St. Louis Hires Brazilian WNT Coach Barcellos

MOST COMMENTED

The St. Louis women's team due to start play in Women's Professional Soccer next spring has hired Brazilian women's team coach Jorge Barcellos to be its coach and general manager.

"We'll have a special look to the team with a lot of skill and creativity on the field," promised Jeff Cooper, the team's owner. "He coaches to encourage that creativity and plays a beautiful version of the field. He'll be completely in charge of player development, the recruiting of players and youth development. He'll have full reins from the beginning."

"My guess is he'll bring in some pretty good players from Brazil," Cooper said. "He knows those players from A to Z." Barcellos, who took the Brazilian women to an Olympic silver medal last week, wrote in his job application that his objective was to "establish a new style of American soccer that will be more exciting to both play and watch, with the true athleticism of the U.S. players and the creativity and excitement of the Brazilian style making it [a] very entertaining style of soccer."
