Before suiting up for New York City FC,
David Villa will play for newly branded Melbourne City FC

Image

City Football Group, which also owns New York City FC and Manchester City FC, purchased a majority ownership share in Melbourne City FC in January. Prior to the rebranding announcement, also on Wednesday, the club was previously known as Melbourne Heart FC, and finished in last place during the 2013-14 season.

The arrangement with Villa marks the first player movement between clubs in the ownership group. The release concerning the news does not indicate whether the move is officially a loan from NYCFC to Melbourne City, nor does it indicate a specific acquisition method for the striker, who is currently with the Spanish national team and will be going to the World Cup this month with La Roja.

John Hackworth relieved of Union team manager duties
Jim Curtin named interim

Image

Philadelphia Union announced today John Hackworth has been relieved of his duties as team manager. Union assistant coach Jim Curtin will take over as interim team manager effective immediately.

A native of Oreland, Pa., Curtin, 34, played over two hundred games for the Chicago Fire and was named an MLS All-Star and the Fire’s defender of the year in 2004. He helped the squad to two U.S. Open Cup titles in 2003 and 2006, as well as the 2003 MLS Supporters Shield. Curtin played his final two seasons in the League with Chivas USA before retiring in 2009.

“We are an ambitious club and although we are just in our fifth season we expect to win and be in the top tier of MLS. We have begun an ambitious and global search for a team manager who will help guide us to our goal of competing to win the MLS Cup,” said Philadelphia Union CEO & operating partner Nick Sakiewicz. “Philadelphia is a major market and we expect that there will be significant interest from a wide variety of qualified candidates to become Philadelphia Union’s team manager. We appreciate the work, time and efforts John Hackworth put into building the club and his influence on our youth academy. He is a first class person and we wish him the best in his future endeavors.”
