Desc Timmy Chandler has long been a mystery figure for the USMNT. He’s been a consistent player in the Bundesliga for years as a key figure for Eintracht Frankfurt and, before that, Nurnberg. However, he has never been able to bring anything close to consistency to the USMNT and, as a result, has fallen out of the picture following a series of much-criticized stints with the national team. Unsurprisingly, Chandler has once again performed well with his club this season. He’s scored four goals across 23 appearances in all competitions, showing off his versatility as a fullback once again. And, as a result of that versatility and those good performances, there’s still a chance that Chandler could have a part to play for the USMNT down the line

[Chandler has proven to be an asset because of his versatility] It’s just not such a difficult thing whether it’s right or left, because I can also play with my left foot. I think it’s OK. I always play there where the coach needs me and sometimes he needs me in defense on the right, left or as a centre back so it’s not a big deal for me. I always try my best and today I could score, which was important

[Timothy Chandler hopes a change in tactics could mean regular first-team football with Eintracht Frankfurt in the months ahead] We’re not as predictable with a four-man defence that we can then switch up during a game and tailor according to the opposition. It’s a good option. We just need to have the right mentality, and fight on and off the ball. The results will come if we can do that

It took a long time to fight back and get into contention. Whether I’m playing 90 minutes or not doesn’t matter - I’m always here for the team. The coach knows I’m ready to help in any way I can - my run in the team shows that. Hopefully I’ll continue to get my minutes during the second half of the season

[Eintracht Frankfurt’s USA defender Timothy Chandler has been playing so well in 2020 that even his teammates can’t quite believe it] I’m running out of superlatives for him. You have to ask what magic potion he’s been drinking. I’d like to have some of it myself, so that I can score a couple of goals, too! But I’m absolutely delighted for him. He’s worked hard for it, was on the bench for a while and now he’s getting his reward

It doesn’t matter if I play one minute or 90, I always give my absolute all […] Normally I don’t score so often with my head, not even in training, so I don’t know what’s wrong! Normally I don’t score so often with my head, not even in training, so I don’t know what’s wrong!
