Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Jur­gen Klins­mann is out as coach of the US soccer team. US Soccer Fed­er­a­tion Pres­i­dent Su­nil Gu­lati an­nounced yes­ter­day that Klins­mann has been “re­lieved of his du­ties” as coach and tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor for US Soccer. Gu­lati will con­duct a me­dia tele­con­fer­ence call to­day. Klins­mann re­placed Bob Bradley in July 2011 and led the team to the 2013 CONCACAF Gold Cup ti­tle and the sec­ond round of the 2014 World Cup, where the Amer­i­cans lost to Bel­gium in ex­tra time. But the US was knocked out in last year's Gold Cup semi­fi­nals, lost to Mex­ico in a play­off for a Con­fed­er­a­tions Cup berth and started 0-2 this month in the fi­nal round of World Cup qual­i­fy­ing.
