SA’s Carnell gets head coaching job in the MLS second tier

South African coach Bradley Carnell is moving things for himself abroad. The former Orlando Pirates assistant coach has been named the head coach at St Louis City FC in Major League Soccer.

Carmell also revealed that his role will include helping the club’s scouting network across the globe, including South Africa.

“I’m excited about the opportunity to head up St Louis City. It’s a new expansion team in the MLS,” he said via Soccer Laduma.

“The style of play that we are adopting speaks to the community out here in the Midwest. There are a lot of firsts here. It’s almost like giving birth to a child. There is this blank canvas now and you can build it from the ground up,” he added.

Meanwhile, the new season is scheduled to kick off in February.
