TFC Trying to Rebound Quickly From Carver's Resignation

MOST COMMENTED

"We sat down with the coaches the other night after [John Carver] had handed in his resignation and it was difficult," said Mo Johnston, TFC's manager and director of soccer. "We weren't happy campers but it's started to sink in. It's started to settle in. ... We need to put the era of John Carver behind us and move forward."

Carver, who has led the Reds since the start of the 2008 season, announced his resignation to the team on Saturday, leaving many of the players stunned. "It was tough because I'm very close to him and because he was like one of the boys," TFC midfielder Carl Robinson said. "He was a player's manager. But he's decided to move on and he has his reasons why."

Robinson would not elaborate on the reasons, although the Newcastle Sunday Sun reported he may be headed back to an assistant coaching job with Newcastle United, which is second-last in the English Premier League.

Despite the fresh news, TFC managed to defeat the Kansas City Wizards 1-0 on Sunday under the management of its two assistant coaches, Chris Cummins and Nick Dasovic.
