The U.S. Men’s National Team’s Head of Coaching Says He’s Getting Into Scurry’s Case

U.S. soccer president tells CNN more misconduct cases reported

In the wake of Saturday’s match in Columbus, Ohio, the country has been riveted by the reports of misconduct involving players and officials — something that’s occurred before in soccer, but never at such a high level of play.

The U.S. women’s national team has suspended goalkeeper and midfielder Brianna Scurry for the rest of the tournament and has been hit with a $5,000 fine. On Saturday, four players were sent off the field and a coach has been fired over alleged abusive behavior toward his players.

But for the first time, we’re hearing from the head of the U.S. men’s national team, Jurgen Klinsmann, who spoke to CNN on Sunday.

In the wake of the recent events, Klinsmann said he had been contacted by a number of media outlets about Scurry and the other incidents.

When asked what kind of contact he was having, he said:

“We talked to the female players who were involved. We talked to the women’s national team, who also are involved. We talked to the people in the game. If they were concerned, we took action. We have to look into it.”

Klinsmann said he has spoken to a number of coaches, “including with MLS, who have told me that there’s an issue there.”

He also said on Sunday that he was not aware that Scurry was a victim of any kind of abuse on the field, but that he’s told her that.

Scurry, who was playing as a goalkeeper at the time, has not specified whether her actions were intentional or not. The club she plays for has issued a statement calling them “completely unacceptable and unacceptable behavior that is totally inconsistent with the values we expect of our own players and staff.”
