Gregg Berhalter announced that he will retire following the conclusion of this season.

The 38-year-old defender played 18 professional seasons, 15 of which were in Europe. His most memorable game came against Germany in the 2002 World Cup, when Torsten Frings stopped Berhalter's potential game-tying goal with his hand.

Berhalter made 43 appearances for the National Team, and over 300 appearances from the Netherlands, to England, to Germany during a European career lasting from 1994 to 2009. During this time, he captained both Energie Cottbus and 1860 Munich. He then signed with the Los Angeles Galaxy where he will finish out his career as a player and assistant coach.

In 2010, Berhalter led the Galaxy defense to an all time best in goals allowed with 26, on the way to winning the Supporters Shield.

Berhalter says he plans to continue coaching in the future.

I too always respected the way Greg B. approached the game and he always went "all in" for the USMNT. Best Wishes and congrats on a tremendous career.

Too bad he peaked so late in his career. Could have truly been an asset to the national team.

Nothin' but respect for Gregg. He started his career back when Americans were rare in European leagues. The fact he captained Cottbus & 1860 is proof enough of his quality and character.

Thanks for your contribution Greg! Always respected your tactical sense and work-ethic. Good luck with whatever you do next.
