Vancouver Whitecaps head coach Carl Robinson has added English journeyman Martyn Pert to his coaching staff.

The former Norwich City academy coach, who has had stints with Watford, Fulham, Coventry City and Cardiff City, joins assistant Gordon Forrest and goalkeeping coach Marius Rovde on Robinson's panel.

Recently, Pert was hired then fired as head coach at El Nacional, Ecuador's biggest club, before he'd even met the players due to a change in ownership.

He worked closely with Whitecaps captain Jay DeMerit during his time at Watford.
