The New England Revolution’s head coach, Bruce Arena, has resigned from his position as the club’s manager in Major League Soccer.
The man, who is 71 years old, was put on administrative leave at the beginning of this month while the Major League Soccer (MLS) investigated the allegations that he had made remarks that were “insensitive and inappropriate.”
There has been no public disclosure of any specific information on the charges.
Arena, who had served as manager of the United States team, said that he “made some mistakes.”
He continued by saying, “Moving forward, I intend to spend some time reflecting on this circumstance and taking corrective steps to address what has occurred.”
“And while this has not been an easy decision to make, I am confident that it is in the best interest of both the New England Revolution organization and my family that we part ways at this time,” he said. “And while this has not been an easy decision to make, it has been an easy decision.”
Due to the fact that the inquiry “confirmed certain of these allegations,” the Major League Soccer (MLS) stated that Arena would be required to present a petition to the League Commissioner in order for him to be considered for another role in the league in the future.
Arena, the most successful coach in the history of the United States, was in command of the men’s national team on two separate occasions, first from 1998 to 2006 and then from 2016 to 2017.
He has won the MLS Cup five times and been named the MLS Coach of the Year four times during his career with the LA Galaxy, DC United, New York Red Bulls, and the New England Revolution.
The Patriots of New England announced that they had accepted Arena’s resignation and stated, “We wish Bruce well and thank him for his contributions to the team.”
