Several players who have represented the U.S. national team under Jurgen Klinsmann have reacted to the German coach's firing.

Following Monday's news that U.S. Soccer has fired head coach and technical director Jurgen Klinsmann, several current and former national team players took to Twitter to react.

Unsurprisingly, Sporting Kansas City midfielder Benny Feilhaber, who has been frozen out and criticized by Klinsmann despite stellar form in MLS, was hardly distraught at the decision.

Former national team defender Jimmy Conrad, now a media personality, also shed very few tears upon learning of Klinsmann's firing. 

Meanwhile Borussia Dortmund's Joe Gyau, who made his debut under Klinsmann and only recently returned from a devastating knee injury, had much kinder words.

The player most tied with Klinsmann's tenure with the national team, though, refused to dance on the German coach's grave.
