'The sky's the limit' - Gregg Berhalter on his USMNT return, repairing relationships & what he learned from the last World Cup

It's now official: Gregg Berhalter is back. Reports swirled before and during the U.S. men's national team's lopsided Nations League win over Mexico and, less than 24 hours later, Berhalter sat on a stage next to U.S. Soccer leadership for his unveiling, or re-unveiling, as USMNT head coach.

The process to get here certainly took a while, longer than any would have expected. Six months ago, this scenario seemed totally impossible given the controversies, and those controversies were addressed during Friday afternoon's introduction.

The first question Berhalter was asked centered around Gio Reyna and his plans to repair the relationship that became broken during the World Cup. Berhalter detailed those plans, saying that he still believes that Reyna will be a gamechanger with the group.

It was one of several notable comments from the newly-hired but returning USMNT head coach as the program can now truly begin the 2026 World Cup cycle.
