Grant Wahl: What U.S. Soccer can learn from Jurgen Klinsmann era
Monday November 21st, 2016

After days of speculation, U.S. Soccer fired men's national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann on Monday. 

Klinsmann was sacked after the U.S. began CONCACAF's hexagonal phase of 2018 World Cup qualifying with losses to Mexico and Costa Rica. 

Klinsmann, who coached the United States to the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup, was also relieved of his duties as technical director. 

While most current players have remained mum on the issue, a few have vocalized their opinions–including a couple of players frozen out by Klinsmann during his time in charge. Here's how the soccer world reacted to the news on Twitter. 

LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena is reportedly the favorite to replace Klinsmann as the USMNT's new manager.
