Sorry for the late FKs! I was at the DC Scores: One Night, One Goal event last night and got home late. It’s a pretty cool event, if you ever get a chance to go.
Former D.C. United player and current assistant coach Frédéric Brillant got his A-Senior Coaching License from U.S. Soccer yesterday. Could be good timing! (Just kidding. I do not care to speculate about D.C. United’s coaching search.)
Speaking of coaches, Wayne Rooney reportedly rejected an offer from current boss Garry Cook to coach in Saudi Arabia. It’s not clear from the article when the offer was made. Cook became executive president and CEO of the Saudi league in January.
In addition to going to the Pan American games, Ted Ku-DiPietro was named to the MLS 22 under 22.
After his ouster by the Spanish federation, Jorge Vilda has been hired to coach the Morocco women’s national team. This pretty much sucks. The guy stood with a man accused of harassing one of his own players, and now he’ll have a whole new team of women he can fail to protect.
In case you missed it, Sarah got the inside scoop on the dismissal of a tax fraud case against D.C. United Jason Levien. The former United general counsel who filed has apologized to the Office of Attorney General for filing it?!? Crazy stuff.
The regular season wraps up this weekend for both Washington Spirit and Loudoun United. The Spirit are at home and vying for a playoff spot, so I highly recommend checking the game out if you’re looking for something to do on Sunday.
