Ever since Stephen Hart stepped down as coach of the Canadian men’s team, fans and media have tried to come up with a short list of possible candidates.
Hart quit his post in the aftermath of Canada’s 8-1 loss to Honduras, a result that eliminated the Reds from World Cup contention.
Since then, at least one person has publically stated he’s interested in the job: former Canadian national team forward Paul Peschisolido.
"It’s a job I would love to be considered for," Peschisolido told Sportsnet last month. "Being a Canadian, having the stint here (in England) in management… I feel I have a lot to offer."
As far as finding Hart’s replacement, Canadian Soccer Association president Victor Montagliani said the position will be open to both Canadian and international managers.
"We will be looking for the best candidate for this program, keeping in mind that one of the key ingredients is not just international experience, but also having the understanding of what it means to compete in the environments that we just experienced (in Central America)… which are significantly different than standing on other sidelines in other place in the world where you have to qualify," Montagliani stated.
All of which raises the big question: Should the next coach of Canada’s national men’s team be a Canadian?
