It's over for Jurgen Klinsmann ... he's just been fired as the head coach of the U.S. Men's National Soccer Team.
U.S. Soccer Prez Sunil Gulati just issued a statement ...
"Today we made the difficult decision of parting ways with Jurgen Klinsmann, our head coach of the U.S. Men’s National Team and Technical Director."
"We want to thank Jurgen for his hard work and commitment during these last five years. He took pride in having the responsibility of steering the program, and there were considerable achievements along the way."
"While we remain confident that we have quality players to help us advance to Russia 2018, the form and growth of the team up to this point left us convinced that we need to go in a different direction."
Team USA has been getting wrecked on the national stage -- losing 2-1 to Mexico and recently getting shellacked by Costa Rica in a 4-0 route.
