Fitness Is The Key, Thinks Jurgen

German coach Jurgen Klinsmann is threatening to drop players from the World Cup squad who do not pass a fitness test next month.

As reported at SportingLife, he said this : "We taught everyone how to watch his fitness and how to work out so we expect our troops to be in top shape."

Far be it from me to tell such a legend of the game how to run his national side, but do Germany actually have enough quality players that they can afford to drop some because they haven't been doing their push-ups. I think not.

And look, I managed to get through this whole post without mentioning Jurgen's use of the word 'troops'. Didn't I do well ?
