The New England Revolution have officially parted ways with head coach Jay Heaps after six seasons. The Revolution sit in 8th place in the Eastern Conference, with 10 wins, 14 losses, and 5 draws, and have had a rough pair of defeats in the last several days that shot down any chance of making the playoffs. On September 13, it was a 7-0 demolition at the hands of Atlanta United, and on the 16th, New England continued its abysmal away record with a 3-1 defeat in Kansas City. Assistant coach Tom Soehn will finish out the season as interim head coach.
Dani Alves has spoken out, calling for unity after he played a part in the Neymar-Edinson Cavani free kick drama in Paris Saint-Germain’s win over Olympique Lyon. On the play, Alves was holding the ball before a free kick, and Cavani was trying to get it from him so he could take the kick. Alves prevented Cavani from taking the ball before putting it behind his back and giving it to Neymar. Manager Unai Emery has also come out and said that Cavani and Neymar need to sort it out themselves, and Adrien Rabiot has said there is no trouble in the locker room.
Bayern Munich will be without their star goalkeeper, as Manuel Meuer has been ruled out until January following surgery on a broken foot. He fractured his left metatarsal in training, which is the same foot that he injured against Real Madrid in the Champions League that kept him out for the remainder of the season. Sven Ulreich is expected to take his spot.
Jurgen Klopp, with his club’s Carabao Cup opener against Leicester City on Tuesday, has said he believes his squad has the strength in depth to compete in four competitions. He has insisted that just because he is using a rotation of players, giving some players time in the Carabao Cup that would not get time otherwise, that does not mean he is not taking the competition seriously.
