What They're Saying: Jesse Marsch

"When a lot of the young German youth coaches or coaches in general see the young Americans come over here, they see this confidence, they see this will to win and they see this mentality to do whatever it takes. That fits well with the German mentality of wanting to be the best and wanting to be the most professional and wanting to make sure they are the most prepared and organized. The combination of the two means that you get some fearless players to put into a good environment and give them a chance to grow and get better and these American players are willing to adapt and learn and grow and do whatever it takes. The combination of the two cultures has led to this being a positive trend, and a trend that I hope continues."

    I'd love to see Marsch as the USMNT coach!

    More of the same but better. You don't see American players going to Spain or countries that play a more technical and smarter type of soccer; instead to England and Germany, two countries who tend to fit come closer to what American can play , high octane and fight....

    Don't expect going to play in Germany will refine the American player, which is the issue if we as a country are going to get better in the long run.
