What They're Saying: Manfred Schellscheidt

"What we made sure about in the camp, I would always start out by saying, ‘Look, in U14 camp, nobody can fail. You’re just simply too young to fail. That took the pressure off these little guys who were often so anxious and concerned and nervous about what this would be like.”

-- Manfred Schellscheidt, on his last camp as technical director of the U.S. U-14 development team program in 2011 when attendees included 12-year-old Christian Pulisic, plus the likes of Haji Wright, Weston McKennie, Josh Perez, Danny Barbir, McKinze Gaines and Luca de la Torre, now all young European-based pros like Pulisic.
