Clint Dempsey is a great player but a poor role model as USMNT captain

In three years, Bradley will be 30, and at the height of his powers. He’s a born leader – son of a coach, of course, but it goes beyond that. When Bradley talks, people listen.

Unlike Dempsey, Bradley captains his club team. He’s not just the best player for the US; he’s the most revered player. The engine.

This is a golden opportunity for a switch. The Gold Cup is the perfect point for a transition, especially now, especially considering Dempsey’s latest act, his lack of repentance, and his clear history.

Clint Dempsey is a great player. He’s a lousy leader. His actions damaged his club and his country, not to mention himself. It’s time for US Soccer to move on to a man more worthy of its captaincy.
