The word is out that Jurgen Klinsmann who revolutionized Germany’s style of play is leaving Germany and assistant coach Joachim Loew is taking over. Loew is the closest coach Germany could get if they want to continue their fast attacking style Jurgen put in place. And to reinforce the decision Loew is promised to continue with Klinsmann’s style and says: That’s the only way we can achieve a lasting place among the very best in the world.
Jurgen on the other hand says he is tired and exhausted, and thanked everyone for his two year stint with the team. He says that the main reason of leaving the German national team is due to his family and would like to spend more time with them. He doesn’t have any immediate plans and would like to tackle on his next move after a six month vacation.
Since Jurgen’s family is leaving in southern California, coaching the USA squad seems a logical choice for him. Bruce’s future with team USA will remain until a replacement has been identified.
Would Jurgen take US job?
Why not? He was very successful with Germany and all indication says this man is confident and is unfazed with the US team’s poor performance in the recent World Cup. If would make it more attractive to him as he can build US into a powerhouse team that could reach greater heights in the years to come and at the same time makes his job closer to his family.
This is a win-win situation for Jurgen and most likely he will take the job.
