This makes sense.
This does not. Because he's no longer on board. Whether he's coaching the UK women's team or the Canadian men's team, the end result is the same - they lost him from the women's program. It's a loss either way. If they had always wanted to hire him for the men's team, they would have when they hired Zambrano.
Herdman may end up being a failure but the whole conspiracy against Zambrano is simply not logical. Obviously Zambrano didn't fit, regardless of whether that was his fault or the CSA's.
