Klinsmann on Altidore's Situation, April 18th, 2014 4:49PM

“As a striker, scoring goals gives you the confidence you need going into the next game. From the extreme positive, the same could be said for Jozy right now at Sunderland, going through the extreme negative. At the end of the day you have to manage those phases and we all hope that Jozy keeps his head up and stays positive and waits for his next opportunity. Sooner or later he is going to score ... He is a very important part of our team going into this summer’s World Cup. I’m so convinced that he’s going to do well there.” Read the original story...

    Man, JK, give it up on this guy! Jozy sucks! He is worthless. Don't waste a roster spot on this slow lumbering hulk. There are better strikers to choose from. Aron Johansson, Wondo, Eddie Johnson, Julian Green. Stop this fixation on Altidore, and get him off USMNT once and for all.
