Bruce Arena failed to guide the United States to a qualification for the 2018 World Cup after he took over for Jurgen Klinsmann. The United States had lost their first two qualification matches under Klinsmann before the manager change.
“Obviously, I have no interest in going on a four-year cycle right now” to the 2022 World Cup, said Arena, 66. “I’ll do whatever is right. That is the approach I am going to take.”
Arena and USSF President Sunil Gulati were on the team charter Wednesday, and “we talked about things,” Arena said. “We know where everything is at, the status of things. We’re all on the same page. We’ll talk again.”
The United States fell from third to fifth in the six-nation qualifying group with their loss to Trinidad and Tobago.
