Jurgen Klinsmann released from US National Team

Posted November 30, 2016

Among the notable achievements for the US men's team during Klinsmann's tenure were winning the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup and advancing to the second round of the World Cup in 2014.

Klinsmann, who also served as the technical director of U.S. Soccer, was hired in July 2011 and finished with a 55-27-16 record. A year later, he led them to the knockout phase of the World Cup in Brazil.

Klinsmann's job was thought to be in jeopardy during the Copa America tournament in June, but the US reached the semifinals.

With the losses to Mexico and Costa Rica so far in qualifying, the US sits in last place of the CONCACAF qualifying table with eight games remaining.

Perhaps a former USMNT coach - Bruce Arena. The U.S. chose to not renew his contract after a disappointing 2006 World Cup during which the USMNT finished in last place in its group and failed to reach the knockout round.

In a statement, the organization said: "We want to thank Juergen for his hard work and commitment during these last five years".

"We remain confident we have quality players to help us advance to Russian Federation 2018", the BBC quoted U.S Soccer president, Sunil Gulati, as saying on Tuesday.

"We need to determine the best way forward to ensure a successful journey to qualify for our eighth consecutive World Cup".

Who will be the next coach of the US men's soccer team? From that point on, Klinsmann and USA soccer fans have never been on the same page.

Jurgen Klinsmann took the reins of the US Men's National Soccer Team five years ago and was shown the door this week. Arena has previously been head coach for the men's team and most recently was head coach of LA Galaxy.

Klinsmann was dismissed from his position on the day prospective England boss Gareth Southgate was formally interviewed for a post that the German was considered for earlier this year.

Another well-respected young coach, Kreis has always been tipped as a future US national team boss.

Klinsmann's tenure with the national team, while marked by success, also had some deflating setbacks, especially in the last 18 months.

Under Klinsmann in 2014, the Americans matched their 2010 World Cup showing by reaching the last 16 at Brazil after Klinsmann left long-time United States striker Landon Donovan off the roster.

Then came this month's qualifying losses to Mexico - the first qualifying loss at home in 15 years - and Costa Rica, the latter a 4-0 rout in San Jose that marked the most one-sided qualifying loss for an American team since 1980.

Critics often cited Klinsmann's questionable tactics and lineup configurations as reasons for the team's struggles. The Colombian has guided a young FC Dallas team to second and first in the Supporters Shield standings over the last two seasons and would be a popular choice if the U.S.is courageous enough to look to the future in the midst of a scenario when wins are immediately required. Without Donovan, the USA reached the knockout stage, falling to Belgium in the round of 16, and Donovan retired from the national team in October 2014.

Less than two weeks later, Klinsmann was out.
