Sporting Director Zoran Krneta and President Joe LaBue delivered the pink slip to Ramírez. Assistant Coach Christian Lattanzio will take over and Goalkeeper Coach Andy Quy will remain, but Charlotte FC announced some big departures who will follow Charlotte FC’s coach out the door: Assistant Coach Mikel Antía, Head Fitness Coach Cristobal Fuentes Nieto, and First Team Video Analyst Luis Piedrahita.
Charlotte FC is still within striking distance of the playoffs, making this a confusing decision during the international break. Charlotte FC has certainly exceeded expectations this year, making the mid-year decision even more confusing.
