A report in Spain says veteran Spanish manager Benito Floro will be Canada’s next men’s soccer coach.
Marca, a Spanish national daily sports newspaper, says the 61-year-old Floro is Canada’s choice.
Floro has a lengthy resume that includes managing Real Madrid from 1992 to 1994. Most recently he coached WAC (Wydad Athletic Club) Morocco.
Canada has been without a full-time coach since Stephen Hart stepped down last fall following the national team’s exit from World Cup qualifying. Colin Miller is currently serving as acting coach at the Gold Cup.
The Canadian Soccer Association plans a major announcement at a news conference Friday.
Several CSA spokesman declined comment on the Marca report.
