Sobering thoughts on USSF

Claudio Reyna on U.S. soccer: We're far too arrogant, far too obnoxious | Goal.com

"We have all these countries around the world we can learn from, and you go over there and you’re not going to see different training sessions," Reyna said. "You’re going to see good games, and poor games, like in any league across the world."But the one thing that we haven’t realized, I think, when we have our American soccer people go abroad to learn, I don’t think they see the behaviors of the people and how they coach in their day-to-day work. That’s the shake-up I hope people realize more than anything."You go to a U-14 and U-15 coach in Spain, and they are 10 times more humble than a U-14 or U-15 coach in Connecticut, New Jersey or New York, who thinks they’re the next Pep Guardiola or Patrick Vieira."Until we realize that — that we’re not as good as we think we are at all levels — then I think we’re going to continue being what we are, which is mediocre." http://www.goal.com/en-us/news/claudio-reyna-on-american-soccer-were-far-too-arrogant-far/1w9vcdubu5yhf1vj9c89qmxyib
