Arena's head has been demanded by USMNT fans

USMNT fans demand Arena's sacking after baffling post-match quotes

October 11, 2017 By Oscar Rojas
The American boss failed to do a proper damage control following the shocking elimination from the 2018 World Cup.

Finishing fifth out of six teams in the CONCACAF region wasn't enough reason for Bruce Arena to step down as the USMNT's coach. The former LA Galaxy boss, who led the team to their most successful World Cup run in this century had some disappointing words after last night's fiasco against Trinidad & Tobago, which will force the Stars & Stripes to watch the tournament on their flat screens.

"Nothing has to change. To make any kind of crazy changes I think would be foolish. We're building a good system in our professional league. We have players playing abroad of some quality," Arena stated.

The last World Cup in which the USMNT didn't feature was the 1986 edition, hosted by Mexico. The team's peak came in the 2002 tournament, where they reached the Quarter finals to be eliminated by the eventual runner up, Germany.

Arena's statements seemed to be focused on keeping his job rather than analyzing what went wrong with the team on Tuesday, with the Soca Warriors destroying their hopes of another WC performance.

"There's nothing wrong with what we're doing. Certainly as our league grows, it advances the national team program. We have some good young players come up," the coach added.

Evidently, these words didn't go down well among American fans, who slammed the coach after such a disappointing experience.
