"For him to publicly state issues that he has with Major League Soccer in my view is not something that is going to allow him to effectively serve the role as not just coach but as technical director," Garber said. "I am in no way saying what Sunil should be doing with Jurgen as it relates with his employment. That is between Sunil and Jurgen. I think he's done a great job with the national team. I think he needs to think very, very hard about how he manages himself publicly and how he deals with his view as to how he should motivate players that are playing in our league."
"I believe that Landon should have been in Brazil, not because he earned it or deserved it, but because his performance dictated it," Garber said during a conference call with reporters. "And if anybody disagrees with that, and some of you might — clearly Jurgen does — then I believe that his treatment was inexcusable."
