Klose became famous after the World championship of 2002. His career is completely linked to Germany - he never played for professional foreign clubs. Such European grandees as the Spanish "Barcelona" and Italian "Juventus" were eager to see him their own player, but "Bavaria" nevertheless managed to hold the player in the country what cost to the club 15 m euro.
