New Coach For U.S. Men’s Soccer

Friday, July 29th, 2011

Does the name Juergen Klinsmann ring a bell, 24 hour sports fans? Those who keep up with the very latest sports results have probably heard his name recently as he has been named the replacement for coach Bob Bradley. The U.S. Men’s Soccer team needed a new coach and Klinsmann had nearly been hired twice before for that very job, once after the 2006 World Cup and more recently, last year shortly before Bradley was given a contract extension.

Klinsmann is expected to really come in and shake things up for the Men’s National Team, which might be exactly what the doctor ordered. The team’s progress has seemed sluggish of late, and while there were previously concerns about the extent to which Klinsmann might look to control the U.S. program, this might be the very medicine needed to get the team in winning shape. Certainly Klinsman has a World Cup record to boast of, including eleven goals in three World Cups, tying him at sixth on the all-time scoring list.
