The Ohio club are currently second-to-last in the Eastern Conference and the general manager had already paid for these failures in August. The decision did not have the desired effect on the pitch, with six of the last seven games ending in defeats.
“During our nearly two-month process to identify FC Cincinnati’s next GM, it was clear that a change of head coach was needed,” Berding said in a statement. Therefore, after much deliberation, the club made the decision to move forward without Jaap as head coach. ”
Therefore, Tyrone Marshall, who led the Under-19 roster, will take over, and the next GM will lead the hiring process to find a new driver.
“We believe a change in leadership is in the best interests of the club at the moment,” Berding continued. We are an ambitious club and we remain focused on achieving our goals, the first of which is to make Cincinnati a champion city. ”
Stam is the third head instructor to lose his job this season in Major League Soccer (MLS).
