After the United States Men’s National soccer team lost to Ghana 2-1 in the knockout round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup, Sunil Gulati was looking for a replacement. The president of the U.S. Soccer federation wanted a big name coach. Jurgen Klinsmen, former German men’s national team and Bayern Munich Football Club head coach, was asked by Gulati to be the coach. But Klinsmen turned down Gulati after the USSF did not offer terms to a contract.
