After days of speculation, U.S. Soccer fired men's national team manager Jurgen Klinsmann on Monday. 

Klinsmann was sacked after the U.S. began the hexagonal phase of 2018 World Cup qualifying with losses to Mexico and Costa Rica. 

Klinsmann, who coached the United States to the round of 16 at the 2014 World Cup, was also relieved of his duties as technical director. 

Here's how the soccer world reacted to the news on Twitter. 

LA Galaxy coach Bruce Arena is reportedly the favorite to replace Klinsmann as the USMNT's new manager.
