New boss -- but who will be the deputy?
New York Times, July 30th, 2011 3:39AM

MOST READ


Columnist George Vecsey asks, now that Juergen Klinsmann is the new U.S. national team soccer coach, who plays Joachim Loew in this performance?

Loew was the assistant who was known as the tactician behind the new-wave, camp-leader energy of Klinsi in Germany’s spirited third-place finish during the 2006 World Cup. As head coach, Loew led Germany to another third place in the 2010 World Cup.

Klinsmann has the aura of the international soccer celebrity -- “sexy,” one soccer insider said, meaning attractive, in the public relations sense. But it would have been instructive, in a purely laboratory experiment, to give Bruce Arena or Bob Bradley the German squad of 2006 and see if they could achieve third place. Either one just might have done it.

    Can anyone tell me how Klinsi helped Toronto? In an empirical way? Toronto is the worst team in the MLS. Not just failed at making points; they've got the worst goals for, goals against. So what was Juergen Klinsmann doing for them? And how did this "stint" aid his resume/help qualify him for the US Men's National Team job? I'll bet the happiest guys on the continent are the Toronto chaps who now don't have to honor some "locked in" pay/contract to pay Juergen.
