John Spencer career update

John Spencer and his family have reportedly moved back to Houston, and he appeared this week on Glenn Davis' radio show Soccer Matters. Most of the discussion revolved around the Manchester United news and the second part of the interview appears unavailable at the moment, but here are some salient quotes.

Glenn Davis: What's going on in John Spencer's career right now, and what do we see happening potentially in the future?

John Spencer: Well, I think it's been well-documented that I left Portland last July, and I was fifteen games into a three-year contract when I left the post or got fired, whatever way you want to describe it, and I've got eighteen months of that contract left. As you well know in professional sports, it's a waiting game. You can't create a position that's not there. So it's basically just waiting, seeing out my contract, seeing what other jobs come up. If I get a nod for any of them, I'm certainly going to speak to clubs if they came up to me.

GD: So managing remains in your future?

JS: Oh of course it does. I think that I proved, over the short time I was in the job at Portland, I could coach against the best in the league. It's like anything, you need to be given time to prove.

Alright guys, I don't believe I have to say this but, just in case, please do not submit anything racist, homophobic, sexist or otherwise not appropriate for even the younger Timbers fans.
