The Montréal impact dropped quite the bombshell just moments ago:
L'Impact annonce que Rémi Garde a été démis de ses fonctions. Wilmer Cabrera est nommé entraîneur-chef.— Impact de Montréal (@impactmontreal) August 21, 2019
Impact announces that Rémi Garde was relieved of his duties. Wilmer Cabrera is named Impact head coach.

It seems the utter capitulation that was the 3-3 Draw at home to FC Dallas over the weekend was the final straw in what’s been a short and not-so-sweet run for Garde, who joined the club in November 2017.
Stranger still, the club have also announced Garde’s replacement, Wilmer Cabrera, himself just a week removed from losing his job as the head of the Houston Dynamo.
Cabrera's last win as Houston Dynamo coach was at TFC in July. Now he takes over an Impact side battling with them for a playoff spot and the Canadian Championship. #TFCLive— Oliver Platt (@plattoli) August 21, 2019
Way I see it, it’s either the smartest play in the history of the franchise, or an unmitigated disaster. Not much middle ground here.
What do you think?
