One following US soccer's development (9)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

successor

Here is my best explanation:

'one following' is the definition.

(thesaurus)

'us soccer's development' is the subsidiary indication.

'development' is an anagram indicator.

'us'+'soccers'='ussoccers'

'ussoccers' is an anagram of 'successor'.

This clue was last seen in The Guardian

(Other definitions for successor that I've seen before include "Person taking over from another", "One taking over from another", "Heir", "One follows next in order", "Follower (in post)", "One who follows another", "One following another" and "Person who follows next in order".)
