DC United to keep Olsen on as head coach

Ben Olsen is likely to be kept on as DC United's head coach according to the Washington Post.

Despite the Washington club sitting at the foot of the MLS table with a paltry three wins from 31 games, sources suggest that Olsen will retain his job.

The 36-year old took the reins at DC in 2010, taking the club to the Eastern Conference playoffs last season, and guiding them to victory in the Lamar Hunt US Open Cup earlier this month.

It is also believed that general manager Dave Kasper will also keep his job as the club's investors - Jason Levien, Erick Thohir and Will Chang - look to the future after a disappointing campaign.
