In modern football stars often come through the academies of the top clubs or at the very least a local professional club. However, professional football came to Miroslav Klose at a relatively late age in terms of the modern game. At the age of 20, Klose was playing for FC 08 Homberg in the German fifth division whilst he also worked as a builder and a bricklayer before his career really took off. Klose eventually made his Bundesliga debut for FC Kaiserslauten in and would go on to have a stellar career in Germany and Italy.
