USA Coach Jurgen Klinsmann is setting a bad tone

cn|2’s Bruce Snyder is not thrilled with the comments made by USA Soccer Coach Jurgen Klinsmann. Klinsmann told the NY Times: “For us talking about winning a World Cup, it’s not realistic.”

I (Bruce) cannot ever imagine Bill Belichick saying the Patriots have no shot at a Super Bowl, or Rick Pitino and John Calipari saying their respective teams have no chance at winning the NCAA Tournament. Even if a coach believes it, he needs to keep it to himself. If not their players might not give 100 per cent and viewers will not invest the time watching?
