Tuesday’s football news kicks off with a new manager in Montreal. The club promoted assistant Wilfried Nancy, who has held this role since the 2016 MLS season. Nancy started as a trainer at the Montreal Academy in 2011, a year before joining MLS. The move comes as a surprise to a club with the over-ambitious ambition that led to the hiring and renaming of Thierry Henry.
“I am very happy and proud to take on this new challenge,” said Nancy in the press release announcing the move. “It’s even more special because it’s with the club I’ve known since I came to Montreal. I want to thank Joey Saputo, Kevin Gilmore, and Olivier Renard. I’m really looking forward to this challenge and hope that the team will advance as far as possible. “
Nancy will start her first MLS season in Fort Lauderdale. Along with the rest of the Canadian MLS teams, Montreal is moving temporarily to avoid the 14-day quarantine required to re-enter the country. Until that situation changes, Montreal will share the Inter Miami Stadium.
“I would like to thank Inter Miami CF for the welcome,” said Olivier Renard, Montreal Sporting Director. “Just like in New Jersey last year with the Red Bulls, we will have access to first-class infrastructure and favorable weather, which is why we chose Florida. It’s going to be a very special situation again and we want our players to be in the best possible conditions before they play in Montreal again. We will do everything in our power to ensure that the players and staff can be supported by their families, so that they can also feel comfortable outside of their home country. “
Christian Pulisic moved to the Premier League and moved in the 90th minute after Chelsea’s 2-0 win against Everton at Stamford Bridge. An own goal opened the gate in the 31st minute when Jorginho converted a penalty in the 65th minute. Edouard Mendy made a save to keep the clean sheet.
“Maybe Christian’s problem is that I know from Dortmund how strong he is from the bench,” said Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel, saying that he did not start Pulisic. “I think he only started in the cup game and in the end it’s my responsibility and my fault. It’s a bit unfair because I know the effects it can have in 20 or 30 minutes. He’s been a bit unlucky in the last few games but there is no lack of confidence or quality. He just has to be a little patient. “
Bobby Wood was on the bench in the 1-1 draw against Holstein Kiel in the 2nd Bundesliga. After the 8th minute, Simon Terodde equalized in the 23rd minute. Hamburg is in 3rd place in the table, three points behind 2nd place Holstein Kiel and five points behind leaders Bochum after 24 games.
