United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann was at the Miami Sun Life Stadium on Monday night to watch their World Cup group opponents Ghana during the friendly against South Korea.
The German-born coach was seen in the VIP area during the match as he is seeking to monitor their first opponents in the tough Group D next week at the World Cup in Brazil.
Klinsmann was not part of the 23-man playing contingent that touched down at São Paulo Guarulhos airport early Monday morning with the mission of monitoring the Black Stars.
The United States coach, along with World Cup advisor Berti Vogts and scout Matthias Hamann, skipped out on the team’s first training session in Brazil to watch the Black Stars in person before hopping on an overnight flight to join the team at their team in Sao Paolo.
In Klinsmann’s absence, assistants Tab Ramos and Andreas Herzog ran the US through a light session.
But no matter the load, everything the team does between now and June 16 revolves around a single aim.
