Have to respect what Klose has done during his career, especially on the international stage. Still hard to believe he’s the record-holder for the most goals in the World Cup. Yes, that’s somewhat of a slight against him. I think he’s not considered in the upper echelon because a good majority of players in his position, many of whom are retired or retiring, were much more well-rounded players than he is/was. Another thing that goes against him is that his stint at the biggest club in his career wasn’t as prolific even if he did get silverware.
