One of the most prominent agents on the American soccer scene is none too happy with Revolution general manager Michael Burns.

New York-based sports agent Ron Waxman, who represents U.S. Men’s National Team star Michael Bradley, tweeted about his displeasure with Burns on Saturday.

Waxman tweeted his thoughts on Burns not long after the 10th-place Revolution suffered their 10th loss of the season, a 4-1 shellacking to the Chicago Fire.

But Waxman, who also represented Shalrie Joseph during the midfielder’s time in New England, did not stop there. In response to questions about the above tweet, he reaffirmed his opinion on the Revolution’s top personnel person.

However, Waxman did take a moment to offer a compliment to Burns.

The Revolution declined to comment on Waxman’s comments.

It is unclear whether Waxman’s tweet was in response to a recent negotiation with the club.
