Canada Soccer have announced that Women’s National Team Head Coach Kenneth Heiner-Møller will leave his role after August 2020.

Heiner-Møller posted an international record of 20 wins, 5 draws and 10 losses, leading Canada to qualification for both the World Cup and Olympic Games.

He will return to the Danish FA as Head of Coach Education, having previously served as Denmark’s Women’s National Team Head Coach for seven years, featuring bronze medal at EURO 2013.

President Steven Reed told canadasoccer.com of Heiner-Møller: “He is a highly-regarded coach who gained the respect of the Canadian soccer community in his time with our organization and we thank him for his genuine approach with both players and staff.”

“This was not an easy decision to make because of the quality of the people that I have had the pleasure to work with since my time at Canada Soccer,” said Head Coach Heiner-Møller. “As a leader in the women’s game, Canada Soccer’s investment in the Women’s National Team Program will ensure its continued success.”
