What They're Saying: Gregg Berhalter

“His capacity is huge. His speed is huge. His quickness is very good. And what I like now that he’s doing at Red Bull is he’s taking the ball and he’s penetrating with the ball and he’s trying to break lines with the ball dribbling, and then as passes open up, as he’s closed down, he’s able to find that pass between the lines. And that’s been a new element to his game.”
