It seems they wanted him to play at least 1 year of NCAA soccer before turning pro, and he moved to play in Germany instead. The coach didnt approve.

ďAnybody who has ever dreamed of something and worked hard for it can understand how it is when you feel like you deserve something and then your dreams get shattered," Subotic told ESPN when asked about the Under-20 World Cup omission.

It might not have been the last straw, but it seems to have played a major role in his choice.

And adding a world class defender to the US team would bring them to a whole other level I think
