If this shirt doesn’t make you want to slide on the floor in celebration, nothing else will.

The 1994/95 Spurs away shirt is synonymous with Jürgen Klinsmann and his self-deprecating diving celebration, arguably one of the most famous celebrations of the 90s. This shirt has so much to offer outside of the story to, with its memorable purple colourway and a strong Umbro pattern typical of the brand at the time.

Condition: BNWT - This shirt is in superb condition, with the original tags still secured. There are no pulls and the official name and numbers are in top condition also.

Condition details: This shirt might as well be a year or two old rather than 20 years old! Everything is in good knick here, with all the colours looking bright and the feel of the shirt being as good as it gets.

Best of all are the names and numbers on the back, which again look as good as new. You’d be hard pre

Things to look out for: 

The story of Jürgen Klinsmann at Tottenham is a great one.

Like many arrivals in the English game, Klinsmann was already on the backfoot thanks to the media. Not only was the Germany part of the side that knocked England out of the 1990 World Cup, but he’d also earnt a reputation as something of a diver. When Spurs snapped up the striker for £2 million in the summer of 1994, there was already a mountain to climb.

And climb that mountain he did.

English football didn’t have to wait long to see what would transpire over the coming season, as Klinsmann notched a clinical header on his debut. The celebration he chose would go down in folklore. By diving on the floor in reference to his reputation, and subsequently owning the criticism he was facing, Klinsmann immediately earnt a place in the hearts of Spurs fans and much of the wider footballing community.

The 94/95 proved to be a fantastic one for Jurgen Klinsmann on a personal note, as he plundered his way to 30 goals in all competition and the coveted personal accolade of Football Writers’ Association Footballer of the Year.

With all this background, the 1994 Spurs shirt has earned its place in the club’s history of kits. The pattern which cuts off diagonally across the chest gives the overall shirt a bit of a Monaco aesthetic, and the two-tone purple colourways adds further doses of continental class. Umbro were dominant during this period, and alongside adidas they typified what was so good about shirts in the era.

The iconic Holsten sponsor, perhaps the greatest Tottenham sponsor there’s ever been, sits neatly in the middle, and the Spurs crest is housed within a huge navy shield; one of several variations seen during the 90s.

And of course, we shouldn’t forget about the typeface. The gloriously chunky numbers of the back could only be a product of 90s Umbro, and it stands tall as a relic of the time before the Premier League rolled out a standardised font across all teams. For all the merits of the standardised approach, it’s hard not to pine for the days when clubs and manufacturers were free to do their own thing, like Umbro and Spurs here.

One of their shining lights of 90s football was the Tottenham Hotspur away shirt with Holsten sponsor.  Think Jurgen, Barmby, Teddy Sheringham.

Quote about the shirt:

As one of [Darren] Anderton’s deceptive, drifting crosses floated into the goalmouth, he took one pace forward, two steps back and so completely fooled [Des] Walker that he appeared to score with a free header. It was nothing of the kind. Klinsmann put a lot of thought into his first English goal. - David Lacey, Writer for The Guardian
