What They're Sayinga
"Having Clint back in the United States and joining MLS is big and I think everyone in the U.S. is excited about the news. I am thrilled for MLS because you have an outstanding player now hopefully
filling more stadiums and getting even more kids and people excited about the game. For Clint, it’s a challenge, coming from one of the top leagues in the world, coming back to the U.S. and
being back in MLS where we still have to work on a lot of things. Clint himself has set the highest benchmark for himself over the last year. He became our captain and he has to keep that benchmark
and he knows that. I told him that over the last two years that he’s got to go for the next level. Obviously, we want the best Clint Dempsey ever and that’s what we’re going to push
him toward as we begin to look toward Brazil. He has set a high standard for himself, and it’s up to us coaches to make sure he keeps that high standard.”
-- U.S. national
team coach Jurgen Klinsmann on Clint Dempsey's move from Tottenham to MLS's Seattle Sounders.
