|Fulham's Clint Dempsey reaping benefits from USA boss Jürgen Klinsmann|
Fulham midfielder Clint Dempsey admits that he is getting great benefits by learning from his national team manager Jürgen Klinsmann, who was a former world class player.
Klinsmann won the 1990 World cup with Germany and had an enviable club career with the likes of VfB Stuttgart, Inter Milan, Monaco, Tottenham and Bayern Munich is passing on his experience to the current crop of USA players, and Dempsey is first to acknowledge that.
Dempsey told Fox Soccer “To have a world class player to be your manager is a great thing,”
“He has so much experience and knowledge that he has about the game that he can pass down to me. It’s great to add that to [my] game to be the best I can be.”
Dempsey is hoping for a Champions League with Fulham as well as another World Cup with USA, set as his personal goals.
The midfielder added “You never know your road in life, but hopefully Champions League is in the cards for me, hopefully I can play one more World Cup, and hopefully still be playing at a high level for one or two more years [after that] before I hang up the boots”
