Klinsmann on Chandler's choice

Ives Galarcep checked with in Jurgen Klinsmann as U.S. players arrived in Orlando, Fla., for training camp ahead of the team’s upcoming friendlies and World Cup qualifiers over the next three weeks. On German-born Timmy Chandler's rejection of the U.S. invite: "At the end of the day the players, when they mature throughout their careers, they have to make their decisions. He has to make his decisions, he’s now made this decision and we take it and we move on. We’re not happy about it, but that’s normal.”

The 22-year-old Chandler could still play for Germany.

“Down the road, when he gets little older and a bit more mature, there will be this decision to make on what you want to do with your life and with your career,” Klinsmann said. “That moment gets closer and closer for him and we’ll see what direction he wants to go. But we’re not forcing anybody. It’s their choice.

"It will happen all the time because it’s a global game and now we live in a world of globalization where a lot of kids grow up with dual citizenships, or in Alfredo’s (Morales) case three options, and we do not put pressure on the players but sooner or later they have to make a decision to also make it clear to their team if they are committed to it or not.”
