Óscar Pareja is being considered to lead the U.S. men’s national soccer team.
The news was first reported by aldiadallas.com, who spoke to three sources with knowledge of the situation.
The FC Dallas coach was interviewed this weekend in Vancouver, British Columbia, by representatives of U.S. Soccer, per that report.
Representatives of U.S. Soccer did not comment on the interview.
FC Dallas released a statement to aldiadallas.com on Monday saying, “The entire FC Dallas organization, including Oscar Pareja and his coaching staff, is solely focused on finishing the MLS regular season strong and putting us in the best position possible for a long playoff run.”
Last month, Earnie Stewar, who took over the head coaching search, told Sports Illustrated that he expects to have a decision made before the end of this 2018.
FC Dallas currently occupies first place in Major League Soccer’s Western Conference standings. They are also close to clinching an MLS Cup playoff berth.
