Will Carlos Cordeiro make another run for U.S. Soccer Federation president?

The former USSF president is considering another shot at the position, ESPN reported on Tuesday afternoon.

ESPN reporters Caitlin Murray and Jeff Carlisle reported that several sources said that Cordeiro was learning in that direction. One source said that Cordeiro already had made up his mind.

Cindy Parlow Cone, the current USSF president, announced in August that she was going to run again. The election is set for the USSF annual general meeting in Atlanta in March.

Nominations for the position need to be received by the federation by 1 a.m. Wednesday. Cordeiro has received several nominations from USSF membership, ESPN said.

Elected USSF president in 2018, Cordeiro resigned in controversy in March 2020 after a backlash to federation court filings relating to the equal pay lawsuit filed by the U.S. women’s national team. Current and former players on the men’s and women’s national teams called the USSF filings sexist.

Cone, then vice president, replaced Cordeiro.
