Los Angeles FC head coach Steve Cherundolo is amongst a 10-man shortlist to be the next manager of the USMNT.
According to Fox Sports reporter Doug McIntyre, new U.S Soccer sporting director Matt Crocker has spoken to more than 10 candidates, from a wide variety of backgrounds and nationalities including former American international Cherundolo, who led LAFC to the MLS Supporters’ Shield and their first MLS Cup in the club’s short history last year.

Also on the US Soccer Federation’s shortlist to become interim head coach B.J Callaghan’s long-term successor is former Barcelona and Spain boss Luis Enrique, ex-Arsenal and France legend Patrick Viera, who spent two and a half years managing New York City FC, and his former Gunners teammate Thierry Henry who is seen as a more left-field approach.
Since retiring after his four-year stint playing for MLS side New York Red Bulls, Henry has established himself as a star in the States, first as a manager for Montreal Impact between 2019 and 2021 and now as a lead pundit for CBS’ coverage of the Champions League.
