For BVB star Giovanni Reina (20), the time after the World Cup is more exciting than the actual tournament…
BVB star and American boy Giovanni Reyna is now commenting on Instagram about the allegations revealed by an article published by The Athletic. According to the portal, Rina was about to be fired by the Americans because the BVB professional was more apathetic than thirsty for work.
Reyna on Instagram: “I wish I had not spoken at the World Cup. I believe that things that happen in the team should be kept confidential. However, statements have been made that do not reflect my professionalism and personality, so I feel the need to make a brief statement.”
Then he admitted that just before the tournament, American coach Greg Berhalter (49) told him that his role in the largest football tournament in the world in Qatar would be limited.
The BVB professional writes: “I am someone who plays with pride and passion. Football is my life and I believe in my abilities. I fully expected that and was eager to contribute to a talented group match as we tried to make a statement at the World Cup.”
The 20-year-old then felt “broken” and the disappointment could have had an impact on his coaching performance. Only after he apologized to US coach Berhalter and the other “American soccer boys” did his anger at Berhalter’s announcement evaporate.
“I apologized to my team-mates and my coach for this and was told I had forgiven. After that I let go of my disappointment and gave everything I had on and off the field,” Dortmunder continued in the “Justification Job.”
However, he also criticizes the internal team members for leaking it to the media. “I am disappointed that this issue has continued to be reported (as well as some very fictional versions of events) and very surprised that someone from Team USA men is contributing to this. Problems that arise with the team always remain “at home,” Coach Berhalter said. So we can focus on team units and progress.”

After the United States lost in the World Cup to the Netherlands in the round of 16 (1: 3), the well-known sports portal “Athletic” revealed that Rina is about to be expelled from the US national team.
Accordingly, the youngster showed an alarming lack of commitment ahead of the United States’ first game of the World Cup, including a friendly against Qatari club Al-Gharafa on November 17.
During this practice game, he is said to have wandered onto the field frustrating his teammates. USA wasn’t sure if the attacking midfielder wanted to protect himself from injury or was just frustrated. It is also said that Reina got rid of leg guards in the Wales game when it was clear he would not be a substitute.
As a result, many experienced American players sought direct contact with Rina. It seemed that the situation was getting worse.
According to the report, the BVB star explicitly apologized before a video session and made it clear that he belongs in the collective. His colleagues would forgive him after that. Reina was rewarded for his improved behavior with a 45-minute effort in the round of 16 against the Netherlands (1:3), but was unable to avoid defeat. Previously, he had only played seven minutes against England.
