Jim McGuinness has been sacked as Head Coach of the Charlotte Independence after just 14 games in charge.
The former Donegal manager – who led his county to the All-Ireland title in 2012 – only took over with Charlotte Independence in December.
He only won one game during his time in the USL Championship, drawing six and losing seven. The side are currently in 17th place out of 18 and they had not tasted victory since mid-April.
The club confirmed this afternoon that McGuinness has left the club..
“Jim McGuinness has improved our club in many ways, including bringing talent to our roster and instituting new training methodologies – both of which we hope to continue moving forward,” said Jim McPhilliamy, Independence President and Managing Partner.
“As a club, our performance is measured on the pitch and collectively, we’ve fallen short. On behalf of ownership, front office and team, the Charlotte Independence organization thanks Coach McGuinness for his service to the club.”
