Eddies Add Shervin Hajami To Technical Staff

It looks like FC Edmonton has recruited Shervin Hajami as its Manager of Team Operations ahead of the 2022 Canadian Premier League season.
The club’s technical staff has seen some turnover ahead of an unprecedented roster rebuild whilst FC Edmonton seeks out a new owner. While head coach Alan Koch has stayed on, Jay Bhindi left for Valour FC whilst long-time goalkeeper coach Lars Hirschfeld has been replaced by an as-yet-unrevealed coaching addition.
The club is set to have a ‘full new staff’ under Koch, which makes it somewhat unclear Brendan Shaw remains – he was still with them at the time of the 2022 CPL-U SPORTS Draft.
Shervin appears to have only recently joined the side, where he’ll add a local lens to the Alberta-based club. Having coached within the province for years, Hajami is concurrently in an internship role with Canada Soccer as a Canadian women’s national team remote analyst, too.
Hajami has also volunteered with Edmonton Scottish United, a local football academy which FC Edmonton has recently targeted for potential player recruitment. The club is helmed by former FC Edmonton head coach Jeff Paulus, who will have a keen eye for young players ready to take the step up to the professional level.
Prior to that, the newest member of the Eddies coaching roster has worked with both Free Play For Kids and the Fort McMurray Youth Soccer Association, having also coached Alberta to a medal finish at the 2018 Arctic Winter Games, where his team returned from the Northwest Territories with a bronze from futsal.
