Jurgen Klinsmann has been fired from his position as the US soccer boss after the United States Soccer Federation discovered that he is in fact German.

The former player who won the World Cup for Germany in 1990 has been the United States soccer coach since 2011, but has been let go today after the USSF cottoned on to his nationality.

“We had no idea that Herr Klinsmann was German,” said U.S. Soccer President Sunil Gulati. “How could we? Anyway, we want an American coach to help make America great again.

“It’s been a difficult decision but we want to advance into Russia in 2018 and we don’t think a German can successfully achieve that.”
