Bingo. You need someone who understands the culture, officials and tactics of your own region. Its a region vastly different than Europe with hits own quirks and needs. If you cant find a good central american manager, then south america is the next best bet in that criteria
We know Canada has many other issues to deal with before the manager will make a big difference on the club, but hiring a euro is just money wasted.
As for the above poster, you can't compare the women's game and the men's game. For starters, I'm not even sure the route that the women have to go through to qualify for major events, but the central american teams are not a threat at this point. Its a totally different situation.
But since we brought up the women's coach, isn't he from New Zealand? Moot point, either way
