The United States men’s national soccer team is in a bit of disarray right now, and former USMNT forward Taylor Twellman is fed up.
During a recent spot on Alexi Lalas’ State of the Union podcast, an exasperated Twellman begged the program to leave no stone unturned in their search for a new manager.
Currently, Anthony Hudson is serving as the interim manager after Gregg Berhalter’s contract expired following the World Cup. The program is also missing a general manager and sporting director.
“I said this when they hired Berhalter, I would have interviewed 100 people. I found out they interviewed two.”
With the World Cup coming to American soil in 2026, they need to make a decision sooner rather than later, but silly talks about soccer culture in the USA keep getting in the way.
“Why is the United States any different than anywhere else? You’re telling me right now, Pep Guardiola, if he was really interested, could come here and he couldn’t figure out the ‘special’ American way of the national team?”
It seems unlikely that the USMNT will make a big splash on the managerial front, but Twellman is making a lot of sense.
