United States men’s national team interim head coach Anthony Hudson is currently in Europe to check on his players.
The coach is joined on his excursion by assistant B.J. Callaghan and scout Eric Laurie. There are over 30 Americans currently playing in Europe that have featured for the USMNT within the last year.
Hudson’s Euro trip may very well signify that the interim coach could be set to stay in the position through March.
The Yanks next have two Nations League matches set for the end of next month. These fixtures include a trip to Grenada and then a home game against El Salvador.
Previously an assistant with the USMNT, Hudson was given the reigns temporarily in January.
Gregg Berhalter’s contract ended following the 2022 World Cup, but a final decision on his future with the team is still somehow up in the air.
The imminent departure of the team’s sporting director Earnie Stewart will also certainly delay the naming of a new permanent manager.
Coach began series of matches on Friday
Hudson apparently started the trip by watching Darryl Dike face off against Auston Trusty on Friday.
Trusty’s Birmingham City ended up beating Dike’s West Brom on the night. Dike played a little over an hour in the match, while the defender played a full 90 minutes.
Leeds United’s matchup with Manchester United on Sunday will be Hudson’s next attended game. Brendan Aaronson, Tyler Adams, and Weston McKennie could all feature for the Whites when they host Manchester United on the day.
Hudson to meet with injured Pulisic on Sunday
According to the Daily Mail, Hudson has plans to meet with Christian Pulisic on Sunday as well. The injured star was not a part of the Chelsea team that drew with West Ham on Saturday.
Hudson’s journey will reportedly end with Chelsea’s Champions League matchup with Borussia Dortmund on Wednesday. Playmaker Gio Reyna currently plays for the German club.
USMNT assistant B.J. Callaghan is set to remain in the United Kingdom into next week. He will be in attendance to watch Josh Sargent, Antonee Robinson, Tim Ream, Zack Steffen, Malik Tillman, James Sands, Cameron Carter-Vickers, as well as the aforementioned Dike and Trusty one more time.
