Jurgen Klinsmann took to Twitter today to answer questions from the US Twitteratti. Here were some of his answers.
› On Clint Dempsey: “Spoke with Clint. Back in training & hopes to play v Inter. All good for WCQs”
› On Brad Guzan replacing Tim Howard: “Brad has played in WCQ and having an awesome year @ Villa. We are confident he will step up.” Q: Do you think Guzan will step up w/o Howard?
› On announcing location of the next home qualifiers: “Very soon. We are excited about the venues!”
› On Brek Shea: “Happy for Brek to play in the Premier League. Hopefully he gets more PT RT:
@coleman_gibbs Do you think Shea has a chance to start v CRC?
› On USMNT players (yawn): “To become more consistent and rise to their next level” RT
@marktopshelf22 What is something you have been emphasizing for USMNT players?
› On Fabian Johnson: Yes. He should be good to join us in Denver. RT
@ChiefFif Heard that Fabian Johnson is returning to training. Option for the next 2 games?
› On Josh Gatt: Alot of work ahead. He’s had a great attitude so far. RT
@alval211how high is Josh Gatts potential for the USMNT?
› On Steve Cherundolo: Happy he is back in training. Hopefully he can catch up as soon as possible.
@ElChosenJuan94 how is cherundolo doing?
› On Jozy Altidore: Thrilled when he scores for AZ. Hope it happens with us as well. RT
@lucasloredo Jozy has had success at AZ. How do you translate to USMNT?
› On grass versus turf: If I have the choice, I always prefer grass. RT
@sunmysidepdx would you ever play a WCQ on turf? In Portland?
