Jozy Altidore heard the criticism from Ian Dowie, his manager at Hull City FC, and didn’t take offense.
“Me and Ian have a good relationship,” the 20-year-old American forward said. “He was good when he came in with me, took me under his wing, did a lot of extra sessions, stuff like that.”
Altidore will start workouts with the U.S. national team on Monday and figures to start in the team’s World Cup opener against England on June 12.
Dowie took over as Altidore’s manager on March 17, and had some harsh words for Altidore, who scored just two goals this season.
