Former United States star Landon Donovan says that the national team should consider sacking manager Jurgen Klinsmann if they do not qualify for the World Cup 2018. The USA suffered a shock 2-0 loss against Guatemala a few days ago.
This result coupled with Trinidad and Tobago getting a win from their match means that US are now second favourites to qualify from the group as winners. They have been pushed down to the second spot by Trinidad and Tobago. This position could only get worse if the national team fails to win the reverse game against Guatemala on March 30.
The Major League Soccer has recently witnessed a huge increase on wages especially due to the signing of several top Premier League players, although at the latter end of their careers.
The likes of Steven Gerrard, Frank Lampard and Didier Drogba have moved to the MLS to join various clubs like LA Galaxy and New York City FC. Even though these players have been signed as the designated players for the clubs, the inflow in huge numbers has added to the wage bill rising tremendously compared to a few years ago.
