American Outlaws and USMNT supporter groups publicly call for Gregg Berhalter’s firing

The American Outlaws Gregg Berhalter statement released on Wednesday illustrated the United States men’s national team head coach’s loss of support from fans and media.

Several U.S. Soccer supporters’ groups have publicly called for a head coaching change. Barra 76 were one of the first groups to release a statement on Tuesday.

“We believe replacing Gregg Berhalter as head coach of the USMNT is essential to revitalizing our national team’s strategy and achieving the results our players and supporters deserve,” Barra 76 said.

The American Outlaws, the largest U.S. Soccer supporters’ group, echoed those thoughts on Wednesday.

“There needs to be accountability and a plan to move forward for the USMNT. It’s time to make a change in the head coaching position,” American Outlaws said.

Statements like these from official supporters’ groups will put pressure on the United States Soccer Federation which is set to have a “comprehensive review” about the USMNT and how the team “fell short of expectations” in Copa América.

The USSF re-hired Berhalter as head coach in June 2023 after being in charge from 2018 through the 2022 World Cup. If the federation again chooses to keep Berhalter on as head coach, there might be riots among the USMNT community.
