Berhalter: Wants to stay US coach, ‘heart aches’ for wife

CAMBRIDGE, Mass. (AP) — Gregg Berhalter says he wants to remain as the coach of the U.S. men’s national soccer team through the 2026 World Cup. He also says that he wants to move forward from the disclosure he kicked a woman in 1991 who later became his wife. The remarks came at a Harvard Business Review event on Thursday. Danielle Reyna, a former American player who was the college roommate of Berhalter’s future wife informed the U.S. Soccer Federation of the incident on Dec. 11. Berhalter had made remarks at a leadership conference that were critical of 20-year-old player Gio Reyna, the son of Danielle and former U.S. captain Claudio Reyna. The USSF launched an investigation.
