Sorry to hear that.

Who says that the Crapids FO isn't motivated? They got a Clavijo family member "sick".

Whatever you feel about how good or not Fernando Clavijo the MLS coach is, Fernando Clavijo the human being is a wonderful person. It's never a good time for loved on to get sick. That said the timing of this is rather unfortunate. Whatever has happened, I wish the best for them.

I know Fernando. One of the really good people in American soccer. Wish him the best.

poor guy! How much you wanna bet he decides to stay due to personal reasons?

talk about a run of bad luck in the family. Also a demonstration of why sometimes people don't want to work abroad (didn't Kenny Cooper come back to MLS partly because his dad was ill?)

best of luck to him and his family.

Dadryan, We don't want anyone getting sick in anyone's family.

It was an incredibly, non-funny comment.

Best wishes to Fernando Clavijo and his family.
