New York City FC began life under interim head coach Nick Cushing with a 1-1 draw at home to the Colorado Rapids on Sunday. The reigning MLS Cup champions came into the match off of the shock loss of head coach Ronny Deila, who departed for Belgian side Standard Liege last week. In his absence, former assistant Cushing has taken up the role until the end of the season with a very clear intention: keep on doing the same things that have made NYCFC so successful over the past couple of years.
New York City FC have announced that head coach Ronny Deila has left after three seasons in charge to manage Belgian side Standard Liege. NYCFC assistant coach Nick Cushing will take over as interim manager, with an opportunity to be considered for the permanent job depending on results, while coaches Mehdi Ballouchy and Rob Vartughian are remaining on staff, with all three having signed new long-term contracts.

NYCFC named assistant coach Nick Cushing the interim head coach. According to ESPN, Standard Liege is paying NYCFC at least $1 million for the 46-year-old Deila and NYCFC assistant Efrain Juarez. “We know this was not a decision Ronny took lightly, but we understand his desire to return to Europe and be closer to home,” NYCFC sporting director David Lee said of the Norwegian Deila in a statement. “He has been a true leader since joining the Club and we wish him well for the next challenge in his career.” NYCFC (8-3-2) currently leads the MLS Eastern Conference with 26 points.
