San Francisco Chronicle Interview with Eric Wynalda

Eric Wynalda looking to reform U.S. soccer system

U.S. Soccer is a mess. Eric Wynalda wants to fix it.

“I have been operating under the assumption for the last 20 years that it was going to happen, that it was going to get better,” Wynalda said last week, “and it’s not.”

“We have a soccer problem in this country.”

Which is why Wynalda is running for the presidency of the U.S. Soccer Federation, hoping to unseat entrenched leader Sunil Gulati in February. Wynalda thinks he’ll win.

“Of course, I do,” he said.
