Jur­gen Klins­mann out as coach of U.S. soc­cer team

Daily Freeman (Kingston, NY) - - SPORTS -

Jur­gen Klins­mann is out as coach of the U.S. soc­cer team.

U.S. Soc­cer Fed­er­a­tion Pres­i­dent Su­nil Gu­lati an­nounced Mon­day that Klins­mann has been “re­lieved of his du­ties” as coach and tech­ni­cal di­rec­tor for U.S. Soc­cer. Gu­lati will con­duct a media tele­con­fer­ence call Tues­day.

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 U.S. 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.
