Missouri Comets introduce Coach Roentved

Coach Kim Roentved at press conference...

The Missouri Comets introduced indoor soccer great Kim Roentved as their head coach yesterday. Gino Schiraldi, Alan Mayer and other former teammates attended the press conference to lend support to their longtime friend. I was able to talk with Coach Roentved briefly.

Zoran Savic speaks about Roentved's selection as coach...

Gino Schiraldi was very happy for Roentved as well...

It sounds like Gino Schiraldi and other former Comet greats may help out with coaching as well.

During the press conference Coach Roentved did give a little info about his plans. Approximately 6 weeks prior to the season starting there will be an open tryout. Then 5 weeks before the season there will be an invitational tryout. Training camp will open 3 weeks or so before the season.

MISL note: Omaha was announced as another MISL expansion team for this season. This will provide the Missouri Comets with a regional rival. It was reported that Omaha will be called the Vipers but I have not seen an official announcement yet.
