A criminal complaint has been filed against Ron Jans, the coach of the FC Cincinnati, that he made racist comments. The Major Super League (MLS) is investigating the case. Jans has stepped away from his coaching position in the meantime. The complaint has been filed by the MLS Players Association. The association said, “We have made a report to the inappropriate league officials.”

The association said that they expected a thorough and quick investigation by the MLS. The sources said that Jans was allegedly involved in using the N-words in front of players. The FC Cincinnati hired Jans in August at an 18-month contract. The preseason training of the team is at the middle stage. The Cincinnati players are getting training at IMG Academy in Florida. The MLS season will begin March 1 at the New York Red Bulls.

Jeff Berding, the president of the FC Cincinnati, denied commenting on the matter. The team issued a statement related to the investigation launched against its coach. The team stated, “When club leadership was made aware of the allegation, we were very surprised.” The team said that the focus of Jans was to build a caring and committed culture.

Being inclusive and family-friendly, having a strong and visible presence in the community, and winning on the field are the core values of the club. The team wanted to understand the nature of the incident completely. The MLS officials notified the team about the allegation on Thursday. According to the club schedule, Jans was going to talk to the media on a conference call Friday afternoon. The team announced on Friday morning that the call has been rescheduled.

A spokesman of the MLSPA said, “We have made a report to the appropriate league officials.” Jans focused on creating a positive culture since his arrival in the team. Alan Koch, the former coach of the FC Cincinnati, was fired on the base of the cultural issues. Jans has stepped away from his coaching responsibilities amid the recent investigation.
