Klinsmann hired as USMNT coach

Jürgen Klinsmann will bring a new style of soccer to the United States team.

Former German national team coach Jürgen Klinsmann has been hired to be the new men’s soccer coach for the United States of America. Bob Bradley was fired Thursday, and U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati worked quickly to find Bradley’s replacement. Klinsmann isn’t an unfamiliar name, as he was almost the US coach twice, first after the 2006 FIFA World Cup in Germany, and secondly last year. Klinsmann previously coached the German national team, where he also played at, and Bundesliga giant Bayern Munich. His first opportunity to prove himself is on August 10th, when the USA plays Mexico in a friendly in what is a rematch of the Gold Cup final, which Mexico won 4-2.

    Love this hire! I was screaming for JK 5 years ago, but the timing wasn’t right for him then. Looks like the stars aligned for him and the USMNT.

    I am extremely excited about Klinsmann!

  4. Klinsmann did amazing things with the German National team, inspite of the threats to fire him prior to the 2006 World Cup. I’m sure we’ll get the best that Klinsmann has, plus a little extra to stick in to his homeland (evening though he is arguably more American now from living here for 20 plus years). Cheers!

    • For sure. Klinsmann was great with the German National Team, I can’t wait to see how he does in the next few years and eventually the World Cup. Thanks for commenting, I’ll check out your site now.
