Many outstanding football players find that at some point in their soccer career, they make the transition from player to manager – as we have seen with the previous few articles we have published. Therefore, within this post we are going to look into the established career of Jurgen Klinsmann and how he coped with making the swap from the pitch to the side lines. We also look into his performance both as manager and player along with the number of club and individual awards he has acquired over the years.
Establishing His Soccer Career
Born in Goppingen 1964, Jurgen started his soccer career at only eight years old. This is where he started playing for TB Gingen, but after six months with the team he managed to score an outstanding 16 goals in a single match. He only played with TB Gingen for 2 years before he transferred to SC Geislingen at age 10. After four years with the squad his family relocated to Stuttgart but Jurgen continued playing for the team u
Bayern Munich is a very strong soccer team in the Bundesliga and has lifted the trophy 28 times which is very impressive. Most recently they have won the Bundesliga champions title six consecutive times and this makes them such a popular squad to watch and through this they have earnt a strong following.

Along with this we will also acknowledge notable away and third jerseys which have been a hit with supporters.
History of the Home Colour Scheme
When the Bayern Munich football club was first established, under the constitution their colours were named as white and blue. However, they actually played in white tops and black bottoms up until they joined the MSC in 1905. And from then on the MSC stated that the players would have

Established in 1963, the Bundesliga league is the top-flight soccer tournament which takes place in Germany. The founding members of this were Werder Bremen, Schalke 04, FC Koln, Hertha BSC, Hamburger SV, Eintracht Frankfurt and VfB Stuttgart. Also, they have most recently welcomed RB Leipzig back in 2016.

Fixtures and Notable Dates
22nd December 2017.
As the January transfer window is just around the corner, clubs all over Europe will be discussing their plans to bring in the targets they have identified.
Historically, January has been a time period where you might find a bargain in the market, due to the player forcing his way out of the club, or because their contract is expiring in six months' time.
With that being said, here are the three best free transfers available in Europe right now:
Mesut Ã–zil Arsenal
The German's next club, should he leave Arsenal, will realise that they have secured one of the biggest bargains of the last decade.
It has been surprising to see the Gunners allow Mesut Ã–zil to run down his contract with no contingency plan involved, and so there is no surprise to see a number of teams interested in signing the World Cup winner when his contract expires next June.
Ã–zil is in th

When James Rodriguez joined Real Madrid in the summer of 2014, he seemed to have the football world at his feet.
Fresh off the back of a stellar World Cup campaign, carrying Colombia to the quarter-finals and finishing as the tournament's top scorer along the way, his £63 million move to the Bernabeu appeared to crown him as the new prince of European football; Lionel Messi and new team-mate Cristiano Ronaldo still contested the throne, but Rodriguez was surely the heir apparent.
But three years on, the 26-year-old's Real Madrid tenure cannot

Although leaving Olympique Lyonnais would've been a tough call to make after spending 10 years at the club, Corentin Tolisso knew the time was right to embark on the next chapter in his career
For Tolisso, who was close to joining Napoli a year ago, his decision to stay at Les Gones for another season was entirely vindicated, for he played a starring role for OL in a season where they reached the semi finals of the Europa League and finished fourth in Ligue 1. In addition, his consistently excellent performances were certainly crucial towards him earning a dream move to Bayern Munich.
"A year ago, all the conditions weren't right. I wasn't ready to leave and I still wanted to play for Olympique Lyonnais. This year, I'm ready to take the big step. I have had a complete season. My individual

With just one year remaining on his contract and high on the wish list of several of Europe's biggest clubs, Alexis SÃ¡nchez is unlikely to still be an Arsenal player by the start of the 2017-18 season.
The former Barcelona forward was the Gunners' outstanding performer last season, netting 24 Premier League goals and returning a career high total of 30 in 51 all-competitions games, including a crucial strike in the North London side's FA Cup final victory over champions Chelsea.
SÃ¡nchez was the shining light in an otherwise disappointing season for Arsenal which saw them fail to qualify for the Champions League for the first time in two decades. Currently on international duty with Chile at the Confederations Cup in Russia, the 28-year-old attacker is set to resolve his future upon his return, with all signs pointing towards an exit from the Emirates Stadium.
