Former Germany star Jurgen Klinsmann revealed on Tuesday that he turned down the chance to coach the United States after the World Cup having failed to agree terms with the US Soccer Federation.

The 46-year-old led Germany to third at the 2006 World Cup and had been in discussions to take charge of the US team after July’s tournament.

After negotiations broke down, US coach Bob Bradley, who led the team to the Round of 16 in South Africa, has had his contract extended.

“We negotiated for three to four weeks, but we are were not able to transform the verbal agreement that we had found into a contractual one,” Klinsmann was reported to have told German media Tuesday.

Klinsmann revealed the negotiations broke down because of the position’s responsibilities.

Having been fired by Bayern Munich in April 2009 after just nine months in charge, Klinsmann has returned to California with his family.

Terrible. Gulati and Bradley need to be fired. The fans want Klinsmann. Give him what he wants.
