U.S. Men’s Soccer hires new coach


Jürgen Klinsmann was named the U.S. Men’s Soccer coach, today, a day after Bob Bradley was fired. He is a former German national team player and coach. He helped team Germany win the World Cup in 1990 as a player. He also got the German team to third place in the 2006 World Cup as a coach. He will be introduced at a news conference in NYC on Monday, and his coaching debut will be on Aug 10 against Mexico in Philadelphia.

“We are excited to have Jürgen as the head coach of our Men’s National Team,” U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati said in a news release. “He is a highly accomplished player and coach with the experience and knowledge to advance the program. Jürgen has had success in many different areas of the game and we look forward to the leadership he will provide on and off the field.” – espn
