Looks like US Soccer Federation president Sunil Gulati may be courting former German star/coach Juergen Klinsmann again. An ESPN.com report said they met in LA yesterday. You may remember Klinsmann and the US talked before Bob Bradley was hired, but the talks dragged on too long and it never worked out. This time, it may be Bradley who gets strung along while the courtship of Klinsmann continues.
Klinsmann lives in Southern California, which would make the commute to the Home Depot Center training site very easy. His resume is impressive: World Class Player and World Cup coach. He is innovative and personable. And, he has lived in the United States long enough to understand the American sports system.
But can the USSF afford him? And would he really do a better job than Bradley? Is the problem more the lack of talent than the coach? What do you think????
