4/ Jurgen Klinsmann

When Klinsmann joined Tottenham Hotspur in 1994, his reputation for pursuing coral reefs during games soured his welcome – fans hated Klinsmann’s diving. The striker’s self-deprecating humour won over the Spurs’ faithful, however, as he celebrated his debut goal with a theatrical leap to the ground.

The Spurs favourite went onto win the 1995 Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year award after scoring 30 goals in all competitions. Despite moving to Bayern Munich the following season, Klinsmann secured a permanent home in London’s Madame Tussauds Museum, immortalised in wax as a Spurs legend.
