Orlando City chief soccer officer Armando Carneiro leaves position
Orlando City's chief soccer officer Armando Carneiro has resigned for personal reasons, the MLS club announced on Monday.
Carneiro joined Orlando City from Porto less than two months ago to oversee operations and staff.
"We fully understand Armando's personal reasons for stepping down from his role and respect his wishes. We thank him for his help and wish him luck with his future career," Orlando City president Phil Rawlins said in a statement.
Rawlins will fulfill Carneiro's duties on a temporary basis.
"Our focus in the next few weeks will be on the upcoming drafts, finalizing our rosters and putting together a successful preseason that will properly prepare all three teams to kick off their 2016 campaigns," Rawlins said.
"Our goal for the coming year is nothing less than reaching playoffs with both the Lions and [the NWSL's] Pride, and we are keenly focused on achieving that goal for our fans and our club."
