  • Wynal¬≠da Accused of Call¬≠ing Teen a ‚ÄúBitch‚ÄĚ and Insult¬≠ing His Mother
  • Fight Broke Out Between Teams After Confrontation
  • Wynal¬≠da Denies Any Wrongdoing

For¬≠mer Unit¬≠ed States inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al Eric Wynal¬≠da has report¬≠ed¬≠ly been named in a bat¬≠tery report involv¬≠ing a teen after a fight broke out while he coached his son‚Äôs soc¬≠cer team.

The 54-year-old, who won 106 caps for the USMNT between 1990 and 2000, is accused of trad¬≠ing insults with a teen on the oppos¬≠ing team. Accord¬≠ing to a police report cit¬≠ed by TMZ, Wynal¬≠da called the boy a ‚Äėbitch‚Äô and insult¬≠ed his mother.

The coach, who is said to deny any wrong¬≠do¬≠ing, was at the cen¬≠ter of the ini¬≠tial alter¬≠ca¬≠tion. One oppo¬≠si¬≠tion play¬≠er admit¬≠ted to police he shoved Wynal¬≠da after they con¬≠front¬≠ed one anoth¬≠er, lead¬≠ing to a fight break¬≠ing out between the two teams.

The teen claimed he suf¬≠fered scratch¬≠es, though anoth¬≠er oppo¬≠si¬≠tion play¬≠er is unsure if it was Wynal¬≠da or a play¬≠er who caused the injury. Anoth¬≠er play¬≠er is also accused of throw¬≠ing the ball and strik¬≠ing Wynal¬≠da in the face.

The inci¬≠dent report¬≠ed¬≠ly began after Wynal¬≠da‚Äôs son was forced off the field fol¬≠low¬≠ing a bad tack¬≠le. Oppo¬≠si¬≠tion play¬≠ers are then accused of trash talk¬≠ing the father of six, who scored 34 goals dur¬≠ing his inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al career with the USMNT.

A par­ent is said to have called 911 to report the alter­ca­tion. Wynal­da, who has denied any wrong­do­ing, could now face poten­tial con­se­quences stem­ming from the bat­tery report filed with the Las Vegas police.

The for¬≠mer USMNT star‚Äôs involve¬≠ment in the inci¬≠dent marks a con¬≠cern¬≠ing off-field sit¬≠u¬≠a¬≠tion for the respect¬≠ed fig¬≠ure, who enjoyed a suc¬≠cess¬≠ful play¬≠ing career rep¬≠re¬≠sent¬≠ing his coun¬≠try on the inter¬≠na¬≠tion¬≠al stage.
