Sven Sacked, Celades Cleared to Play
Well we said today was going to be busy. A source told me earlier today Sven Goran Eriksson would be sacked by Mexico at the next FMF Board meeting, April 27th, but it appears to have been done already according to Soccernet. Mexico was destroyed last night by Honduras, losing 3-1 in a match which felt more like a 5-0 scoreline was appropriate.
Last August, I penned a column predicting that Sven’s tenure at Mexico was a “ticking time bomb.” I’m not always right, but sometimes my thoughts are prophetic.
In another big piece of news Spain World Cup veteran and former FC Barca and Real Madrid defender Albert Celades has officially joined the Red Bulls. This is a very good signing. Just two seasons ago, I saw Celadas play very well for Real Zaragoza.
By the way I did not miss the FC New York announcement in USL but will wait until tomorrow to discuss it as today has been a crazy day in the football world here in North America.
On this whirlwind of a day you can be rest assured I will be back with more news later.
