Gregg Berhalter insists he is not feeling any extra pressure being one of the only American coaches in European football.The 39-year old former Crystal Palace, Energie Cottbus and LA Galaxy defender has the reins at Hammarby IF in Sweden’s second division and although he is somewhat of a pioneer for Americans, he does not feel like he has to bring anything extra to the coaching caper because he is from the USA.”I don’t see [being the only American manager in Europe] as pressure,” Berhalter told MLSsoccer.com following his debut season in charge.”I just see it as doing a job. I put a lot of effort into it and a lot of preparation, and I don’t associate me being an American with pressure.“There’s pressure with the job, because you’re in Stockholm at Hammarby, a big club with intense fans, and they need to get promoted. But I don’t think it’s from being an American.”Berhalter, who led Hammarby to a fourth-place finish in the Swedish Superettan in his debut season, also sees people like him moving to Europe to coach is a great opportunity to showcase American players abroad.”I think that we represent an interesting concept for an American player that wants to go abroad,” he added.”He can come abroad and play for an American coach. So you have the familiarity of that, and the communication level that comes with that, and then [Hammarby] represents a stepping stone for that player to then go to other leagues throughout Europe if they do well.“Because we have scouts from Germany, Holland, England in our stands every week, as Sweden is a selling league.” The game is about opinions.
