ASN Morning Read: A Split at the Top of USSF?
November 02, 2017
- "The race to become the next leader of U.S. Soccer took an unexpected twist on Wednesday, as Carlos Cordeiro -- the vice president of U.S. Soccer and a longtime friend and colleague of the current president, Sunil Gulati -- has entered the campaign for the top job himself. Many observers assumed Cordeiro would simply support Gulati's bid to win one final term as president, but Cordeiro -- a former partner at Goldman Sachs who has been increasingly involved in the soccer world over the past 10 years -- is striking out on his own."
- Gulati gone?
This has to mean Sunil will not run. No way Carlos, Sunil's wingman, runs against him. https://t.co/QsHAQhepZ2— Paul Kennedy (@pkedit) November 1, 2017
- Maybe not:
I talked w/ Carlos Cordeiro earlier tonight. He says his "decision to run was independent of anyone else's running." Interview posted later.— Paul Kennedy (@pkedit) November 2, 2017

- "Al Clark knows more about building a Major League Soccer team than just about anyone. Clark has spent countless hours compiling 'gargantuan' spreadsheets that detail player designations, contract lengths, mechanisms used to acquire those players and even estimates on what they earn and how they affect their teams’ salary caps. Each time a player is added to the spreadsheet, it throws everything into disarray, meaning more work for Clark."
