FOXBOROUGH, Mass. (WLNE) — The New England Revolution announced Tuesday that head coach Bruce Arena has been placed on administrative leave due to an investigation into “insensitive and inappropriate remarks.”

In their statement, the Revolution said the investigation into Arena is being conducted by Major League Soccer.

“The organization takes any allegations of workplace misconduct extremely seriously and is working closely with the League and fully cooperating with its investigation,” reads the team statement.

MLS confirmed in a statement that Arena is on administrative leave “pending a review into allegations that he made insensitive and inappropriate remarks.”
