Andy Quy Continues his Coaching Journey at MLS Franchise Charlotte FC
Andy Quy has landed a new contract to continue his American adventure at ambitious Major League Soccer franchise Charlotte FC.
The 46-year-old Football Careers client originally moved to the Bank of America Stadium to oversee the development of the club’s goalkeepers.
When Charlotte’s first Head Coach Miguel Angel Ramirez was replaced by Christian Lattanzio during their inaugural season, though, Andy stepped up to be an Assistant Coach.
Now he is returning to that role for 2023 in an exciting new-look Lattanzio technical staff that also includes Quy’s fellow Football Careers client Pa-Modou Kah and title-winning Leicester City left-back Christian Fuchs.
Quy brings a wealth of experience to his new role. He spent 12 years at Stoke City where he played his part in the development of international goalkeeping stars Thomas Sorensen (Denmark), Jack Butland (England) and Asmir Begovic (Bosnia and Herzegovina).
Last season – after an influential spell at Brentford where he coached current Premiership star David Raya – Quy left behind his role at English League One side Burton Albion to begin his American adventure.
In their opening season Charlotte finished a creditable ninth place out of 14 teams in the Eastern Conference and were just six points off the play-off positions.
Now Andy will be part of the quest to go one better this time around and make post-season play.
Charlotte, owned by billionaire hedge fund manager David Tepper, play at Bank of America Stadium which is a 75,525-seat American football venue that is the home of NFL’s Carolina Panthers.
The stadium has been renovated to accommodate “soccer” with new dressing-rooms tunnel at halfway and the club use only the lower section of their vast area with capacity capped at 40,000 fans.
Charlotte will hope that still produces an intimidating atmosphere next month as they kick off this year’s MLS with a home clash against New England Revolution on February 25.
