The Washington Post’s Steven Goff came out with some interesting info yesterday, breaking the news that U.S. Men’s National Team Manager Jurgen Klinsmann will be at Rio Tinto Stadium when Real Salt Lake hosts Toronto FC this Saturday.
As Goff reported, Klinsmann will be in town to watch RSL’s Nick Rimando and Kyle Beckerman and TFC’s Michael Bradley ahead of the U.S.’s friendly against Mexico in Phoenix next Wednesday. Klinsmann will likely also be keeping a close eye on Claret-and-Cobalt midfielder Luis Gil, who received his first cap with the senior national team on Feb. 1 against South Korea.
By our count, this will be Klinsmann’s fourth time at Rio Tinto Stadium since last June. The USMNT manager was in town for the June 18, 2013 World Cup Qualifier against Honduras, the July 13, 2013 Gold Cup Group Stage match against Cuba and the Oct. 1 RSL-D.C. United U.S. Open Cup Final.
