Report: Jurgen Klinsmann Will Be Named Next U.S. Men’s Soccer Coach (UPDATE: It’s Officially Official)
UPDATE: Officially a done deal. Klinsmann's talking about how he's excited for the opportunity and everything. How will he fare? Well, we're about to find out.
Original post below.
What's been widely rumored appears to be reality: citing "a reliable source in the U.S. soccer community," Michael Lewis of Big Apple Soccer reports that Jurgen Klinsmann, former coach of the German national team, will take over U.S. men's soccer. Klinsmann led Germany to the World Cup semifinals in 2006, a credential likely meaning his hiring will be widely welcomed by U.S. backers. However, he followed his national team stint with a rocky tenure as manager of German club Bayern Munich, leading some to believe his hiring wouldn't be the coup many seem to think it is. Either way, if this report is correct, there's nothing to be done either way but hope Klinsmann can get the Americans to overachieve - and that his ideas for reforming the U.S.' player development system are on the money.
