Klinsmann will spend time in EuropeU.S. head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is taking full advantage of his time in Europe following the match against Belgium, traveling across the continent to visit current and future U.S. prospects. Here's the breakdown:
Sept. 7 - Jurgen watched Stuart Holden play 65 minutes for Bolton's reserves against Rochdale in the Manchester Senior Cup. He met with Stuart as well as Bolton manager Owen Coyle and team chairman Phil Gartside.
"I thought Stuart did really well," Klinsmann told Bolton's official website. "We've obviously been keeping a close eye on him since his injury because he's not only a fantastic player, but a great person. "He's getting closer and closer, but I'm not looking to get him in United States squad as soon as possible. He's certainly in my plans, but I'm sure I'm one of many who don't want to rush him back."
Sept. 8 - Jurgen went to Everton to meet with manager David Moyes. Amongst other things, he thanked Moyes for allowing his goalkeeper coach Chris Woods to work with the U.S. team in Belgium.
Sept. 9 - Heading back to Germany, he will visit Hoffenheim and speak with U.S. prospects Fabian Johnson, Danny Williams, Joe Gyau and Charles Renken, as well as team management.
Sept. 10 - He heads to Stuttgart where he will have the chance to see Steve Cherundolo when Stuttgart host Hannover 96.
