Former United States men’s national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann used his Facebook page to issue a video thank you to fans.
Klinsmann called his time as boss a “huge, huge honor” and “amazing experience”, and implored fans to “keep supporting your national team. It’s your national team.”
Here’s the meat of it:
“It’s coming to end. Gotta respect that. I just want to say thank you so much to our fans, especially the American Outlaws. … A very very special thank you to all of the players. The response to them yesterday when the news came out was overwhelming. All the text message and calls of support were overwhelming. I wish them the best of luck. I was 1000 percent convinced we would qualify for Russia. It’s down to a new coach, but I’m still convinced he’ll get the job done.”
