This is the first of a multi-part series I’m doing on Klinsmann. I want to stay focused and only talk about one specific theme per post.
Now is the time to clearly set up expectations. Be specific!
What should his charter be?
I’ve stated this before, but let me repeat not only what I think is achievable, but what everyone should be in line with. He should:
- Implement a discernible style.
- Identify and select players that ultimately get picked up and play for Champion’s League level clubs.
- Results: Maintain CONCACAF dominance with Mexico and get out of group play in World Cup 2014.
- Hold his youth national team coaches in line with the above three requirements.
These are the critical top-level items that will establish a strong platform upon which we can build something meaningful. That is what I will hold Klinsmann’s tenure accountable to.
