Haitian soccer player Eloi named coach of FC Miami City Champions

Former coach of the Haitian soccer team, former player Wagneau Eloi, has been named the new coach for the FC Miami City Champions. The announcement was made in early December that Eloi had been named Head Coach, after spending time as technical director of the US Champions Soccer Academy he co-founded. His post is as head of the new expansion in the metropolitan area of Miami, Florida of the PDL expansion franchise.


Eloi carries with him an impressive record. Early in life he lived in Paris, France, where he began in a Red Star FC youth program, playing for four seasons. From then, he was a part of the Paris Football Club, then of the Racing Club de Lens as a first-time professional player. He spent four years there before joining AS Nancy Lorraine, where he met his future mentor and coach, Roger Lemerre. Through Lemerre's help, Eloi would win his first championship title, and he caught the eye of AS Monaco FC's president, who enlisted him. By 2002, Eloi would play with Guingamp, before later moving to Belgium to play with La Louviere and Roeselaere. Following these steps, Eloi moved back to Haiti and became the national team's head coach.

Eloi, upon his appointment, expressed his belief in the ability in the team to attain their goals. Ravy Truchot, founder of FC Miami City Champions, said the foundation was pleased to have a player of his experience and renown as their coach. Tryouts for spots on the team will be held at Kendall Soccer Park from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on January 9, 17, and 18.
