Columbus coach Sigi Schmid
, who said after Wednesday's loss to Real Salt Lake that perhaps he should resign, will stay in charge of the Crew, which is 4-11-8 and on a 13-game winless streak
in Schmid's first year at its helm.
"It was my frustration with how things went," Schmid told the Columbus Dispatch

General manager Mark McCullers
said, "Sigi is a passionate person and clearly he made [those comments] in an emotional moment. If all of our players were as emotional
and engaging as Sigi Schmid, we probably wouldn't be in a 13-game winless streak right now."
Columbus hosts the New York Red Bulls on Saturday, 7:30 pm ET, live on Fox Soccer Channel
& Direct Kick.
