John Maessner, the former D.C. United player who is now the club’s director of youth development, is “taking some time off,” according to team officials, after incidents with some of the program’s under-16 and under-18 players at the USSF Development Academy Summer Showcase in Greensboro, N.C., last month. “It was bizarre. The kids were upset,” said one person (not affiliated with DCU) who witnessed the outbursts in Greensboro said. No other details were available.
Anyone know any more details?
