Jurgen relishing return

Posted on 9 October 2002  - 12:00

Tottenham Hotspur (Spurs) Football Club is located in North London. The club is also known as Spurs. Tottenham's home ground is White Hart Lane. The club motto is Audere est Facere (To dare is to do).

Jurgen Klinsmann admits he cannot wait to grace the turf at White Hart Lane again next week.

The German legend returns for the Tottenham Tribute Match against American outfit DC United on Thursday October 17.

Jurgen will forever hold a place in Spurs fans hearts after his two spells at the club.

He bagged 29 goals in a wonderful first season in 1994-95 before returning in different circumstances in 1997-1998, when he eventually helped the side avoid relegation with a four-goal salvo at Wimbledon.

He actually ended his league football at the Lane at the end of that second spell with a wonderful goal against Southampton on May 10, 1998. He then retired after the 1998 World Cup.

But now he's back in a match to raise funds for former players.

Jurgen said: "I'm looking forward to it because probably my time at Tottenham was the most emotional and not only successful from a football point of view, but also from the people I met and the friendships that have remained.

"It's a very special club and has very special supporters that gave me wonderful time in my two spells there and it's going to be great to enter the stadium again."

Jurgen describes that first season, 1994-95, as the best in his glittering career.

He recalled: "The way the team welcomed me and took care of me I've never experienced before.

"The team spirit was fantastic and I really felt at home with lads like Gary Mabbutt and Teddy Sheringham looked after me like I'd grown up with them.

"That was very special. That's when you play your best football, when you are comfortable, happy and with a smile on your face - that's what I had in my time at Spurs.

"That's why I had probably the best season in my career in 1994-95. Even though we didn't end up with a trophy, from a football point of view and fun point of view it was my most wonderful season."
