A Report from Tony Marinaro of TSN690 sends Enzo Concinca to the Montreal Impact to bolster the club's coaching staff. Concina would join the team as an assistant coach to Frank Klopas. An earlier report from Nick Sabetti confirmed that Assistant coach Nick Kounenakis was not returning to the Impact in 2015.

It's not the first time that Enzo Concina's name is mentioned around the Impact. The ex-Napoli SSC assistant coach with Walter Mazzarri was an Impact player in 1994, where he ended his professional career. After Napoli, the Italian-Canadian technician followed Mazzarri at Inter Milan.
On March 2014, D.C. United hired Enzo Concina as a new assistant coach and joined the club's technical staff from FC Internazionale Milano.
It's an interesting addition if Tony Marinaro's report is confirmed by the Impact as the club would replace a staff member selected by Klopas by an ex-Impact player. With his experience, Concina is basically slotted as a potential replacement if performances under Klopas are not deemed satisfactory.
