BVB, News: Reyna causes noise in the US team

US trainer Gregg Berhalter had explained the few minutes with an injury to the BVB star. “He’s a member of this team that we care about and that we know can help the team. It’s about when he can help us and how he can help us,” Berhalter said at a press conference.

According to ex-Bundesliga professional Eric Wynalda, however, this is not true. Opposite of LA Times the former player of 1. FC Saarbrücken and VfL Bochum raises serious allegations against Berhalter. According to Wynalda, he deliberately did not let Reyna play.

“Reyna was fit to [gegen Wales] to play. Berhalter lied to the media saying it was an injury. Even his own teammates want to see him on the field. There seems to be an internal dispute with coach Gregg Berhalter,” said Wynalda. He personally learned this from a conversation with Reyna’s father Claudio.

Berhalter has already responded to the allegations, but firmly denies a rift with Reyna. “I’m just not like that. I don’t represent that. So if you want to take Eric’s word or my word or whatever, feel free to do so, but I know what happened.”
