Jonathan's started playing as a forward for a few youth teams before making the transition to goalkeeper following his move to the Bayern Munich youth academy as his father, Jurgen Klinsmann, took the reigns as head coach of the German giants in 2008.
Upon his return to California, he would enter the US Soccer Development Academy and play for teams such as Pateadores FC and Irvine Strikers FC.
After graduating from high school, Klinsmann headed to the University of California to play in goal for the Golden Bears.
Having spent a great deal of time Europe training with the likes of VfB Stuttgart, West Ham United, and Everton, the netminder was invited for a 10-day tryout with Hertha Berlin. Even before the end of the tryout, he would signed his first professional contract with the capital team.
Klinsmann would go on to make his debut for Hertha Berlin in the Europa League in December 2017 as they played out a 1-1 tie with Ostersunds. He would save a penalty in the game.
Holding dual US and German citizenship, Klinsmann has so far appeared for the United States at the youth level.
He was included in the team that won the 2017 CONCACAF U-20 Championship, starting all but one game. This tournament also served as the qualifer for the FIFA U-20 World Cup.
Klinsmann would remain the number one as the US headed to the 2017 U-20 World Cup in South Korea, where they would make it to the quarterfinals.
