U.S. forward Christian Pulisic (24) described the bitter dispute between teammate Gio Reyna’s family and Gregg Berhalter as “childish” and said the former coach is “extremely unfortunate” to not still be in charge.
Berhalter,whose contract expired on December 31st, remains a candidate to be rehired.
Chelsea winger Pulisic also urged U.S. Soccer to speed up the coaching appointment to build on the team’s run to the World Cup last 16 under Berhalter.
“Do I feel like we should just wait and wait? I don’t think it’s necessary, because we are not in a phase like we were after not qualifying (for the 2018 World Cup) where we needed a complete rebuild,” Pulisic said.
“We don’t need a bunch of new guys coming in.”
Interim coach Anthony Hudson, who served as Berhlater’s assistant, named Pulisic and Reyna in his 24-man squad for this month’s CONCACAF Nations League matches against Grenada and El Salvador.
