Former German international striker Jurgen Klinsmann will dust off his boots and play in the SAR for the first time in seven years when he turns out for the Lorenz All Stars at next month's Philips Lighting Hong Kong Football Club International Sevens. Klinsmann, who last played here when he led Tottenham Hotspur to a 7-2 victory over an Eastern-Kitchee select team at the Hong Kong Stadium in May, 1995, will play alongside German World Cup teammates Pierre Littbarski and Uwe Bein, who will return for the annual soccer extravaganza at Sports Road on May 25 and 26. The 37-year-old California-based Klinsmann hung up his boots when he played in a farewell match, featuring a Klinsmann World XV against VfB Stuttgart in April, 1999. That same year he resigned as ambassador for Germany's failed bid to host the 2006 World after a row with the German Football Federation. Four years ago, Klinsmann played in his last World Cup finals in France, scoring three times to help Germany reach the quarter-finals. But fans in Hong Kong will remember him for his brilliant display for Spurs at Hong Kong Stadium, scoring two glorious goals in what was his last appearance for the London side on then British soil. Littbarski, 42, makes a welcome return to the sevens after last making an appearance here in 1999. The three-time World Cup star, who apart from playing for his country in Germany's 1990 victorious World Cup campaign, was also a member of two runner-up finishes in 1982 and 1986. The winger, who is now coach at German Second Division club MSV Duisburg, came back from retirement in 1995 to play for J-League side Brummei Sendai. He finished his career playing in the J-League. Klinsmann, Littbarski and Bein will be competing in the masters tournament. Also returning are former Liverpool favourites John Barnes, Phil Neal, Ray Houghton, Alan Kennedy and Paul Walsh. They will join former top English club players, Clive Walker, Jimmy Quinn, Gary Gillespie and Steve Gibson. Arsenal, the winners of last year's main tournament, will return with another youth team, along with Aston Villa and West Ham United. Matthew Penman, general manager of Philips Lighting Hong Kong, said: 'Last year's tournament was a great success. We hope the tournament will provide inspiration for young footballers and fans and contribute to the local football development.'
