Galaxy name new coach

Los Angeles Galaxy have announced that Bruce Arena has been named General Manager and Head Coach.

Arena led the U.S. national team to the FIFA World Cup twice, taking over as head coach in November 1998 and was in charge for nearly eight years. He has also won the MLS cup twice with DC United.

"I am very excited to assume this position with the Los Angeles Galaxy," said Arena. "I realize we have a lot of work ahead of us and I am optimistic that with the support of management, our coaching staff and the players, we will move forward to positioning this team to qualify for this season's MLS playoffs. My ultimate goal is to win championships and build a club that all of our fans will be proud of," Arena added.

Following the 2006 World Cup, Arena returned to MLS in August 2006, when he was named the Sporting Director and Head Coach of the New York Red Bulls.
