A revelation on Jurgen Klinsmann

The U.S. men’s soccer coach is trying to impart some sort of style, a vague nation of playing “the right way” with skill and flair.

He juggles his lineups, often putting players in unfamiliar positions.

He emphasizes long-term growth over short-term details like defensive responsibilities.

He’s generally positive and upbeat, even after losses.

At last, I’ve figured it out.

Jurgen Klinsmann is coaching as if the MNT was a U-10 team.
