New York City Football Club Interim Head Coach Nick Cushing has revealed it is a privilege to lead the Club. 

Cushing, who has spent three years as assistant coach with NYCFC was promoted to Interim Head Coach in the wake of Ronny Deila's departure to Belgian club Standard Liege this week. His first game in charge will arrive on Sunday when NYCFC welcomes the Colorado Rapids to Yankee Stadium. Speaking to reporters on Monday, Cushing expressed his pride at being given the opportunity to take the club forward. 

"I think during a period of change we have to think short term in terms of settling down the team - we're in a really good place," he said. "I think for us, it's about making sure that this team is prepared this week for the Colorado Rapids game. I understand the questions will come around wanting the job and the way that I approach the job. I've worked within the group for a long time and I understand that it is a huge privilege to lead the team and for me that starts this week with Colorado."
