COMMERCE CITY Michael Bradley Jersey , Colo. (AP) — The Colorado Rapids have named former Major League Soccer player and longtime assistant Robin Fraser as their head coach.Fraser steps in for Conor Casey, who’s been the interim coach since the team fired Anthony Hudson in May. Colorado is 7-14-6 and at the bottom of the Western Conference standings.Fraser’s first match in charge will be Saturday at the New York Red Bulls.The 52-year-old Fraser has served as an assistant coach at Toronto FC since 2015.Fraser was the fourth overall pick in the 1996 MLS player draft by the Los Angeles Galaxy. Over his career, Fraser suited up for the Galaxy, the Rapids and the Columbus Crew. He said in a statement Sunday he considers Colorado home because he’s so familiar with the soccer community.Rapids general manager Padraig Smith said Fraser has a “deep knowledge of what it takes to be successful in MLS.” Ole Gunnar Solskj忙r became the first manager in Manchester United’s long history to win their first six league matches. With the win against Tottenham, away at Wembley, the Norwegian has made a huge step in winning over the hearts of the fans to stake his place as the long-term manager of the club.聽While there is very little room for sentiment in the modern game, Manchester United fans are coming around to the idea that Solskj忙r could really have what it takes in order to lift the Red Devils back up to challenging for titles. While it is still early to say whether he should be given the job, no one can fault the strides he has made so far – especially with the six wins to his name.The Norwegian’s first real test came against Spurs and it is fair to say that he passed it with flying colours. Man United passed the ball round well in the opening half DeAndre Yedlin Jersey , often outplaying Tottenham and continually finding routes in behind their defence. With the effervescent front three of Anthony Martial, Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard, Solskj忙r instructed his forward players to interchange and become as fluid as possible.The goal, born from Paul Pogba’s magisterial right foot, was clearly something they had practiced while out in Dubai the week before. Pogba looked up and within a flash executed an immaculate parabola of a pass into the path of Rashford. Within seconds, the ball was past Hugo Lloris and Manchester United were in front.Although the Red Devils had to defend with their backs firmly up against the wall for the last 20 minutes, they came through that, largely due to the world-class efforts of David de Gea. The Spaniard has taken some stick from the wider media this season https://www.thetopsoccer.com/usa/matt-miazga-jersey , as well as throughout last summer’s World Cup, but responded brilliantly with 11 saves that kept Tottenham at bay.What was perhaps most pleasing to fans was the fact that United actually went to Wembley and pressed from the front – something that would not have happened under Jos茅 Mourinho. They made mistakes at times, as all players do, but they did not give up in achieving their game plan and came away with the crucial three points.Brighton & Hove Albion, Burnley, Leicester City and Fulham read Manchester United’s next four Premier League games before they take on Paris Saint-Germain in the Champions League. They have already made up the gap to Arsenal, now level on points in fifth place, with six more separating themselves and Chelsea in fourth.For Solskj忙r Gyasi Zardes Jersey , he could not have asked for a better run of fixtures over the Christmas break and into the new year. While some games are going to throw challenges and obstacles in his way, the Norwegian manager, currently on-loan from Molde, should be able to pick up maximum points over the next four Premier League matches.Injuries might take their toll and United’s wider squad is not littered with quality, but if Solskj忙r keeps the players hungry and can continue taking to the field in the manner they are at the moment, they will be too much to handle for most teams – just as they were for Mauricio Pochettino’s Spurs.There is still a long and winding road until the end of season in May, with plenty of mistakes to happen along the way for teams above Man United. If the club keeps its cool in the pressured moments and pick up maximum points from the ‘lesser’ opponents, they should find themselves in with a chance to strike for Champions League qualification for the following season.Football is not always as what is before you on paper Bobby Wood Jersey , which is why there can be no shortcuts or complacency coming from Solskj忙r. With Sir Alex Ferguson in-and-around Carrington, looking over training, as well as Mike Phelan as his assistant manager, that is unlikely to happen. After all, the ‘baby-faced assassin’ will do everything within his power to make the job his own.
