Jaime Moreno is a family man. Jaime and his wife Louise have five beautiful children, who have all grown up as a part of the D.C. United family. During our recent trip to Jaime’s home, we spoke with his children about their favorite memories watching their dad on the field and what it’s like to have a legend for a father. Of his five children, only his daughter Lilly was a little too shy to join us on camera, but she’s still very proud of her dad, too.
Como ese primer amor sincero e irrepetible que dice adiós, la despedida de Jaime Moreno marcará de por vida al D.C. United, que aunque le brinde un agasajo acorde a la magnitud de su figura, este podrá no disimular la congoja de unos hinchas con la garganta quebrantada luego de gritar 132 veces Moreno.
Entre los miles que dirán presente en el Estadio RFK, estará el argentino Christian Gómez, quien también hizo lo suyo con la casaca del United y conserva una profunda amistad con el récordman boliviano.

In an interview with Soccer

team plays the others the same number of times; or 2) moving back to an
unbalanced schedule that promotes rivalries.

WASHINGTON – Ben Olsen will lead D.C. United into battle against Toronto FC in the final game of a three-month stint as interim head coach on Saturday night, and the close of that testing tenure is surely on his mind.

NEW YORK – D.C. United President and CEO Kevin Payne has confirmed that
current DC interim manager Ben Olsen will not be a candidate for the head-coaching job in 2011.
