What They're Saying: Sunil Gulati

“I don’t know anyone who would say, ‘No matter what happens, this is what we are going to do.’ That would be silly. We expect to qualify, we expect Jurgen to be the coach, but I don’t think anyone can honestly say, ‘Regardless of what happens, this is what we’re going to do.’ It’s unrealistic.”

-- U.S. Soccer president Sunil Gulati, speaking at a media roundtable before USA-St. Vincent & the Grenadines, on whether he could say Jurgen Klinsmann would keep his job as national team coach through the current World Cup cycle. Gulati said he and U.S. Soccer CEO Dan Flynn met with Klinsmann recently to discuss their concerns to "make sure this [recent] string of results and the way we are headed is not the way we are going to be in November, January and beyond.” (Washington Post)

    If you want to risk not qualifying put Klinsmann in charge.

    Yes, we should resign Klinsmann. He needs to finish the job of destroying US soccer.

    Didn't this whole saga start with the 4-1 loss to Ireland in late 2014.

    I couldn't agree more. I am really finding it difficult to root for this team. I was actually hoping they would lose in Trinidad so that there would be more pressure to fire this overpaid excuse for a coach. He is beginning to remind me of a used car salesman or fraud artist. The absolute BS that falls out of this guys mouth is remarkable.
