WHAT HAPPENED? Berhalter left the USMNT after the World Cup as U.S. Soccer opened an investigation into a domestic violence incident. Berhalter has always remained in contention to return as head coach and Weah believes it would be the correct decision.

WHAT THEY SAID: "Gregg has really kept us together... we are definitely a family and no one can take that away, you know," he said. "Gregg really helped us form this type of relationship with each other, so yeah, he was huge, huge important part of this team so hopefully, yeah hopefully comes back."

THE BIGGER PICTURE: No decision has been made regarding the new permanent head coach of the USMNT. Anthony Hudson took charge on a temporary basis but has since been replaced by B.J. Callaghan for the upcoming CONCACAF Nations League and Gold Cup matches.
