Abby Wambach Slams Fired Coach Rumors

Abby Wambach has spoken out against any rumors that she and her team were responsible for the sacking of coach Sermanni. She in fact said that they all really honored and loved the Scot Sermanni. 

Abby Wambach, 33 years old team caption, said, ”Everybody out there who may think the players made this happen, none of it’s true.That’s not anyone’s fault. That’s the hard part.”

”I wish he was a jerk in some ways because it would be easier. But that’s just not the case. He’s such a good guy. He treated us all with the utmost respect and we couldn’t wish him nothing but the best of luck.”

Tom Sermanni had taken over the helm as the coach of the United States Women’s Soccer team. Sermanni’s brusque pink slip came after the US won against China. An interim head coach will be replacing Sermanni. 

Wambach commented on how the coach who had left them didn’t bear any grudges. She reminisced how he actually gathered all the team players and wished them best of luck even after he had been shown the door by the management. Sermanni’s self-respect was evident from his magnanimity and serenity at the moment. 

”The hard part is Tom is such an amazing guy and he is so classy and the way he handled himself even after being told he was being let go was maybe some of the best people experience I’ve ever seen,” added Wambach.

”He handled himself with the utmost respect, wished us the very best. He did the very best that he could. He’s brought us along for these last 15 months to here. We love and care for him so much and we appreciate everything that has happened.”

Maybe the real reason for Sermanni’s dismissal was the overall poor performance of the team in the series. The US team finished seventh which led to quite a lot of criticism from certain quarters against Sermanni. But it was not exactly Tom Sermanni’s fault. 

In the words of many players, it was actually the team’s fault. They were the ones who had failed Sermanni instead of the other way around. Abby Wambach and several other players joined in the chorus of voices complaining about Sermanni’s ousting from his position as coach. 

They expressed their shock at the unceremonious dismissal. Some said that he was such a warm, lovable and huggable guy. Most of all, he was highly respected by everyone. Sermanni was not a jerk and he didn’t deserve such treatment. 

The players have unanimously announced to the press in unison with captain Abby Wambach that they were not responsible in any way for what happened to coach Sermanni. They will miss him since he was a nice and friendly coach who gave them the best in training tactics and success strategy.
