Appointment of ex-Tottenham, Inter star Klinsmann excites DC United's Davies

DC United striker Charlie Davies says the appointment of Jurgen Klinsmann as the new USA national team manager is an exciting move.

The Germany legend has replaced Bob Bradley at the helm and Davies, on loan to DC from French club Sochaux, feels it is a positive change.

"I think it's exciting. For all the players, I think everyone is excited," he told the Washington Post.

"[Juergen] Klinsmann, for me, is a legend and a world-class striker. What better coach to have than a guy that plays your position and can really help and make sure everyone excels in that position.

"It's a little bit of a bittersweet moment because coach [Bob] Bradley did so much for me. He gave me the chance to be on the national team and I would've liked to get one game under him since the accident.

"We had so much of a history together, it would've been nice, but I think he'll be fine. He's obviously going to move on and continue to coach. He eats, sleeps and breathes soccer, so I don't see him staying too long out of the game."
