Mexican club will not release American players for friendly
Jurgen Klinsmann is not happy with Mexican club Puebla's decision to keep DaMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco from playing in Wednesday's US-Mexico match.
The United States Men's National Team will face Mexico in a World Cup tune-up on Wednesday, but they just found out they'd be without both DaMarcus Beasley and Michael Orozco.
And USMNT head coach Jurgen Klinsmann is not happy about it, especially since they had planned on having both players.
"We are very angry about this," Klinsmann said in an interview with UniVision. "The Mexican clubs release all their players for this very prestigious friendly.
"We don't appreciate that at all."
The game doesn't fall within the FIFA international fixture date, so professional clubs are not obligated to allow its players to participate. However, many other clubs will be allowing both Mexican and American players alike to play.
Klinsmann went on to say he respected Puebla, but this decision makes him "very upset."
