In a bid to become more competitive in the MLS, Toronto FC have retained the consulting services of former German national team player and manager Juergen Klinsmann – along with his company SoccerSolutions. The club wants to reorganize its soccer program and have made sure they find one of the best in the business to help them do so.
Juergen Klinsmann is a German soccer legend. He won the world cup with Germany in 1990 and coached the national side to a 3rd place finish in 2006. I think it’s fair to say he knows his stuff.
Bringing the right people to North America is exactly what we need to be doing to advance the quality of our game. This was talked about in an earlier post where Brazilian soccer star Bento has brought his expertise to Canada as well to help amerliorate the game.
When you want to be the best, a good formula is to learn from the best. Having the likes of Klinsmann and Bento in North America will help us learn the game the way it should be played. Not only that, but it will do wonders for our system, for our kids and for the game.
