Swedish press: Backe is done
October 11, 2012
Yes, Hans Backe is a lame duck. The "Clever" coach confirmed to Swedish media that he is leaving RBNY after the season. "My contract runs out and I have not heard anything, so I will be moving home in December," he told SportExpressen.se.
So long, "Clever" Hans... And yes, the timing of these decisions, with two games left in the regular season to be followed by potential playoffs, is beyond ridiculous.
Update: Backe has refuted the quote on MLSsoccer.com. "Don't trust them too much," he told the league's website. When asked if his future was decided, he answered, "No, no, no, no, not at all. Absolutely not."
