It is one of the transfer stories in which opinions about details and how they come about still diverge.
Jürgen Klinsmann once became the record champion when he switched to FC Bayern actually got a regular place guarantee?
A process that would then be roughly comparable to the Alexander Nübel case – and that is precisely why it has recently taken on new explosiveness.
But during the goalkeeper of FC Schalke 04 in the course of his move to Munich in the summer after SPORT1-Information in writing a minimum number of games has been guaranteed, the guarantee of a permanent place in Munich according to Klinsmann’s environment should never have been an issue.
How SPORT1 learned from today’s circle of coaches from Hertha BSC, but there was a contractual peculiarity when Klinsmann moved from VfB Stuttgart to Inter Milan in 1989.
Klinsmann and his move to Inter
Specifically: The then only 25-year-old striker, at whose time city rival AC Milan was also very interested, had a clause written into his contract that assured him that he would not sit in the stands at the Inters games for reasons of foreigners regulation have to.
The background to this was the foreigners regulations in European football, which was only brought down by the Bosman judgment years later, according to which one club alone was allowed to deploy three foreign players. And the resulting fear that Klinsmann will only be bought so that he doesn’t switch to the competition.
Worth mentioning: At the time of the Klinsmann change, which ultimately remained in Italy until 1992, two other German internationals were under contract with Inter: Lothar Matthäus and Andreas Brehme.
The coach was also Giovanni Trapattoni – whom Klinsmann was to experience again years later, despite some controversy over offensive football.

Because: When the German striker came to Bayern in 1995 after further positions at AS Monaco and Tottenham Hotspur, his sporting manager was again called “Trap”.
Whether it was a guaranteed place or not, Klinsmann always ended up among the Italians in the starting eleven in Munich.
