Report: US Soccer Federation Reaches Out to Jurgen Klopp for Head Coach Vacancy

US Soccer Federation makes ‘first contact’ with former Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp for current head coaching vacancy, says Miguel Delaney Independent It was reported on Thursday morning.

The federation’s move to add Klopp came a day after Gregg Berhalter was fired following the United States men’s national soccer team’s disappointing performance at the Copa America. The USMNT finished third in their group behind Uruguay and Panama and failed to advance to the knockout stages.

Klopp, 57, has announced that he is leaving Liverpool at the end of the 2023-24 Premier League season and plans to take a break from managing. The German has spent nine transformational years at the club, during which time Liverpool won the Premier League title in 2020 and the Champions League trophy in 2019.

Prior to his role at Liverpool, Klopp spent seven years as manager of Borussia Dortmund in the Bundesliga, where he worked with U.S. national team star Christian Pulisic.

“How should I put it, my energy is running out,” Klopp said in his farewell video to Liverpool in January. “I will do something else. But I will not manage a club or a country for at least a year.”
