The future of Columbus Crew manager Robert Warzycha has been speculated a lot in recent months. His contract with the club runs out at the end of the season. Even though the club has an option of an additional two years, there have been no indications from the club about extending his contract. Warzycha has been at Columbus for the last five years, and he has done an excellent job at the club. He has secured a number of wins during this period, which currently ranks him in the fourth position since 2008.
His last new contract was signed back in 2011. The two-year contract, which he signed by them, came with an additional option of two years depending on his performances. Now that he is coming to the end of this stipulated period, there has been talk about the board extending his deal. The Columbus Crew owner Clark Hunt was recently put forward the question, and he said that all that Warzycha needs to do at the moment is win matches. The club have made a decent start to the new MLS season.
They have managed two victories in the first four matches, but this also includes a loss against Vancouver Whitecaps and a draw against San Jose earthquakes.
“Ultimately, coaches are evaluated by wins and losses. I do think the 2013 team reflects what he wants on the field with the players and the tactics that those players allow us to employ. Really, this is his team, and we’re optimistic and very hopeful that he’s going to be successful,” said Clark Hunt. “Robert as a player was a technically gifted player, a quality player. I want our team to be high quality. He was a winner. Winning was most important. He put his teammates before himself,” said the club’s general manager, McCullers.
