 World Cup goals puts him joint 6th in the overall top scorers list. Klinsmann scored over 280 career goals while representing Stuttgart, Inter Milan, Tottenham and Bayern Munich.

He managed Germany to the semi-finals of the 2006 World Cup and was head coach of the United States at the 2014 tournament in Brazil. He was speaking to BBC Sport's Chris Bevan.
