Former Wolves and Sunderland midfielder Carl Robinson has been released as head coach of the Vancouver Whitecaps.
Robinson, who picked up 52 caps for Wales between 1999 and 2009, headed across the Atlantic after spells at Norwich and Portsmouth, playing in the latter’s promotion-winning side of 2002-03.
He took the reigns of the Major League Soccer side in December 2013 and recorded 75 wins and 75 losses in his 200 games in charge, guiding the club to a Canadian Championship in 2015 and the semi-finals of the Concacaf Champions League in 2016-17.
