Jurgen Klinsmann Agrees Four-Year Contract Extension to USMNT Head Coach Job

jurgen klinsmann1 Jurgen Klinsmann Agrees Four Year Contract Extension to USMNT Head Coach Job

Jurgen Klinsmann has signed a four-year extension to his contract as coach of the US Men’s National Team.

It’s a wise decision by the US Soccer Federation to extend Klinsmann’s contract given that there were reports that Switzerland was interested in hiring Klinsmann to coach their national team.

“I am very fortunate to continue the work we started more than two and half years ago,” said Klinsmann. “It’s exciting to see the progress we have made, and we continue to make improvements on all fronts. The role of Technical Director is a huge challenge and also a huge opportunity as we look to keep connecting the dots to the Youth National Teams, Coaching Education, the Development Academy and the grassroots efforts in this country. These are fascinating topics and I am excited work with so many talented people and hear fresh ideas. For sure it means more work, but also many more fulfilling opportunities.”

The contract renewal will keep Klinsmann under contract with US Soccer through 2018.

The US Men’s National Team has been drawn against Germany, Ghana and Portugal during World Cup 2014 to be played in Brazil this June.
