Former Tottenham Hotspur youngster Kieran McKenna has joined Vancouver Whitecaps as a guest assistant coach.

The former Northern Ireland Under-21 international was forced to retire in March 2009 due to a hip injury and decided to progress a career in coaching.

“I am very excited about coming to Vancouver,” McKenna told last week. “I know the Whitecaps youth program is regarded as the best in North America and I am excited to contribute to the ambitious plans of the club.”

“It was obviously devastating when I had to stop playing at a young age, but with the support of my family, I stayed positive and looked to the future,” he added.

We’d like to wish Kieran all the best for the future.
