Ghana 2014 World Cup opponents USA hand coach Klinsmann long-term contract

USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann signs long term deal ahead of the World Cup

Ghana’s World Cup opponent USA have sealed a new four-year deal with head coach Jurgen Klinsmann even before the tournament kicks off next year in Brazil.

Klinsmann succeeded Bob Bradley as coach of the Yanks almost two and a half years ago.

The ex Germany captain has been able to assemble an exciting young squad which clinched the 2013 Gold Cup hosted on home soil.

The American FA is firm in its believe that Klinsmann is surely the man to take the side forward regardless of what happened at the 2014 World Cup where the team is drawn in the acclaimed group of death alongside Germany, Portugal and Ghana.

“After the World Cup, lots of things can happen,” US FA chief Sunil Gulati said.

“Jurgen may have other interest. We may have other interest. This is a way, frankly, of making a long-term commitment to each other, one that we’re pleased with.

“Traditionally we’ve waited until after the World Cup. We’ve decided not to do that here. Jurgen is a unique coach with unique opportunities.”

The fresh deal makes Klinsmann the first American coach to be handed such a long term contract before a major tournament like the World Cup.

The German also assumes the reigns as technical director of America with his fresh deal not expiring until after the 2018 World Cup to be hosted by Russia.

    Clearly, the Americans are looking at 2018 because they won’t get far in 2014. They will be a strong force however after 2014 because the same person is building all their youth teams.
