United States forward Christian Pulisic told ESPN the team does not need to make wholesale changes as it looks for a new head coach and said the controversy surrounding Gregg Berhalter and the Reyna family has been "extremely childish."

Berhalter has been allowed to remain as a candidate for the vacant U.S. men's national team job following an independent investigation by the U.S. Soccer Federation, which found that both Berhalter and his wife, Rosalind, accurately portrayed the nature of a 1992 domestic incident.

Pulisic said Berhalter has been "extremely unfortunate" to no longer be the U.S. head coach after his contract was not renewed after the 2022 World Cup.

"I'm not here to appoint the next manager -- it's not my job -- and whoever it is I'm going to play and give it 100%," Pulisic told ESPN's Graham Hunter in a wide-ranging interview at his home in London.
