Gregg Berhalter wants to remain United States manager despite the turmoil

A few days after the exhumation of a 30-year-old story of domestic violence, the American Federation (US Soccer) decided to put Gregg Berhalter temporarily in the background. The day after this decision, the coach, whose contract with the team expired on December 31, told the Harvard Business Review his desire to remain in office despite the investigation.

The case in question had been revealed by the parents of Giovanni Reyna, Danielle and Claudio, former captain of Team USA and current sports director of the Austin club. They are furious that their son was publicly criticized after the World Cup in Qatar (elimination by the Netherlands in the round of 16, 1-3) after being designated as a substitute before the competition.

Berhalter acknowledges the facts and denounces blackmail

The coach had for his part denounced blackmail, while acknowledging having kicked his girlfriend Rosalind when he was 18, during an argument in 1991. Since then, the couple has married, has raised four children and still live together. Berhalter claimed to have consulted a psychologist after the incident, and to have never been violent again afterwards: The events of that night 31 years ago and the lessons learned from it laid the foundation for our relationship moving forward.”.

Regarding his duties, the technician said: “ When we started in 2018, we wanted to change the way the world views American football. And I think when you ask the world about our team, the world sees us in a completely different light. But now it’s about being able to take the next step, and that next step is to do something that no American team has ever done, get to the semis and see what happens next. So there are a lot of great challenges to face and of course, I would like to continue my mission. »

The selection was entrusted to his assistant Anthony Hudson. He will be in charge for the training camp scheduled for January, before friendly matches against Serbia on the 25th and Colombia on the 28th.
