North American League Tables

Take this with a grain of salt, but Jurgen Klinsmann might be in discussions with England to become their next manager. A former German colleague of his claims that he very well could be talking to the FA, but he offered no solid proof. Klinsmann lives in a fancy California mansion, has become quite Americanized, and is under contract for two more years. He has little reason to leave his relatively cushy job in the states for what would certainly be a more stressful gig across the pond.

Jurgen Klopp has signed a six year extension on his deal at Liverpool. The former Dortmund boss arrived at Anfield last fall and led the Reds to the Europa League final, where they lost to now three time champion Sevilla. He will now remain with the club until 2022, assuming he doesn't get fired first.

Leicester City have broken their record transfer free to bring Nigeria international Ahmed Musa on board. They paid CSKA Moscow £16 million for his signature. He scored 54 goals during his four seasons in Russia and 11 times in 58 international appearances for Nigeria.

Lower tier soccer in America has always struggled for financial viability. The NASL has long been privy to this sad fact. The Fort Lauderdale Strikers appear to be the latest club to undergo financial hardships and it's trickling down to the players and staff. Players have had paychecks bounce back for three pay cycles and have waited up to a week later to actually get paid. Same goes for club staff members.
