Jonathan Klinsmann, son of Jurgen, commits to college… and he’s a goalkeeper


Fresh off a run to the Elite Eight, the University of California men’s soccer team has added a familiar last name to its program.

Though this Klinsmann’s about stopping shots, not banging them home.

Yep, goalkeeper Jonathan Klinsmann (’15),  son of United States men’s national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann, has committed to his college.

Jonathan played for the USMNT U-15 boys team as well as the Irvine Strikers on his way to Berkeley. It’s a good place for keepers to grow, as evidenced by the careers of Stefan Frei and Erik Kronberg amongst others.
