Gerard Nijkamp and FC Cincinnati part ways – 7-20-10 record while in charge

By FPL360


Day after deadline day 

Major League Soccer side FC Cincinnati announced on Friday that they have parted ways “effective immediately” with general manager Gerard Nijkamp. The announcement was less than 24 hours after the MLS summer transfer window closed.


“I would like to thank Gerard for his commitment and dedication to FC Cincinnati. Gerard has been a key leader in the development in our project – opening of TQL Stadium, improving the roster, player development from the Academy to the first team, and building a broader soccer infrastructure that positions us for success in the future,” said FC Cincinnati President Jeff Berding in a club statement. “We sincerely appreciate Gerard’s efforts over the past two years and respect his decision to return to his family in Europe. 

Nijkamp joined the club in May 2019 and has guided the team to a 7-20-10 regular-season record. Since the inception of the club to MLS in 2019, FC Cincy have never made the playoffs. The club is currently in 10th place in the Eastern Conference (to the standings). “I’m proud of the foundation we have here and all the hard work everyone has put into it,” said Nijkamp. “I will always be thankful to ownership and leadership for the chance to serve this club.”
