Jurgen Klinsmann aims to loan players

U.S. men’s coach Jurgen Klinsmann said he wants to see his national team players have an impact in Major League Soccer's playoffs, according to a report.

"What we want to see from a national-team perspective is our players putting a stamp on the playoffs, putting a stamp in their performances for their team and not just go with the flow," Klinsmann said in an interview with USSoccer.com.

Klinsmann said he already has a training plan in place for those national team players whose season ends in November. He said he would work with the team players who see action in MLS to plan offseason loans and a January national team training camp in both Brazil and Southern California.

"Our priorities are set so that the first one is if you get a chance to go on loan to Europe, do it," Klinsmann told USSoccer.com. "It is very crucial for us that the players understand that everything they do now today has an influence on Brazil 2014 next summer. They can't take it easy."

"Whoever won’t be on loan in January or February overseas is going to be part of our mandatory January camp," Klinsmann said in the interview. "We expect everybody comes in. We’ll try to bring in some younger players (and) have a look at them as well, because we want to get a roster together of 20-23 guys that is highly motivated and inspired to go into the World Cup year. It will be exciting. Our plan is to break it down into two periods: one in LA and one in Sao Paulo. They will get a first taste of Brazil in January."

MLS playoffs begin next Wednesday and Klinsmann said he hopes to see Seattle Sounders forward Clint Dempsey, LA Galaxy forward Landon Donovan and Sporting Kansas City midfielder Graham Zusi lead the way for their clubs.

"I think it's great to see MLS go into its final rounds and the race for the playoff spots and also for the Supporters Shield is just really exciting to see,” he said in the interview. "It's very balanced at the moment and anybody can beat anybody. It's exciting it also shows the players that they need to be one top of their game."

Klinsmann said the national team now has world class players playing outside of the U.S., including Alejandro Bedoya (Nantes) and Aron Johannsson (AZ Alkmaar).

"I think Alejandro's (Bedoya) move to Nantes was very significant because he's getting to play against the guys that we're going to meet next year in Brazil," Klinsmann told USSoccer.com.

"You know if you have the chance to play against Paris Saint-Germain, you know with Zlatan Ibrahimovic or other players, this is just big. He (Bedoya) just scored a goal against Mexico's No. 1 goal keeper and therefore it is what we're looking for. We want our players to get to the highest level possible in order to have that competition, in order to meet the guys that they are probably going to play against in the World Cup. When this move happened in the summer break obviously we were all thrilled for Alejandro."
