All USMNT players in Serie A for the 2021/2022 season
The Americans play in the Italian league, and that’s something to be excited about, this season will mark the most American players to play in Serie A.
A long time ago, over 27 years to be exact, Alexi Lalas became the first USMNT player to play in series A when he adapted for Padua. In 2011, it was Michael Bradley’s turn to play in the prestigious Italian league playing for Chievo and Roma. Defender Oguchi Onyewu was on AC Milan’s books for a few years but never made a league appearance.
Now things have changed and the Italian teams are looking to the United States for new talent, and this may be due to how much Weston McKennie was a success for Juventus. This season, American fans will be able to watch Serie A on CBS Sports and three clubs will host 4 American players.
Who are these players? Below is the list of USMNT stars who will play in one of the most difficult and exciting leagues in the world, the Italian Serie A.
Weston McKennie is back for his second full season at Juventus, McKennie was a home runner signing 34 games and scoring 5 goals. The American’s pace of work is what fans immediately embraced, but McKennie has dramatically improved his cast and box-to-box work. McKennie will see some significant playing time this season for Juventus and fans will be glued to their seats to watch one of the poster boys of this generation of USMNT players.
The former FC Dallas right-back was sold to Roma last season and has appeared in 5 games. Look for him to continue his evolution in Roma. Reynolds could be loaned to another team for the team’s opening minutes. Bryan reynolds will have to make the most of the chances he gets.
Gianluca Busio just won the 2021 Gold Cup with USMNT and was transferred to Serie A as he was on the radar of various teams. Venezia FC pulled the trigger and signed Busio at $ 6.5 million. Busio will certainly see some important minutes for Venezia.
Out of left field came the transfer of Leatherworker Tessmann to Venise ! Another FC Dallas product, Tessmann, will compete for a few minutes in midfield. Tessmann has only played 26 games in MLS and has 1 selection for the USMNT.
