Report: Jurgen Klopp declines USMNT interest to replace Gregg Berhalter; potential candidates for USA soccer coaching position discussed

Top Managerial Candidates to Replace Gregg Berhalter as USMNT Coach

The United States Soccer Federation is on the hunt for a new coach for the men’s national team after parting ways with coach Gregg Berhalter following the team’s early exit from the Copa America tournament. The search took an interesting turn when Jurgen Klopp, the former Liverpool boss, turned down the opportunity to take on the role.

With Klopp out of the picture, U.S. Soccer technical director Matt Crocker is now tasked with finding the right person to lead the team into the 2026 World Cup, which will be held on home soil. While attracting top-notch managers like Emma Hayes for the women’s team has been successful, the men’s job still poses challenges in terms of attracting top talent.

A range of potential candidates is being considered for the position, from experienced international coaches like Joachim Low and Herve Renard to successful MLS coaches like Wilfried Nancy and Jim Curtin. The search also extends to American coaches like Bruce Arena and up-and-coming talents like Ruben Selles.

The decision on who will take the helm of the USMNT is crucial as the team looks to rebuild and strategize for future success. Stay tuned for updates as the search for the new head coach continues.
