U.S. national team forward Kenny Cooper was officially introduced by 1860 Munich on Tuesday in a press conference where he showed off the No. 33 jersey he will be wearing for the Bundesliga 2 club.

Here is a video clip of Cooper's press conference, where he answers several questions about his move (and even answers a handful of questions about whether he has a girlfriend).

One interesting thing to note is that Cooper's new head coach is Ewald Lienen. If the name rings a bell it is because he was the Hannover 96 manager when Clint Mathis made the move to Hannover (yes, the same Ewald Lienen Mathis gave the "It's about time you played me" gesture that eventually led to Mathis quick return to MLS.

Cooper's press conference was impressive as we saw a confident and relaxed Cooper who looks poised to make the most of his move to Europe.

What do you think of Cooper's move? Think the move to Europe will help him establish a larger role with the national team? Like 1860 Munich as a club for Cooper to grow with?
