Former German striker Jurgen Klinsmann has been named the new USA international team coach. After Bob Bradley was relieved of his duties on Thursday, the US moved quickly to fill the post and Klinsmann was automatically tipped as favourite to take up the position.

Bob Bradley had been in charge of the national team since January 2007, but the US has now turned to Klinsmann is hope of progessing the national  soccer team.

 Klinsmann’s first match in charge of the U.S. National Team will be against Mexico on August 10 in Philadelphia, “We are excited to have Jürgen as the head coach of our Men’s National Team,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati.

“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.”  

Speaking about his new post, the former Germany striker added; “I am proud and honoured to be named the head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team,” said Klinsmann.

“I would like to thank the U.S. Soccer Federation for the opportunity, and I’m excited about the challenge ahead. I am looking forward to bringing the team together for our upcoming match against Mexico and starting on the road toward qualifying for the 2014 FIFA World Cup.” Best Blogger Tips
