Charlotte FC appoint Miguel Angel Ramirez as inaugural coach

Major League Soccer’s newest expansion club Charlotte FC announced Miguel Angel Ramirez as the inaugural head coach ahead of their 2022 debut.

Ramirez is set to join the American side after coaching Brazilian club Porto Alegre International in 2021. Prior to his experience in Brazil, he led Ecuadorian club Independiente del Valle for two seasons during which he lifted the Copa Sudamericana titled months into the job. Charlotte took notice of his work in South America after their head coach hunt kicked off in December 2019. 

“He was wanted by half of the big Latin American clubs after he won the Copa Sudamericana,” Charlotte sporting director Zoran Krneta told the MLS website.

“He had offers from Europe and other clubs in the world…he’s a big upcoming coaching star. We realized this is someone we need to seriously look at and put through the process and we did put him through the same process as everybody else and he just did fantastically well.”
