THE MORE YOU PAY, THE MORE HE’S WORTH

The Washington Post reported that U.S. National Team coach Juergen Klinsmann is being paid $2.5 million in base salary, more than four times higher than the man he replaced last summer, Bob Bradley. according to the U.S. Soccer Federation’s audited statements.

Klinsmann signed a three-year contract with the USSF in August.  Bradley, who had guided the U.S. into the second round at the 2010 World Cup, was dumped 12 months into a four-year contract extension after a disappointing runner-up finish at last summer’s CONCACAF Gold Cup.  Bradley has since been hired as coach of Egypt.  [December 9]
