On This Day In Spurs History: 20th August
1994 – On this day in 1994, Jurgen Klinsmann made his debut for Spurs and Sheffield Wednesday as part of Ossie Ardiles’ ‘famous five’. Tottenham went two up in the first half with goals from Sheringham and Anderton, before the home side pulled it back to 2-2. Spurs then reestablished their lead with goals from Barmby and of course, one from Klinsmann, who celebrated by mocking his own reputation for diving. Wednesday pulled another back, but Spurs eventually won the game 4-3.
Spurs Quote Of The Day
“At the end of my 1994-95 season at Tottenham Hotspur, I got many letters and calls from teachers. They told me that the German language was becoming increasingly popular at schools. That, I think, is even better than successes on the pitch.”
