  • Octavio Zambrano to be named men's manager

    Duane Rollins

    Former LA Galaxy and MetroStars manager Octavio Zambrano will be named Canadian men's national team head coach on Friday.

    The news was first reported in the Italian source, GazzoMercato. Anthony Totera reported this morning that the new hire would be Ecuadorian.

    It's thought that Javier Livia will be Zambrano's chief assistant.  

    Zambrano has a .587 career MLS winning percentage as a manager, second to Bruce Arena all-time. He most recently managed El Nacional in Ecuador.

    • Did Miami want to keep him and he chose another avenue?
    • Liam strikes me as the type of player that might have difficulty on the cow patches in Jamaica or sub zero weather, but would be an invaluable asset on the pristine pitches of Qatar . We have yet to see the best of him in CanMNT jersey
    • I think you are totally ignoring last season with Miami to suit your narrative.  The guy is probably good enough to be an MLS veterNlan/journeyman 
    • You can't judge youth players by an international tournament where they had 0 camp/preparation prior it. No chemistry. No tactics.    You should judge your federación instead.
    • Fun! Amazing to think they lasted 27 years. Believe it or not, Barry Bonds played there. I started going to games at the Nat in 1986 as a youngster. I don't remember seeing Hawai'i, but do remember all those other PCL clubs, including the Edmonton Trappers and Calgary Cannons. Sadly, it sounds like Vancouver is Canada's only remaining minor league club.
    • Again he just might not be good enough for these levels to get consistent minutes. Not every player that is Canadian is going to work out at these levels unfortunately. Hey don’t get me wrong I hope he can prove me wrong and become a starter in the MLS or any league or even a higher level league and be a starter in Qatar . I’m just going by his playing history at these levels . Moreover, Jay if you read these boards prove this old fart wrong and keep going all power to you.
    • Indeed, the Hawaii Islanders - watched them at Nat Bailey vs the Cs many times in the early 80s (along with the Albuquerque Dukes, Tucson Toros and other vintage PCL teams). 
    • Adekugbe starting for Hatayspor v Trabzonspor
    • It's usually described as semi-pro and that means PLSQ clubs can sign players to the same professional registration forms MLS or CanPL clubs would use. That's what makes that level different from a provincial amateur league like the OSL or LSEQ where only amateur registration forms can be used. 
    • Northern Futbol is a good entry point to Canadian soccer- you have to keep in mind that these guys will cover about a dozen+ leagues per episode, obscure prospects, women, youth, etc., so while you should always get your info right, I think it’s permissible for them to make a couple errors here and there or forget about a player, like this guy, who apparently no one in Canada knew existed until like last week, because there’s just so much to talk about and these guys are doing it DIY. Until soccer is big enough for these guys to be able to do this full time, then I think we have to appreciate what they do for what it is.
