FORMER Manchester United coach Chris Armas is set for his first managerial job in two years, according to reports.
The Athletic claim that the Colorado Rapids are on the verge of hiring the former United man.
Armas was regularly spotted with a pair of AirPods in his earsPA
Manchester United‘s stars were left frustrated by Rangnick’s apparently “old fashioned” approach to managing and the fact that he left most of the coaching to Armas.
The coach cut a distinctive figure thanks to the fact he always had a pair of Apple AirPods in his ears while on the bench – something he used to communicate with fellow coach Ewan Sharp.
After leaving Manchester United along with Rangnick in 2022, Armas had a brief stint at Leeds under Jesse Marsch‘s stewardship.
Armas took over from Marsch at the New York Red Bulls in 2018 in his job in football as a manager.
He won the MLS supporters shield trophy with the team and had a record of 33 wins, 27 draws and 11 defeats.
His only other job as a manager came when he was coach of Toronto FC in 2021 – but he was let go after just 11 matches.
His new side, The Colorado Rapids finished bottom of the MLS Western Conference last season.
The Rapids parted ways with former coach Robin Fraser in September.
Armas had a successful MLS career as a player, being named in the MLS best XI five times.
He won an MLS Cup and four US Open Cups with the Chicago Fire.
Armas also made 66 appearances for the US national team between 1998 and 2005.
