According to Spanish newspaper giant Marca, current Bayern Munich and former Barcelona manager would like to take charge of the US national team before his coaching career is over.

So Pep will win another Champions League title — or six — with Bayern over the next eight to 10 years, take over the US national team in the summer of 2023, mold the Americans into a tiki-taka juggernaut in just two-and-a-half years and add a World Cup trophy to his legacy? Alright, sign me up.

Looking, admittedly very far, down the line, Real Salt Lake midfielder Luis Gil will be the wily old veteran of the team at the age of 32 years old, and the focal point of a (hopefully) Top 10 FIFA World Rankings USMNT with its first legitimate hope of winning a World Cup, which is a fair bet to be hosted by the United States.

Honestly, you don't know the level of crazy and insanity you're getting yourself into here, Pep. If you thought the seat was hot at Barcelona when things weren't going well, just wait until you meet the American soccer general public's ever-fluctuating expectations and opinions.
