Tearful Jill Ellis on her ‘unbelievable journey’ as USWNT coach

Jill Ellis has taken charge of her last game as US national team manager, leaving as the most successful coach in its history. During her tenure as coach, she won two Women’s World Cups and finished with a record of 106 victories out of 132 matches. An emotional Ellis spoke after her final game: ‘It’s a sense of feeling like it’s a story written and it’s a chapter closed and it’s on to other things. But it’s been an unbelievable journey.’ She added that her role has ‘been the most rewarding job I’ve ever had’. A successor to Ellis is yet to be announced. She has also yet to make a decision on her future
