MOST COMMENTED

"I thought it would be cool getting Klinsmann as US National team coach, but I think it's actually worse than when Bradley was coach ... Requirements to get on US National team under Klinsmann: Be a fake American, be born outside the US, have one US distant relative ... I see the team is calling in guys who are really germans who know they've got no chance of playing for germany so they'll settle with the US."

-- American striker Preston Zimmerman, who plays in Germany for third division Darmstadt, tweeting about the state of the U.S. national team under Jurgen Klinsmann. He says the trend of bringing in German-Americans to the national and under-23 teams drives him crazy, adding that he never expects to be called in and it doesn't hurt his feelings. (Twitter)

    Leave it to a 3rd division player to criticize someone as successful as Klinsmann for using people with "no chance of playing for Germany". How's Darmstadt working out for ya Zimmerman?

    First, I agree with Zimmerman. Second, what great successes has Klinsmann achieved as a coach?

    Timothy Chandler has every right to play for team USA his dad was a US Serviceman and his mom a German, he could play for either team. Unfortunately, Germany's talent pool is to deep so Klinsi is taking him for team USA.
