Charlotte FC is finalizing a new 3-year deal with interim head coach Christian Lattanzio to become the permanent manager of the club.

Christian Lattanzio was named as Interim-manger after the sacking of Charlotte FCs first official Head Coach Miguel Angel Ramirez at the end of May.Lattanzio has led the team to 7 wins, 1 draw, and 9 losses (22 points) since taking over as interim-manager with three games remaining and playoffs still possible, albeit unlikely.

Lattanzio has proven once again his knack for helping to develop players, with McKinze Gaines, Brandt Bronico, and Ben Bender all praising the 1 on 1 work with Lattanzio and crediting him with helping their improvements. Nothing is official yet but negotiations are heading in the right direction and deal will soon strike.
