Late Sunday Evening, Minnesota United announced that they had parted with their goalkeeping coach, Marius Røvde. The report says that the two sides had “mutually” agreed to part ways.

Not much further is known at this time. According to Megan Ryan of the Star Tribune, Røvde has been away for several weeks.

Marius Røvde signed on with the Loons in January of this year as the team’s first goalkeeping coach in MLS. It is tough to judge his success as Bobby Shuttleworth has been playing much better of late, Patrick McLain has not had much opportunity to start, and John Alvbage was injured early before returning to Sweden at the end of his loan.

E Pluribus Loonum will continue to monitor the situation, and updates will come as we know them.
