Frank Yallop has left San Jose Earthquakes after seven years at the helm to replace Hans Backe – fired a fortnight ago – at New York Red Bulls. Yallop was unable to bring back the glory days he had previously enjoyed with San Jose during his first spell at the club between 2001-03, where the side won the MLS in 2001 and 2003, and finished runners-up in the Supporters’ Shield in 2002 and 2003.
