Major League Soccer's New England Revolution this week placed head coach Bruce Arena on leave following allegations he made "insensitive and inappropriate remarks."
Technical director Curt Onalfo and assistant Richie Williams will act as interim coaches during the Revolution's upcoming match against Atlas at the Leagues Cup.
"The New England Revolution organization has placed Coach Arena on administrative leave as a result of an ongoing investigation being conducted by Major League Soccer into allegations of insensitive and inappropriate remarks," the club said in a statement. "The organization takes any allegations of workplace misconduct extremely seriously and is working closely with the League and fully cooperating with its investigation."
No information was immediately available on what Arena is alleged to have said.
Arena was previously with the D.C. United, New York Red Bulls and Los Angeles Galaxy. He joined the Revolution in 2019 and is the sporting director.
