Charlotte FC fires head coach Miguel Ángel Ramírez and three others on the coaching staff, the club announced Monday morning.
After a 2-1 loss to the Seattle Sounders Sunday, Sporting Director Zoran Krneta and President Joe LaBue informed coach Ramírez that he will not continue the remainder of the 2022 season.
Assistant Coach Christian Lattanzio will serve as Interim Head Coach.
“This is a difficult decision, but one we feel is best for the team at this time,” said Owner David Tepper. “I want to thank Miguel and his staff for their hard work during our first season and wish them the best in their future endeavors.”
The club also fired Assistant Coach Mikel Antía, Head Fitness Coach Cristobal Fuentes Nieto, and First Team Video Analyst Luis Piedrahita along with Ramirez.
“We appreciate the contributions of Miguel and his staff to our Club, and wish them well moving forward in their careers,” said Charlotte FC Sporting Director Zoran Krneta. “We are excited about this opportunity for Christian. He is a very experienced coach who has made a tremendous impact on our squad this season.”
Ramírez joined the club almost a year ago. He leaves with a 5-8-1 record in 14 league games this season while also advancing to the Round of 16 in the U.S. Open Cup.
Charlotte FC’s next game is June 11 at home against the New York Red Bulls.
