The U.S. boss says that he believes that Musah does see remaining with the U.S. as a good thing for his development

Gregg Berhalter,

U.S

. national team coach, believes

Yunus Musah

feels comfortable with the team as he hopes that the talented player is eager to stay with the U.S. despite interest from

England

.

Musah started his first USMNT camp on Monday. He played 76 minutes in a 6-2 win over

Panama

.

Musah played for England at the youth level and he shined in both matches. His performance was great alongside

Weston McKennie

and

Tyler Adams

to offer Berhalter a glimpse at what may just have been his first-choice midfield.

Gareth Southgate

stated that he is looking forward to persuading Musah to rejoin England in the future.

Meanwhile, Berhalter hopes that Musah would remain with the U.S., saying that he believes that Musah has already started to fit with the group.

"I didn't read any of [Southgate's] comments but I was really happy with Yunus' performance. I'm really happy with him and camp, the guys really took to him well," Berhalter said on Monday after the USMNT's win.

"All I've ever said about players in his category is that all we want to do is create an environment for them, that they want to be in, that they trust is a good environment for the development. And it seemed like that was the case for Yunus. 

"It seems like he sees us as a pathway to continue to develop and play with a good young group, but in the end, it's going to be him and his family that decide and we're here for him to answer any question, but it's going to be him that decides."
