Minnesota United today announced the club has restructured a portion of its sporting staff. Sporting Director Manny Lagos will be named Chief Soccer Officer and will continue to oversee the Minnesota United sporting department. Assistant Coach Mark Watson will be named Technical Director and will oversee all First Team roster duties. Additionally, Head Athletic Trainer Stacey Hardin will be the Senior Director of Player Heath and Performance.
“When we entered MLS in 2017, our first priorities were the development and foundation of our first team roster and the construction and opening of Allianz Field. Having successfully achieved those objectives, we felt it was important to restructure parts of our sporting department in order to continue to grow and evolve as a club,” said MNUFC CEO Chris Wright.
