What They're Saying: Jurgen Klinsmann

“I think for Julian, it's just a maturing process. He's getting a little bit older and he knows that there's a lot at stake for him towards the future. He wants to break into that team and he wants to get minutes there, and he has people like [Frank] Ribery and [Arjen] Robben ahead of him. But the way he presented himself these 10 days -- and it was actually from the first training session on, where we said, 'Oooh!' He made a big step forward. I think he just becomes more of a personality.”

-- U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann on 21-year-old Julian Green, who scored in both U.S. friendlies. He has yet to earn playing time at Bayern Munich but made the first team after spending the last season with its "B" team. (MLSSoccer.com)
