LA Galaxy have parted ways with chairman Chris Klein after a terrible start to the Major League Soccer season.
Galaxy has two wins in 14 games in MLS so far and is three points behind second-bottom Colorado.
Galaxy CEO Dan Beckerman said in a statement on Tuesday: “As a club, we have not achieved our goals or met the standard we have set for the LA Galaxy.”
“We believe it is in the interest of the club to effect change and begin a comprehensive process of finding new leadership that will bring the club back to the level our fans and partners have come to expect.”
“We are grateful to Chris for his ears of dedication and commitment to the LA Galaxy as a player and manager.”
