She had taken them to Italy and immersed them in an obsessive soccer culture. She had stood beside them as both fought the Canadian Soccer Association – the players for compensation, Morace for autonomy – and in winning those battles, had created what every coach desires, a sense of us against the world.

Fairly balanced article, imo. I hope they find a coach by the end of the summer.
