USA coach Klinsmann happy Edu quit Stoke

USA coach Jurgen Klinsmann is delighted with the form of Philadelphia Union midfielder Maurice Edu.

Edu is on-loan from Stoke City.

Klinsmann said: "We're looking for Mo to show us that sense of urgency. To come back on loan, get playing time and jump into the Union team, become a leader right away and help them get off on the right foot in MLS shows that he understands that the timing has to be there now if he wants to play.

"He could have sat there on the bench at Stoke maybe not playing much, and then there's no chance for him to get on the World Cup roster. But he understood that, made the decision to come back and now he's picking it up. We're looking forward to have Mo back with us because once he's in a rhythm, once he is fit and really zoomed in, then he's a very good player."
