The United States national team has been without a coach since January 1 this year. The federation has not decided to extend the contract of Gregg Berhalter, who has been working with the team since 2018. It’s the aftermath of a scandal. It’s about that. The event from years ago was reported by the mother of Giovanni Reyna as revenge for the fact that the coach wanted to throw his son out of the team. For the time being, Berhalter’s assistant, Anthony Hudson, took over the duties of the coach, but it is possible that the USA will look for Berhalter’s successor on a permanent basis.
Marcelo Bielsa will work as a coach again? He is a candidate for the US team
The American “Telemundo Desportes” reports that Marcelo Bielsa could become the new head coach of the United States. The American federation authorities are interested in Bielsa because of his preferred style of play, characterized by a high percentage of ball possession and high pressing. For now, it is not known whether Bielsa would be interested in working in such a role, because he enjoys a lot of attention in the market. According to “Telemundo”, another candidate for the US team would be Portuguese Jose Mourinho, who manages Roma.
So far, Marcelo Bielsa has mainly been tried on. According to the latest information from ESPN, the authorities of the Mexican federation withdrew from such an idea and will choose a coach from the duo of candidates Guillermo Almada (Pachuca) – Miguel Herrera (ex Tigres). Previously, Bielsa had been linked with Everton following the sacking of Frank Lampard, but the idea fell through as the Argentine wanted to take up the job only in the summer.
Marcelo Bielsa has been out of work since February 2022, when he left Leeds United after nearly four years on the job. Previously, the Argentine coach was responsible for the results of Lille, Olympique Marseille, Athletic Bilbao and the Argentina national team. Bielsa worked with the Chilean national team from 2007 to 2011 and led them to the 2010 World Cup in South Africa. There, Chile advanced out of the group, but were eliminated in the round of 16 after losing 3-0 to Brazil.
