Martin Vasquez replaced

Former Chivas USA coach Martin Vazquez was removed as USMNT assistant coach. In a statement made by USSF this Sunday, the U.S. Soccer Federation announced a turmoil into Jurgen Klinsmann’s coaching staff. Vazquez left his duties while former Germany national team manager Berti Vogts had been hired as coach advisor and U.S. U20 coach Tab Ramos has been added to the national team coaching staff. With less than three months until the start of the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, this is a huge turnover. As Richard Whittall pointed out, the switch to Ramos could mean a major emphasis on European soccer, as Ramos will “offer a better insight to the USMNT than Vasquez” did. Still Vogts could add his experience and his knowledge of Germany and Portugal, two USA rivals that he already faced with Azerbaijan. This move signs a hard down for Vasquez, who had two stints Klinsmann’s assistant with both Bayern Munich and U.S. team. The key for the changes could have to do with the tactical aspects of the game. Neither Klinsmann and Vazquez are tacticians so Ramos and Vogts could provide the tactical knowledge U.S team needs. Klinsmann wanted a tactical guy by his side and he didn’t think Vazquez was good enough to handle this duty. Now Klinsmann can relies on Vogts and Ramos for tactical decisions.
